    In a recent interview with IGN Portugal, Eiji Anouma revealed an interesting feature of the upcoming Zelda title; the game will have an alternate ending.

    "There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending," Aonuma revealed to IGN Portugal.

    The article also points to their upcoming full interview with Mr Anouma where he confirms, among other features, the presence of Link's legendary companion Epona and introduces the golf-style mini-game that uses an item called Stasis Rune.

    Breath of the Wild seems to be a very ambitious title after each and every little detail reveal! I bet a lot of you are hoping that it lives up to the expectation!

    That's cool. Is this the first Zelda game to actually have different endings? Or could get a one or two in the other games? I honestly cant remember.

    Link's Awakening had a (slightly) different ending if you finished the game without dying.

    Wow, something that hasn't never be done before! Incredible! :glare:
    You know, I think it would've been better keep it a surprise, instead of announcing it like it's a game changer or something.

    Yeah, but they could make it a bit more dramatic, like how Ganon kills Link and rules over the world with Zelda as his sex slave in his dungeon. Or something :tpi:

    Now I hope they add an alternate story where you play as Ganondorf and conquer Hyrule. Maybe like a prequel to the main story of the game.
    Like, the best part of Hyrule Warriors was playing as Ganondorf. Do it, Nintendo!:angry:

    Do we actually know the timeline of this game? There is a timeline where Link lost to Ganon. Maybe this is a game that directly follows this timeline, with Zelda crying and all.

    Gambia, The
    Maybe it's a summary like in Witcher 3 but with Links achievements for the people of Hyrule (mainly sidequests)
    instead of decisions made during the story missions.

    I'm very hyped for the game, but I will be satisfied as long as it's better than
    "The Legend of Zelda : The Faces of Evil" or "The Legend of Zelda : The Staff of Gamelon" :rofl2:

    oh i see.

    The normal ending you have to either decide to save the Wii U world which is doomed anyway


    alternate ending is a switch world which might be doomed from the ridiculous rupees but has a chance if you get some decent 3rd party support.

    nothing much
    In the DX version, you get a portrait of Marin, and then a seagull flies by, followed by a "thank you" message from the developers.

    That clickbait in the front page though.

    ""There is an alternate ending if you meet..."
    Meet who?
    "...certain criteria."
    Oh.

    Majora's Mask technically had three endings if I recall correctly. If you let time run out, the moon would crash into Termina, and if you don't get all the masks you can't become the Fierce Diety (don't know if that could technically be counted as an alternate ending, but there's more story revealed about the Skull Kid because of it)
