Its an Open world action adventure game with tiny RPG elements. People comparing the witcher/Horizon to this game is slightly redundant as both games go for totally different things.

I'm gonna be that dude.

Yes it is.

By the very definition of RPG (role playing game), BotW is one. You assume the role of Link, and you play through the game. Now, is it what the gaming community consider an RPG in terms of leveling, experience, and such? Not as much. You still increase your stats through gear and you sort of level your health and stamina, but it's not as in depth as a major RPG.

According to Nintendo's Wii U eShop description

...first Zelda Open-Air RPG...

So, um...what do we do if Nintendo says it, and nobody agrees?

Technically, all games are RPGs because you assume a role. BotW has more elements associated with classic RPGs than just that, however.
