Don’t mind if I do
On top of previewing the first DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild this evening, Nintendo also brought out a much-appreciated new update. Audio language options are here!
Tonight’s update will let you choose between nine languages — Japanese, English, French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Latin America), Italian, and Russian — “with a different language used for on-screen text by downloading a free software update,” per Nintendo.
If you’re playing Breath of the Wild on Wii U, you’ll need to grab the Voice Pack off the eShop. In either case, once your game is updated, you can find the new “Voice Language” choices at the bottom of the Options menu (which is accessible from the title screen, and also in-game when you pause).
I don’t find most of the English performances too terribly grating, but yeah, I’m gonna swap to Japanese.
