As early as now, fans are already looking forward to "Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild," which will be released on 2017. It's slated to be the biggest open-world RPG of 2017, and will closely follow on the heels of contemporaries "Witcher 3" and "Fallout 4." But will it be able to dethrone the two in terms of RPG and stand as the biggest title in the video game market for next year?

What to expect from 'Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild'

Firstly, fans should definitely expect major changes to "Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild," as it's poised to bring its stories to a more modern, open world, according to The Verge. Trailers for the game have already shown Link running, swimming, gliding and snowboarding across an expanded version of Hyrule.

Of course, while it's began to explore the outside world, the strength of "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" has always been in its offering of folklore and mythologies. As such, fans can almost certainly expect more of the magical wonderment that surrounds the franchise. Among the new features also include the Shrines of Trials, which plot the current landscape and are waiting to be discovered by the gamers.

When can fans expect 'Legend of Zelda: Breath of  Wild'

Currently, there are no official dates yet announced for "Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild," although it's been previously reported that it would be postponed until 2017 to allow the team to further improve the game's quality, according to Den of Geek. Despite that, fans can expect "Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild" to arrive on the Nintendo's upcoming Switch platform, apart from its original Wii U platform.
