When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s trailer was initially revealed, many fans were shocked to hear voice acting in a Zelda game, and many wondered what the extent of the voice acting would be. In a recent interview with Gamekult, series producer Eiji Aonuma explained that every cutscene in Breath of the Wild will feature full voice acting. Despite the huge amount of voice acting, though, players will only be able to listen to Breath of the Wild in their native language. Unlike other games that feature a dual audio option (English and Japanese), the latest Zelda game will not have that feature implemented.

If you wanted to have your audio in Japanese, you would have to change the Nintendo Switch’s system settings to Japanese, which would also alter the in-game text. While the lack of dual audio may be a bummer, I’m still excited to hear the voice acting in
Breath of the Wild. Share your own thoughts on the matter in the comments below!
