The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild brings about the most monumental change in the Zelda system since its foray into 3D. The titular Nintendo series is shifting nearly all its parts, with the land of Hyrule more expansive than ever before, traditional Zelda gameplay being turned on its head, and now an alternative ending.

Players will have a chance to experience up to two endings for Breath of the Wild under certain circumstances. The normal ending will be presented to all players but, a second ending can only be unveiled after meeting a number of conditions, of which all are still a secret.

Director and Producer on Breath of the Wild Eiji Aonuma, sat down with IGN Portugal to discuss more details on everything coming to players on March 3rd.

“There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending.” Aonuma revealed.

Aonuma also told IGN that Link’s favorite companion Epona, is set to make a return. This fact had been speculated by fans since the initial reveal of Breath of the Wild with footage of a horse but never confirmed as Epona until now.

Alternative endings are a staple of the Zelda series but, have always been out of the player’s control. The branching ending narrative has only ever been presented as the idea of the Zelda timeline containing 3 canon endings branching from the first 3D Zelda, Ocarina of Time.

At this point it is unclear which timeline Breath of the Wild sits in, but many fans have theorized that the game takes place in a post Wind Waker Hyrule due to the inclusion of certain key characters.

Players can get their hands on Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch and Wii U on March 3rd, 2017.

Hey there! My name is Kyle Boren and I have loved games since the first time I booted up Link's Awakening on my Gameboy despite never even beating the game. I believe gaming is one of the most influential mediums in the world today. The deep connections gamers can feel to the characters, story, or environment to their games has long been a life dream for me to be apart of. You can follow me on Twitter @kboren92 but be warned I think I am funnier then I actually am and I am a big Dallas sports fan. I am also an author, my book Uprising available on CreateSpace now. Thanks for taking the time to read my work and please comment with any of your own viewpoints! And if I don't see you good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight!
