Zelda: Breath Of The Wild - All The Memory Locations
Look At This Photograph
In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can discover special cutscenes called Captured Memories. These scenes are triggered when you reach specific locations that correspond to photographs in your Sheikah Slate's album. Finding these memories is difficult, as it requires an intimate knowledge of the world. To help you obtain and find all the memories, we've compiled a guide with details on the locations of all 12.
Breath of the Wild is out now as a launch title for the Nintendo Switch; the game also arrives for Wii U on the same day. And even after you finish the game, there'll be more to play: Nintendo has announced a $20 DLC Pass for Breath of the Wild.

We recommend pursuing this memory after you've acquired at least a few heart containers in order to improve your chances of survival.
