The OST was composed by Koji Kondo This is remix of a song entitled “Main Theme’ from Legend of Zelda. I’m doing a Legend of Zelda month due to Breath of the Wild coming out! Who’s excited for Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and the Breath of the Wild OST?
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U video game consoles. It is the 19th release in the main The Legend of Zelda series. The story is set in Hyrule and follows amnesiac protagonist Link, who awakens from a 100-year slumber to a mysterious voice that guides him to defeat Calamity Ganon.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild departs from most games in the The Legend of Zelda series, as it features an open-world environment twelve times larger than the overworld in Twilight Princess, with less emphasis on defined entrances and exits to areas. Similar to the original The Legend of Zelda, the player is placed into the game’s world with very little instruction, and is allowed to explore freely at their own pace.
Players control Link, who can jump and climb almost any surface, and can find various items in the world, including weapons, shields, clothing, and food that can be eaten or cooked to restore health. Weapons break after excessive use, but many have multiple uses; for example, tree branches can be used to light fires, and shields can be used as makeshift snowboards. Throughout the game, Link possesses a piece of technology known as the Sheikah Slate, which provides players with a map and allows Link to create waypoints and investigate enemy stats. By discovering various runes, the Slate can be upgraded with various powers, including creating bombs, controlling magnetic objects, and stopping time around objects and enemies. Players keep track of both main and side quests given to them through the use of a quest log, which is called an Adventure Log within the game. If the player fulfills certain conditions, they are able to unlock an alternative ending of the game.
In the distant past, the many races of Hyrule lived together in harmony, the Sheikah’s blue aura providing life to the land, and everyone benefited from the Sheikah’s advanced technology. That all ended when a beast that came to be known as Calamity Ganon appeared. 10,000 years later, after having reverted to a medieval state, the kingdom of Hyrule rediscovered the ancient technology left behind by their ancestors through excavation. Upon reading the prophecies their ancestors had left behind, they learned that Calamity Ganon would return, and that Hyrule would require the mechanical Guardians and Divine Beasts to stop it. Key members of Hyrule’s various races were assembled to pilot these ancient machines and given the name pilot Champions. The Hero, the Princess, and the Champions attempted to stop the evil, but ultimately failed. The Calamity Ganon had turned the Guardians and Divine Beasts against the kingdom of Hyrule, causing it to collapse. The Hero was gravely wounded and taken to the Shrine of Resurrection. The Princess then used the last of her power and managed to temporarily seal Calamity Ganon inside Hyrule Castle.
In the present, 100 years later, an amnesiac Link awakens from a deep sleep as a mysterious female voice guides him to the now ruined kingdom of Hyrule. He meets an old man and learns that Calamity Ganon has been sealed in Hyrule Castle for one hundred years. Although trapped, Calamity Ganon has continued to grow in power, and Link must defeat it before it breaks free and destroys the world.
