Just announced at Nintendo E3, the new Zelda game will be called Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Link takes to his new adventure with a variety of new hunting tools and skills, such as a spear and a serrated blade. The world looks incredibly responsive, with Link shoving a boulder over a cliff to crush enemies below.
Link is also shown wearing what appears to be a suit of mail armor as he stares down a beast made of rock in addition to his default outfit. Also shown are activities such as fishing, chopping down a tree to make a bridge, freezing a block of water, cooking, and hunting game with a bow and arrow. Link can even start a brushfire.
Story and dungeon elements were not shown in the previewBut it’s clear from the trailer that this will be a Zelda game unlike any other before it featuring a level of freedom and exploration fans have been yearning for. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild arrives next year on Wii U and NX.
