'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' News: A Bluer Than Blue Link Is Reportedly Coming; Hyrule Encyclopedia Allegedly In The Works

Three significant developments have surfaced as of late to further jazz up the imminent release of the much-awaited "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." The first one which emerged is one of the many official screenshots from the game itself while the second and the last come from a bluer-than-usual hue of the protagonist and the mysterious "Hyrule Encyclopedia."

Game developer giant Nintendo has recently unveiled a new screenshot fresh from the unreleased "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." The screenshot is believed to be one of the many screenshots the firm is purporting to reveal until the game is ultimately launched in 2017. The image, which was posted on the video game's official Facebook page, notes that it "shows part of Hyrule's landscape."

Meanwhile, fans of the upcoming iteration have speculated that such image would indicate that the game might very well be set in different seasons. The people behind "The Legend of Zelda" Breath of the Wild" have not confirmed the theory yet but Nintendo has previously hinted that the upcoming game would feature different weather and temperatures.

In related news, "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is also slated to introduce a bluer than usual Link. Forbes has revealed one of the latest concept images of Link. The image is not the first to have already been released by the firm as Link has also been seen in other garments and hues at the same time. The change of clothing for Link is not that of a shocker as the game is touted to be set in an open-world setup, and adaptation should be a hovering theme here.

As "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is set to transpire in Hyrule, a new Hyrule Encyclopedia is also slated to be released in February in Japan next year. Nintendo has also released "Hyrule Historia" and "Art & Artifacts" to coincide with their previous releases. "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is scheduled to hit the shelves in 2017. It will be released exclusively for Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
