See how each version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild measures up for speedrunning

Wii U and German wins out

After nearly a month of play, speedrunners have figured out which version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild they like best — German language on Wii U.

This video from dragonbane shows that just like Twilight Princess, the German version is preferred for speedruns as it’s slightly faster. You can see plainly in the video that the German intro ends quicker, followed by French, with English at the very tail end of the equation. By playing it on Wii U in German you’ll shave 41 seconds off your time in total.

Can’t wait to see this at an AGDQ eventually — hopefully in race form with multiple players!
