The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been out for nearly two months at this point, and the game is still receiving updates on a regular basis from Nintendo. The latest update doesn’t add any significant new gameplay content to the critically-acclaimed open world game, but it does give players the chance to choose between nine different audio languages.
In update 1.2 for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is available to download now for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game, players can choose between the following languages: English, French, French-Canadian, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish (Spain and Latin America). Essentially, this allows people to experience Breath of the Wild‘s voice acting in any language they want, regardless of which version of the game they own.
Some people enjoy having the opportunity to check out how characters sound when played by different voice actors, so they’ll likely appreciate this new update. In fact, there are some people that prefer to play a game in the language of its country of origin, which would be Japanese in the case of Breath of the Wild.
Others would rather play through a game in their native tongue and not bother with alternate audio options. Regardless, though, update 1.2 is a welcome update that gives players more audio options than they had before. Those anxious for more substantial updates to Breath of the Wild will just have to wait until the summertime.
In the summer, Nintendo plans on releasing the first DLC pack for Breath of the Wild, which promises to add significant content to the game. Breath of the Wild‘s first DLC is expected to add new armor based on past Zelda games, a hard mode, a horde mode, and other new features. Those that have already had their fill in Hyrule may very well be convinced to return to the game once this DLC releases if they aren’t tempted to play through with different audio.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
