While Masahiro Sakurai works for Nintendo, that doesn’t mean he avoids games produced by other developers. In his recent Famitsu column, the Kirby creator discussed the differences between Breath of the Wild and the PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn. While he seems incredibly positive about both games, it’s interesting to see him classing Horizon Zero Dawn as “stress free” and Zelda as “tiresome”. Check out the full list of differences translated by Source Gaming here.
A week before writing this column, two wonderfully outstanding works were released and I was torn between how to spend my time. Horizon Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. By all means, play them both because they really are masterpieces.
With that being said, I am surprised by the fact that although there are aspects that are very close, there are other aspects that are very different.
Overall, Horizon is more stress free and Zelda is becoming a tiresome routine. However, if you’ve played Zelda, you probably understand this well: the chores of Zelda are the most fun part!
