The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild departs from the previous Zelda formula with the scale and depth of its world. You walk, fly, ride and climb your way through a landscape that varies in climate, terrain, inhabitants and vegetation. Weather and the passage of the sun and moon extend the deep encounter with the fantastical world, but it’s the sense of history in the dilapidated buildings and long-untouched wilds that draw you in. You must work with the land, foraging for food, scaling snow-covered mountains and searching for shade in scalding deserts to continue your quest to uncover its history and restore balance.

This is a magical world that exists not only as a backdrop for adventure but as a living, breathing environment that must be negotiated as intelligently and carefully as any monster you fight.

Good to know

Insights to ensure your child's gaming experience remains safe and enjoyable

Internet Matters Recommends

Consider time investment

Adventure games often take a long time to finish. Encourage regular breaks to get moving, rest their eyes and balance their time with other activities.

Nurture key skills

Many adventure games incorporate problem solving and critical thinking, important skills for school, work and more offline. Talk to them about their game to see how it supports them and their goals.

Build resilience

Encourage children to take risks with their characters in-game to safely learn potential consequences. Talk about what might happen outside of the game and why it's important to keep those risks in-game only. While playing, encourage them to think about innovative risks their character can take.

Skill level

Suggested by Family Gaming Database

Although younger children can enjoy exploring the world, to really play on your own you need combat, navigation and planning skills.

Content rating


Rated PEGI 12 for depictions of non-realistic-looking violence towards human-like or animal-like characters. During scenes of violence, bright lights are shown on impact of attacks. When the player character Link takes damage he flashes orange, and he continues to repeatedly flash red when running very low on health. Some attacks can knock him to the floor for a short time, but he quickly gets up and carries on fighting. When he is defeated he falls down to the floor and the screen reads ‘game over’, there are no visible injuries on his body.
