At long last, Nintendo lifted the veil from our eyes and gave as a gorgeous trailer as well as a title: Legend of Zelda Breath Of the Wild. The trailer demonstrated the utterly huge, diverse and alive world that Link will be exploring in the game. Furthermore, voice acting seems confirmed as there is a voice over in the trailer and it also showcased the different things Link will be doing such as cooking, crafting, hunting and of course fighting and combat has been revamped so that you can use weapons dropped by your enemies and weapons will have limited durability and will break with over use. Nintendo also game us live gameplay of the opening moments of the game where Link wakes up (as usual) after having been asleep for 100 years and demonstrated just how open the world is and exploration is rewarded as items and secrets are via exploration. Nintendo’s showing more demo’s from the treehouse all day long.
The upcoming Legend of Zelda game is one of the most anticipated games awaiting release. Originally slated for a 2015 release the game is still in development and as of now it is still not expected to hit your consoles until 2017. The game will be hitting both the current gen Wii U and the new Nintendo console code named ‘NX’ and it’s rumoured to be a day one game alongside the newest Nintendo console.
The Legend of Zelda Wii U will be the nineteenth installment in the Zelda franchise and the first in the original series to be developed in HD. The game world will be the largest out of all the previous games with the player able to decide their own destination and how to get there, whether it be on foot or Link’s horse Epona.

With still no release date set in stone, it looks as if you will have to keep your ears open for future Nintendo Directs for more information.
