A trailer depicting scenes from the video game was released by the company at the E3 trade show... depicting first examples of the huge open world gamers can visit, and then some of the movies and abilities for main character Link, and then some of the creatures he can battle on his epic journey.
First created in 1987 (The Legend of Zelda, d'uh), I was late to the game, first playing the 1998 release The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It was magical. It was also the first 3D game of the series.
It is currently the highest rated video game of all time and has sold over seven million copies on the Nintendo 64 game system alone. Is it wrong for me to still own that game system? Honestly... I do thrown things out or trade them in...
It was one of my favorite games of all time (The Ultima games - Lord British rules!— and Final Fantasy games, are ahead of it in my book)... but after seeing the trailer... this game might be moving up to the top of the list.
Nintendo says that world gamers can explore on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is 12x larger that the world from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, a Zelda game that was released back in 2006.
The official description reads: “Step into a world of discovery, exploration and adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a boundary-breaking new game in the acclaimed series. Travel across fields, through forests and to mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule in this stunning open-air adventure.”
So... if I am finally late posting a blog sometime in 2017, you'll know why... of course that means I'll have to get a Nintendo game system of some sort. Damn.
Anyhow... should you really be a fan... check out the video below featuring 56 minutes of game play from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind:
