The recently detailed DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn’t the only noteworthy addition to Nintendo’s mega-hit. An update just rolled out by the company adds what many fans have been requesting for quite some time.
As of now, you can play and read The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in any language that you choose. Before, it was only possible to read the subtitles that matched the spoken dialogue, and players were unable to mix and match languages. This update fixes that, allowing, for example, for Japanese voices to be played with English subtitles.
Because, honestly, that’s the real story here. Other languages include French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain), and Spanish (Latin America).
Do voices matter in Breath of the Wild?
In all the time I’ve spent bobbing around in this new Hyrule, I’m stumbled on only a few cutscenes here and there, and none have made me wish I was listening to the game in another language. It’s a very visual game, where the gameplay and graphics do far more talking than the actual characters do.
I can get why some fans would want to play it in Japanese, but it makes no difference to me in this tale.
Those with the Wii U version will have to download it manually, but the Switch version rolls out automatically. Check it out today.
