The Legend of Zelda


 

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has just gotten a major audio update.

A new voice pack, which will automatically be patched in to the Switch version of the game, lets players choose from any of the Nintendo Switch’s nine languages for the game’s audio. Wii U players can download the patch for free from the Nintendo eShop. Supported languages include English, French (standard and Canadian), German, Italian, Spanish (Spain and Latin America), Russian, and Japanese.

The audio is decoupled from the subtitles, so this means that players can, for example, hear Japanese audio with English subtitles. For fans who weren’t impressed with the game’s English voice acting, this is a huge quality of life improvement.

The patch was announced alongside Nintendo’s full reveal of the game’s first DLC. While that expansion won’t be out until this summer, the voice pack can be downloaded for free immediately.
