It's safe to say that, at this point, Nintendo has given us all "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" fever with its constant stream of updates. Recently released are two trailers, which cover some of the game's narrative setting and more in-depth gameplay. There's just one question, though: what happened to the once majestic Hyrule?

"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" - "Life In The Ruins"

This week's Game Awards 2016 gave a glimpse of anew jungle area and the first story-related trailer for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." In the trailer "Life in the Ruins," we see what appears to Hyrule in its full glory, only to be demolished and then transformed into the broken world.

The trailer is a potential giveaway to "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's" plot and setting. What we could only assume for now, is that the game begins in the jovial, modern Hyrule all Zelda fans know, until something (or someone) decimates the world. There is a scene in which Link appears to be crestfallen, as he kneels next to Princess Zelda, presumably.

More Details On "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild"

Of course, the entirety of the gameplay won't be seen until a Nintendo Switch or a Wii U is on hand. However, all these clues make "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" more anticipating than it already is, with fans saying that there are so many reasons to buy it.

TechnoBuffalo has compiled some pretty cool observations regarding "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" gameplay. Something to look forward to are some bird creatures seen on both clips.

Polygon also reports of the appearance of a yet unnamed dog in "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." It appears that Zelda gamers are mostly made of dog-lovers, as seen on their hilarious Twitter reactions.

What's next for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" remains to be seen until its release come 2017. If you don't own a Wii U, do yourself a favor and grab a Nintendo Switch when it's out.
