Here’s the trailer for the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The game was revealed via Nintendo’s Treehouse Live stream, which was broadcast from their booth at E3 2016.
We’ll be bringing you hands-on impressions of the game from E3, but first impressions are extremely positive.
As the name suggests, the world of Hyrule feels alive and teeming with life, from cute little ducks to wild deer and soaring eagles. Elsewhere, we see Link rolling boulders, cutting down trees, rock climbing, swimming and gliding down from a cliff top. There’s a real sense of verticality.
Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, introduced the trailer, saying, “This is easily one of the biggest experiences ever created by Nintendo.”
It certainly looks that way.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be released on Wii U and Nintendo NX in 2017.
