"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is set to launch in 2017. A new gameplay trailer recently launched, showing the main protagonist Link on a snowboarding adventure.

GameRant revealed that "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is one of the most anticipated games of 2017, which will launch on the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. "Breath of the Wild" is the latest addition to the beloved series, and is expected to become available early next year, although there are talks that the release date has been postponed to summer 2017.

The game has been in development for years, but Nintendo promises that the new version of "The Legend of Zelda" will not disappoint. In the gameplay video of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," Link was traversing the snowy mountains, using his shield as a snowboard.

The snowy adventure will most likely be a part of the game, although Link can also travel via his horse and on foot. "The Legend of Zelda" fans saw how Link can use his sword to maneuver his way while gliding over the white terrain.

Techno Buffalo stated that Link was initially standing on top of a huge mountain with a view of the Breath of the Wild landscape. The hero proceeded to step onto his shield to ride down the snow-covered slops. Link dodged back and forth, and even did a few extreme moves along the way.

There were some views of the ocean, although his destination remained uncertain. At the bottom of the mountain in "The Legend of Zelda" trailer, Link puts his shield on his back again to continue his mission.

Aside from snowboarding in "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," Link will most likely get to use a type of hang glider. In an earlier video, the character moved down a mountain and then pulled out his shield to snowboard when he gets near the ice.

It is not the first time that Link snowboarded in "The Legend of Zelda." He previously did the same in "Twilight Princess," although he did not use his shield as a snowboard at the time. More updates and details on "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" are expected soon.
