The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the nineteenth The Legend of Zelda video game, and the third Legend of Zelda title released for the Wii U.

Like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, it was a dual release, being a Nintendo Switch launch title as well. It promised to reconstruct the formula of The Legend of Zelda's adventuring and return to the sense of exploration that was included in the first game.
