The Legend of Zelda


 

Anyone looking for the quickest way to get around the world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild need only look as far as the nearest boulder.

Breath of the Wild speedrunner Venick discovered this travel method and posted a video exhibiting the process to his Twitter account. After priming the boulder with a Stasis power and a charged hammer attack, Link jumps on board the rock and lets it fly. This method was likely one practice that helped Venick achieve his self-proclaimed speedrun record of one hour, five minutes, and just over 17 seconds.

Luckily, this maneuver wasn’t one of the several features cut from the game prior to release.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is currently available on the recently launched Nintendo Switch, both of which are smashing sales records like pots. The game can also be picked up for the Wii U.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808
