The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild carries on Hylian texts

Those mysterious glyphs actually spell words.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had a spectacular showing at E3, as people lined up at the show for hours just to get their hands on it. Those not at the show spent their time going over the game play videos released, dissecting everything ... even the Hylian language.

Nintendo as always had a version of Hyrule's written language in its Zelda games, and the next installment is no different, as the folks at Zelda Wikia and Zelda Universe have put together some images showing the translations and alphabet. The English and Japanese versions apparently have their own translations. User RagnarokX is credited with most of the work in making much of the language understandable.

It's good to see that Nintendo continues to have a sense of humor embedded in their game for those willing to do a little extra legwork for the Easter eggs. My favorite is the "Now loading, do not turn off your ..." and "All your base."
