The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild just released a few days ago, but that hasn’t stopped players from searching for any secrets the game has hidden. One of the more interesting discoveries is the translation of a mysterious language contained within Breath of the Wild.
Reddit user sparkthedarkness shared some images showing a translation of the Sheikah language in the highly-praised Zelda title. Gamers have since taken the translated symbols and scoured the game for any place they can be used.
One gamer found that the Breath of the Wild special edition box features the looping phrase “The Hyrule Fantasy” in the Sheikah language. Others have pointed out that some of the signs in the dye shop feature Sheikah letters so there may be some useful translations there.
Gamers have also been using the translation to find the memories. Apparently each picture is labeled in the Shiekah language, so having the translation available can help players know where to travel for the memories. With such a large map for gamers to explore and enjoy, having the specific locations of each memory listed out can help gamers quickly locate each memory.
Reddit user James0x57 even created a game to help Breath of the Wild players learn the Skeikah language. Granted, most players may focus their time on searching out the Master Sword, but there will surely be those who take the time to learn the Sheikah language.
Now that the mystery of the Sheikah language has been solved, there will undoubtedly be many gamers searching for any hidden Sheikah text in Breath of the Wild. Gamers are especially interested in any Easter Eggs that may be revealed or uncovered via translating Sheikah phrases. The translation has only been available for a couple days, so it’s likely new discoveries about the language will arrive in the coming days and weeks.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
