After defeating Calamity Ganon, you will be able to see the completion rate at the bottom-left part of the map. For you to achieve a completion rate of 100%, you need to find all the Koroks, locate all the shrines, and display all of the places' names on the map by discovering each area.

Find all Koroks

Found a Korok

This is no easy task as there are a total of 900 Koroks to find! These spirits with leaves on their faces wants you to find all of them by solving puzzles or completing challenges.

Koroks give Korok Seeds after they are found which can then be given to Hestu to increase your maximum inventory slot for either weapon, shield, or bow.

There are a total of 120 Shrines to be located. Completing shrine challenges reward Link with Spirit Orbs which are used to increase his maximum hearts and stamina.

Is There a New Game Plus?

No New Game Plus

There are no options for creating a New Game+ in Breath of the Wild. You can only have one save file per profile and if you want to create another one, either you overwrite your previous save, or start a new game in another profile.
