Bet The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sounds even better in Russian.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has received a small update unlocking new audio options.

Nintendo hid this news away in a press release detailing Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s first DLC pack, but if you grab the patch on Switch (or download the Voice Pack DLC on Wii U), you can choose to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild with whatever combination of subtitles and audio you like.

That means, yes, the original Japanese audio with English dub is available – something we’re always pleased to see – but you can also choose from two kinds of French, two kinds of Spanish, Italian and Russian.

Around the time Nintendo revealed the release date it showed a Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer (the one in which Zelda does a lot of crying), and someone put together a supercut of all the different languages, showing off the differences between available languages. It was pretty cool, but now you can experience it whenever you fancy via the settings menu.

It’s always interesting to hear the slightly different interpretations brought to a game by different actors and localisation directors, so if you’re looking for something new from Zelda: Breath of the Wild, be sure to check it out.
