A long time ago, Ganondorf was defeated. His soul cuts into four fragments. The three fragments were sealed in different time periods, but the fourth fragment was in the Master Sword. He plotted his resurrection a sorceress named Cia. She was the protector the balance of the Triforce. However, she was blinded by the power in the spirit of the Hero of Legend. She opened the Gate of Souls. This was a portal of different time-space realities of the Hyrule. Together with her subordinates, she declared a great war against Princess Zelda and the Hyrulean army.


This game includes the Legend Mode, Cia’s Tale, Linkle’s Tale, and the Saga of the Great Sea. The characters will fight on a large scale of enemies and generals on the battlefield. This will be the most combat-intensive Zelda game ever! This also includes the map and the mission in the first two games with 29 characters to choose from. You can enjoy the costumes of Link and Princess Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild.
