A save glitch exists that allows a player to exit the Shrine of Resurrection without the Sheikah Slate; without the Sheikah Slate, the player cannot warp and does not have a map but can use runes, control Divine Beasts and interact with terminals. Time is also stopped, preventing Blood Moons.
If the player desires to obtain the Sheikah Slate later, he/she can by returning to the Shrine of Resurrection.

Inside the game's files is a picture containing Link doing a pose next to Zelda. What's interesting about this is that Link's "Hero of the Wild" hat and tunic were changed in the final release. The length of the sleeve and cuffing were also shortened in the final version; it was rolled up slightly and thinner as seen in the photo. The gold trim on his hat was subdued green in the final release, likely because the 8-bit Link amiibo had a similar form.

Breath of the Wild started it's development in 2011 as an open world Zelda Game for the Wii U, originally planned to be released in 2015. The release was later delayed to 2016 after developers conceived of new gameplay options they wanted to include. This release date was then further delayed to 2017 so that it could be released simultaneously on Nintendo's next platform, the Nintendo Switch.

In shrines, after placing the Sheikah Slate to download runes, Hylian text begins to run down the stalactite above it. Portions of the text have been translated to read "NOW LOADING DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR" and "ALL YOUR BASE ARE". The latter phrase is a reference to Zero Wing, a 1989 game infamous for its horrible English dialogue that spawned the iconic phrase "All your base are belong to us".

According to Aonuma, the game was subtitled "Breath of the Wild" instead of being based on a character or an item because the development team wanted the title to reflect the nature and expansiveness of the world in the game.
