Zelda Breath of the Wild: this mysterious message finally translated by the fans


The output of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke with the traditions of the series Zelda. Exit the linear format, make way for freedom in a huge open world. But it is important to note that Breath of the Wild remains committed to all the elements that made the success of the Nintendo franchise. The game is full of easter eggs that players have been eager to spot.

A reference to the origin of the franchise

Today, we invite you to discover a recently discovered reference in the game, a reference full of nostalgia. But first of all, remember: Sheikahs are an ancient Hylian race first heard of in Ocarina of Time and who has repeatedly come to the aid of the citizens of Hyrule. In Breath of the Wild, the Sheikahs play an important role in helping Link in his quest. One of the most important objects is certainly the Sheikah tablet, which helps Link during his adventures.

Sheikahs also have their own runic script, which appears throughout the game. Very soon after the game is released, the fans managed to decipher it. Here is an example:

Players come from elsewhere, on this subject, to spot a nice easter egg, located in the very mechanics of the slate. When they open their card from their tablet, players can place up to five beacons to mark points of interest, or plan goals. These beacons are not visible to the naked eye, but by launching the Sheikah slate viewing function, the beacons then appear in the form of luminous pillars, on which a text in Sheikah writing scrolls.

Thanks to the translation of the text, we can discover a reference to the very first Zelda game released in 1986 on the NES. Indeed, the scrolling text can be translated as: “It is dangerous to go alone“.

It is the cult phrase from the franchise’s first opus when Link receives a sword from the hands of a mysterious old man. He then said to him: “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this“. This phrase has become, over time, an emblematic reference of Zelda. We can only applaud Nintendo’s desire to please fans of the franchise wearing an extreme pay attention to this type of detail, as well as’to the references for the first titles of the saga.
