Latest Update To Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Lets You Switch Voice Languages

One new trend that’s been going on in games is offering different voice languages outside of the countries that speak it. There’s a strong demand for having Japanese voices instead of English in markets outside of Japan, for instance. Final Fantasy XV included both Japanese and English voice options, and Persona 5 offered Japanese voice as a free DLC. Nintendo is also on board with the idea as seen in the latest update for Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

The 1.2.0 update enables option to select all nine supported languages-Japanese, English, French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Latin America), Italian, and Russian- for voices. Although the amount of spoken dialogue may not be as much in the game (this is the first mainline Zelda game to feature voiced characters), it is still a neat feature.

In addition, the text can also be changed into all of the supported languages as well. It will be updated automatically for those playing on the Switch, but for Wii U this is packaged as a “Voice Pack” DLC available for download on the eShop.

This should be great for fans that prefer the original Japanese voices rather than the English dub. Plus, if you’re curious of the folks in Hyrule sounds like in other languages, you can now experience it first-hand rather than requiring you to find an import copy.
