A Hero ReturnsThe new Nintendo console brings back an old friend
Trenton Barnett, a Senior at St. Edward's University, has been looking forward to this day for a very long time. Not only has the new Nintendo console finally been released to the public, but 'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,' a game Trenton has been waiting nearly six years for, has finally arrived.
Accompanied by "Amiibo", a series of figurines containing wireless signals that interact with the game, Trenton has been enjoying every minute of this new adventure since he picked up the console the moment it was available: 12:01 AM on the morning of Friday, March 3rd.
"This game is incredible" says Barnett, "It may be a bit too early to tell, but so far this is my favorite Zelda game ever made". Trenton has put nearly 20 hours of playtime into the game, and he feels as if he is just scratching the surface of the game's sprawling open world.
"It helps that if I need to leave the apartment, I can simply pop the console out of its base and take it with me. I've never seen anything like it" Barnett said. "With a game as huge as Zelda, I can see this coming in handy. I couldn't be happier to be back in the world of Hyrule."
Collectibles and Art from the Zelda series sits on the shelf in Trenton Barnett's apartment. For Barnett and millions of other Zelda fans like him, this console is a portal to a whole new world. "I'm glad the wait is over" he said.
