On this week’s The Drill Down podcast, Russia unplugs from the internet, Nintendo gives us more to switch for, President Trump supports artificial intelligence, Amazon looks for a new HQ, Jeff Bezos exposes Pecker … and much, much more.
When we were first introduced to Nintendo’s latest console, Nintendo Switch, last October, one game shown playing on the system surprised many: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
If you’re a fan of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series and always wished you could play one of those games that looked more like Skyrim, now you’ll be able to make that fantasy a reality. During Bethesda’s E3 2017 showcase last night, a trailer for Skyrim on Switch was shared. And in it, the player was able to become Link from the Zelda series and set off on the many adventures one can find in the game.
Nintendo has released a trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, their biggest Zelda game yet with a massive open world to explore, for E3 2016. We first saw how the game looked back in 2014 at The Game Awards, and again later on that same year for E3 2014.

The Legend of Zelda became an early hit on the Nintendo Entertainment System back in the mid 80’s. Since then, Nintendo has made about 20 games featuring the heroic Link as he battles to save Princess Zelda and the realm of Hyrule. Now, it seems a live-action series adaptation of the famed video game franchise could be coming to Netflix, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The series is reportedly in the early stages of development at Netflix, who’s working closely with Nintendo and looking for writers, with the aim of making it a family friendly Game of Thrones-like series. With plenty of swords, shields, princesses, and evil sorcerers, it’s not too big of a stretch to see why that world might work for that plan.
