Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Map is Slightly Smaller than Xenoblade Chronicles X

Nintendo formally revealed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild during a special livestream for E3 2016. Quite a lot of footage has been shown off, highlighting the dozens of new mechanics that the new game has to offer.

During the playable demo, the full map of the game was revealed. The folks over at Eggplante have crunched some numbers, and have come to the conclusion that the full size of Breath of the Wild’s map is roughly 360 square kilometers (140 square miles). This means that the new Zelda‘s map is just a tad smaller than that of Xenoblade Chronicles X, which has a map size of 154.44 square miles. It was revealed earlier that Breath of the Wild is 12 times bigger than Twilight Princess. So with all things said, the new Zelda is huge!
