The History of Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is nearly upon us. Hyrule is in danger once again and in mere days we will set out to find the Master Sword, aid Zelda, and defeat Calamity Ganon.

It has been a long, winding journey just to get to the game’s launch on March 3, 2017 though. Zelda fans love timelines, so I thought it would be worthwhile and interesting to look back at the history of the development of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is easy to forget where a game has come from and exactly what it took to get to a launch.

Breath of the Wild mirrors The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess by launching across two game systems and promises to be the largest Zelda game to date. Since hindsight is 20/20, let’s take a look back and see how Nintendo’s foray into open world game design came to be. Continue reading “The History of Breath of the Wild”

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Review

Originally published on PlayStation Wire on February 10, 2017. PlayStation Wire is no longer active, so I have republished the review here for myself. If you would like to see the original post, check out the Web Archive.


Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (a name that makes absolute perfect sense, I swear) is a look at the foundation on which Kingdom Hearts 3 will be built. The culmination of the portable titles, a narrative gap lost in the shuffle of apps, and a brand new chapter come together to mark the cornerstones of the Disney-filled JRPG that will be Kingdom Hearts 3.

It has been a whopping 11 years since a proper numbered Kingdom Hearts game was released, with each spin-off tale in the interim weaving a more detailed tapestry that will be culminated with Kingdom Hearts 3. My patience —and exasperation— with the series’ seemingly endless amount of titles not called “Kingdom Hearts 3” is well documented. I can’t be too ungrateful though – my favorite title in the series, Birth by Sleep, was born out of these spin-off portable titles.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue marks the final portable title being ported to console, with the 3DS entry Dream Drop Distance heading to the PlayStation 4, fully upscaled in 1080p 60fps. This collection also features HD cutscenes of a new narrative based on the mobile game, Kingdom Hearts Unchained X. Finally, rounding out the bundle is the brand new content – brace yourselves – Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-. As fans wait with bated breath for the true next installment, this latest collection offers a glimpse at Kingdom Hearts 3 and boy-o does it look swell.
