New, 4 comments

With its 2017 release approaching, Nintendo is giving us yet another in-depth look at the much-anticipated Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. At the 2016 edition of the Game Awards tonight, the company showed some direct footage of the game in action, revealing a bit more of what it will be like to explore this new version of Hyrule. (Skip forward to 2:35 in the video above to get right to the game.)

Earlier, during the event’s pre-show, Nintendo also released a brief-yet-beautiful new trailer, showing off some of the locations through the world of Breath of the Wild, as well as a few of the creatures you’ll encounter and what could possibly be our first real look at Princess Zelda.

Breath of the Wild looks to be a big departure for the series, shifting the Zelda formula into a more modern open world. Originally slated to be a Wii U exclusive, the game will also be coming to Nintendo’s upcoming Switch platform when it launches next year.
