Xbox praises The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It’s been about five years since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released with Nintendo Switch, and the game has been well received during that time. At this point, it would be more rare to find someone who wouldn’t say anything kind about the game, but BotW is now receiving strong praise from unlikely sources: the official Xbox Twitter account! Today, Xbox asked its followers to name a game that “feels like they’re at home.” One answer mentioned Breath of the Wild, and the Xbox account surprised fans with kind words about the game.

“BotW offers such a relaxing sandbox experience (sometimes interrupted by a laser of death),” Xbox replied on Twitter.

Not surprisingly, many fans were surprised to see that the official Xbox account responded with such praise, not to mention the response at all. Many shared gratitude for the reaction, and one fan even joked that Nintendo should be quoted in the next trailer for the game. The other calls Xbox and Nintendo the “cutest couple.” This shows how well the two companies have worked together in the last few years.

Of course, it’s okay that the Xbox statement about Breath of the Wild is accurate! If players avoid the aforementioned Death Laser, the game provides a truly relaxing sandbox experience. The sequel to the game is set to be released on Switch sometime in 2022, so it’s interesting to see if Nintendo can manage to capture why the previous game was special. Five years later, it’s clear that Breath of the Wild has become one of the most beloved experiences in The Legend of Zelda. As a result, Nintendo will obviously cut back on that job. Hopefully the sequel can get a similar level of praise!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is only available on Nintendo Switch.
