There’s a rumour going around on Reddit that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is coming to Android. That’s a very exciting proposition, but is there any truth to it?
The source is TapTap.com, a reputable Chinese mobile games platform. A recent page on the site detailed a 2018 release for the game, and allowed you to register for more information.
It’s pretty light on any real information though, and there are no screenshots to speak of – other than a tweaked version of some artwork. That’s not really concrete enough for us.
We already know that Zelda will be the next Nintendo franchise to make it over to mobile. The Wall Street Journal reported on that back in May last year.
Is there any truth to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on mobile rumours?
But details have been sparse since then, with nothing further announced by Nintendo. If TapTap has a source for this information, we really need to see more evidence of it.
Nintendo did make a fully functional version of Breath of the Wild in the style of the original game back on NES. It would be a shame for that to never see the light of day, so a mobile release of that would be welcome.
Also, Nintendo recently released a set of iMessage stickers for Breath of the Wild in the App Store. Could that be ahead of a mobile release of the game?
Right now, we’d say there is insufficient evidence that Breath of the Wild is coming to mobile. We do know a Zelda is coming next year though, and it wouldn’t enormously surprise us if it was the Switch and Wii U game.
Crafting a personal Game of the Year list is one of my favorite holiday traditions. It’s my chance to get weird and profess my love for several projects that might not be all that popular, and give people a window into how I spend my time. Much of my schedule is dedicated to working on assignments and sifting through new releases each week, but there’s a handful of games I keep going back to — whether it’s by myself, with friends, or with my lovely wife.
2017 has been one hell of a year for games. While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One continue to hit their software strides, the Switch is bringing Nintendo back to its glory days. PC gaming remains stronger than ever and I can’t think of a year I’ve had a harder time making one of these lists.
It’s my first Game of the Year list at Destructoid so it’s nice that my biggest issue is trying to keep it at ten games. Without further delay let’s take a look at my favorite games of 2017.
