'Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild' Gets Two New Trailers
Nintendo graces fans with two new gameplay trailers for their upcoming 2017 title, "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" for the soon to be released Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U. The trailers were unveiled during the "Game Awards" 2016.
As reported by The Verge, during the "Game Awards" pre-show at the Microsoft Theater, Nintendo revealed one of the "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" trailers. The pre-show trailer showcased some of the game's locales were players can visit. The video also revealed some of the enemies that Link would be facing in the game. Some of the places seen looked like an autumn forest, a bridge extending across a lake near some cliff sides. The trailer also showed a glimpse of an outpost with a dragon-head fixture, and a quaint little town with some gardens. Other parts of the preview also had glimpses of what players suspect to be Zelda. The woman in the trailer seems to be wearing the same getup as the protagonist, which leads fans to speculate that she could be another playable character.
The second video was shown later in the event, it had "Nintendo Treehousers" Nate Bildhorff and Bill Trinen playing a short demo of "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." In the article by Time, the demo starts with Link meeting a bird-like character called Kass, who is described by the duo as "a minstrel who travels around Hyrule." The minstrel gives the player a clue on how to locate the temple in his quest. Multiple reptilian enemies were encountered by the players, and they pointed out each of the foe's attack patterns. The demo draws to an end when they defeat a certain enemy, which appears to be like a low-level boss.
The "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is speculated to be one of the launch titles for Nintendo's Switch platform. However, the game is apparently going to be released for their Wii U system as well. The expected release date is sometime in 2017.
