Zelda: Breath of the Wild NES remake: What to expect in the latest version of the 8-bit game

The newest version of Breath of the NES brings gamers "better" graphics while still maintaining the 8-bit art. Also included in the update is an improvement to the physics engine. In addition to being able to use wind from the Korok Leaf and spread flames, you're now able to roll logs and damage enemies.

The update also brings a day and night cycle, similar to Breath of the Wild and the quick switching of items without needing to enter the pause menu. Check out the video below for gameplay and head to the YouTube page download links.
