Nintendo seems to have taken their plans for an open-world Zelda game seriously. Reports have been claiming that players are enjoying the ton of activities available in "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild". It has apparently resulted to the game's stellar reviews from various critics. The game's open-world gameplay and number of side quests might have caused players to overlook the "Hyrule Homeowner" quest, which allows Link to eventually acquire a house.

While players might already be used to the game's hero being a nomad, some gamers might want a little place to call their own in Hyrule. Game Rant points out that this quest seems less interesting compared to other missions that involve weapons and other items, but it might surprise players with unique charm that breaks away from combat and exploring. Link can also choose to decorate his residence as long as there are enough funds to cover the cost.

The first step to get Link a house in "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is to head over to Hateno Village. It is in East Hyrule south of Mount Lanaryu. Players might note the area from one of the game's mission to dye Link's clothes. Players should then head south near the Myahm Agana shrine. Further down south, player will pass through a wooden bridge and discover an old cottage. The NPC they should seek is named Bolson, who is behind the house.

To initiate the "Hyrule Homeowner" mission, players should talk to the foreman and express interest to purchase the house. He would initially offer to sell it for 50,000 rupees but will offer an alternative scheme once players agree to his offer. The quest will then require 30 wood bundles and drastically discounted price of 3,000 rupees.

It seems like "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" players still have a lot more to discover other than house ownership. A recent report Gamenguide has also revealed that the developers included a tribute to the late Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata. Players continue to speculate that the game could still keep a few secrets that might be discovered later on.
