"The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" is expected to see possibilities of game structure problems and misses. Though the game has not been launched to Wii U and NX yet, scenarios such as lack of dungeons, performance issues, Amiibo problems and disparity between versions are suggested to arise.

"The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" Possible Issue #1

Nintendo repeatedly announced that players of "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" will see some kind of large dungeon structure but it has not been seen in the game so far. Instead, 100 smaller shrines have been advertised to dot the finished Hyrule map, relays Thumbsticks.

"The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" is also expected to experience some performance issues related to its capability to stretch across the Wii U and NX console generations. Wii U may not have the power enough to support some parts of the game adequately while NX is reportedly so new that a truly perfect port could be very difficult.

Amiibo support is another concern that may pose problems to "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild." The game has previously revealed Amiibo support but only a few minor hints have been seen that relates to it. One example is the ability of players to have a momentary buddy to help attack enemies when players scan the Wolf Link figure.

"The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" Possible Issue #4

There is also a suggested inconsistency between Wii U and NX versions which may cause issues with "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, as reported by Coming Soon. It is unclear what the difference would be between the two campaigns, especially that series producer Eiji Aonuma said that users would be able to get the same experience with both versions.

Aonuma's statement seems to be a little vague as there has got to be some advantage for those who will get the next-generation NX version, reportedly.

"The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" NX version is also rumored to be a hybrid home and portable console. The game is slated to come to Wii U and NX in 2017. Watch "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild" analysis video here.
