The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Nintendo kicked off their E3 show with a first look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer. Travel across fields, through forests and to mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule in this stunning open-air adventure.
the gameplay is clearly the most important element of this reveal, as we see Link running, riding, gliding and climbing all over Hyrule. It’s not clear if Nintendo is basically making Zelda/Tomb Raider/ Monster Hunter/ Assassin’s Creed, but it looks like Breath of the Wild is going to focus heavily on exploration and traversal.
Breath of the Wild is slated to arrive sometime next year and apparently will be playable on Nintendo’s Wii U and Nintendo’s mysterious new NX console.

Check out some of the gameplay too:
“Breath of the Wild begins with a female voice commanding Link to wake from his slumber – a sleep he has remained in for 100 years. The voice appears to originate from within Hyrule Castle, which has fallen under the thrall of Ganondorf once again, although the darkness appears to be contained there. There’s nothing to suggest the voice belongs to anyone other than Zelda (despite those rumours of a female Link), but the demo goes no further in providing any context. For reference, no other character in the demo speaks out loud (Link, once again, remains silent) but Nintendo hinted this balance of voiced major characters and text-based dialogue for more minor NPCs would continue throughout the game.
Exactly where this entry fits into the wider Zelda timeline (because, obviously this matters) is also unclear, although Aonuma hinted there were clues in the state of the particular version of Hyrule shown. Once a beautiful kingdom, it has now fallen into ruin. There’s a melancholic edge here, born out through the game’s moody piano score, even despite its outwardly bright colour palette. Even the Master Sword is rusted with age and nicked with damage. But amongst all the changes, there are clues that this is still a Hyrule which players have already visited. Ancient technology of the type seen in Skyward Sword covers the land, half buried by the ages, and there are references to the Goddess Hylia. From Ocarina of Time and other games, The Temple of Time once again makes an appearance, while the Sheikah appear to be a key part of the game’s history. Wind Waker’s Korok race is back. And then from Twilight Princess, the Bridge of Eldin, an iconic location also recreated in the Smash Bros. series, still stands – just about.”
