As one of the most anticipated games for the Nintendo Switch, it makes sense to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Wii U in lieu of owning a Switch.
BotW follows Link, who has awoken from a 100-year slumber to a voice guiding him to defeat Calamity Ganon before he can destroy the kingdom of Hyrule. It's different from its counterparts in that it has an open world environment, a detailed physics engine, high-definition visuals, and well-done voice acting.
In BotW, the player controls multiple rune powers, how to cook, and how to navigate the harsh lands around them. This game is worth playing because it continues the world building from previous Legend of Zelda games, while still being exciting for those who are just now traversing into the world of Zelda.
