The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Trailer Revealed, Link Now Cooks To Live!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Trailer Revealed, Link Now Cooks To Live!

Finally, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U and NX has a title, and it’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo showed the first gameplay details of the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild today as part of the company’s E3 2016 presentations. And like what the title connotes, Link is growing wild!

According to Venture Beat, the game’s new features include Link cooking food for sustenance and maneuvering the environment. The new Link has a stamina gauge, can jump as well as climb walls. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link will not rely on hearts to live because he can’t find them anywhere. He needs to catch food, cook and eat it to regain his energy.

Unlike the previous Zelda games, weapons in the new game work differently. Link can use enemy weapons like he did in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Link can now burn bushes using a torch from a tree branch and chop down trees with a Woodcutter axe to create firewood. However, the weapons can also be destroyed.

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the focus is more on technology instead of magic, wrote BBC. Nintendo only showed the online clips of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the Nintendo Treehouse livestream and the playable demos of the Wii U version at E3 2016, no NX at all. Below is the trailer of the upcoming Zelda game.

 

If you noticed in the trailer, Link is right-handed. GameSpot reported that game producer Eiji Aonuma explained why Link switched from being a lefty into right-handed.

"In terms of right-handedness of things, when we think about which hand Link is going to use, we think about the control scheme. With the gamepad, the buttons you'll be using to swing the sword are on the right side, and thus he's right-handed."

On why there is no female Link as fans speculated in the past, Aunoma told Kotaku that Link “was always planned to be a guy” since its 2014 trailer reveal.

“You know there’s the idea of the Triforce in the Zelda games we make,” Aunoma said.

“The Triforce is made up of Princess Zelda, Ganon and Link. Princess Zelda is obviously female. If we made Link a female we thought that would mess with the balance of the Triforce. That’s why we decided not to do it.”

When asked by a GameSpot reporter on the topic, Aunoma admitted that Nintendo had thought of satisfying fans’ desire for a female lead character by making Princess Zelda take a lead role in the Zelda game.  But it did not push through because according to Aunoma, “if we have princess Zelda as the main character who fights, then what is Link going to do? Taking into account that, and also the idea of the balance of the Triforce, we thought it best to come back to this [original] makeup.”

 

So there you have it folks, no female Link in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Wii U and NX versions!

This announcement is a welcome improvement to Nintendo’s previous plan of just focusing the E3 presentation on The Legend of Zelda Wii U. Although the publisher also announced previously that the game can be played earlier in their Nintendo Store in New York, the fans are still hoping that Nintendo will feature more upcoming titles in the E3 this June.

The Legend Of Zelda: 3 New Things To Look Forward To

The Legend Of Zelda: 3 New Things To Look Forward To

The release of The Legend of Zelda for Wii U was moved to 2017. This is already old news yet some fans are not still over their disappointment on the game not making it this 2016. Though Nintendo tried to appease fans by confirming that the game will be the main focus of their E3 pre-show this June 14th, fans are still wishing that they would reveal the game’s title at least, or show something that will get them excited for The Legend of Zelda this year.

Wish granted guys! You have now 3 new things to look forward to from this year onward! A Nintendo movie, Zelda trading cards, and additional Zelda game for Nintendo Selects!

Are you interested to know more? Then… read on!

#1 Nintendo plans to release a movie soon.

This is the announcement made by the creator of the famous game series such as "The Legend of Zelda" and "Super Mario Bros." This plan to move from interactive media to visual media is a surprising development for Nintendo, wrote MNR Daily.

Tatsumi Kimishima, president of Nintendo, revealed during his interview with Japan-based publication Asahi Shimbun, some small details regarding the plan to enter the movie industry. When asked about the possible time frame for the company’s first movie, Kimishima’s reply translated by NeoGAF user GSR said:

"While I can't say a particular year, we are in specific talks at the moment. Of course we'd like to make use of any income from this year, but I can't say we're pushing it to something five years out. I'd like to make something happen before that.”

The first film was not yet announced but Nintendo already confirmed that Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of "The Legend of Zelda" will be included in the upcoming project.

Does this mean that "The Legend of Zelda" might be the first game to be turned into a movie by Nintendo?

#2 The Legend of Zelda trading cards to launch in Australia.

The Legend of Zelda game series already have its trading cards which will be released on June 30, 2016. The cards were first revealed at the New York Comic-Con, and as of now, they are now available for pre-order on the Australian website of EB Game.

The trading cards costs $6 per pack and includes a decal/tattoo and 6 cards.

Nintendo Moves Zelda Wii U To 2017, Confirms NX Version

Nintendo Moves Zelda Wii U To 2017, Confirms NX Version

Zelda Wii U is not coming this 2016. Nintendo announced today through its official Japanese Twitter account that the game will be moved to 2017. The reason? To "improve the quality" of the game!

Nintendo has also released to its investors a schedule of its upcoming games in which Zelda Wii U was slated for a 2017 release. This is the second time that the company moved the release of the new Zelda game, from 2015 to 2016, and now 2017.

The Japanese tweet according to IGN translates in English as:

"Though originally scheduled for 2016, the release of the latest "The Legend of Zelda” title is postponed until 2017, to allow further improvement of quality. Thank you for your understanding."

Nintendo America also tweeted that Zelda Wii U will be released together with the NX version on March 2017. The new Zelda game will be the focus in this year’s E3 video game trade show but the NX will not be included in it. The Wii U version is the only playable game that Nintendo will present on the E3 show floor. 

 

This Zelda game was first announced by Nintendo in 2013 and since then, it has only revealed bits and pieces of gameplay. The project’s official name as well as the final date of release was not disclosed – until now.

 

The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask Inspired Wallet $24.95

With the absence of NX in the E3 to be held in June in Los Angeles despite its confirmed release with the Wii U version, this year’s E3 would be an odd event, wrote Venture Beat, as Nintendo will not be able to run the new Zelda game on a more powerful hardware.
