I got an early look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from E3 2016. BUY IT, you’ll thank me later. Forget everything you know about The Legend of Zelda games. 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. Nintendo opened up E3 today with a look at the new Zelda, and man does it look beautiful. It somehow manages to have that Nintendo feel while giving off an aura of Team Ico, and I’m really digging it. Chopping trees, hunting, cooking? That’s prime time open world chilling right there — no busywork, just straight chilling. Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the “same experience” on Nintendo NX as on Wii U.
The comment came during an E3 presentation after Aonuma was asked if the mysterious new NX will boast any exclusive features for Breath of the Wild, and Aonuma didn’t elaborate or offer any hints about what Nintendo may be planning.
Elsewhere in the presentation, Aonuma also confirmed that the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild will support the Pro Controller rather than requiring the use of the GamePad.
In addition to a ton of new footage we also got the game’s actual name — Breath of the Wild. Nintendo calls it “one of the biggest experiences” they’ve ever created. They claim that “no one” at E3 will be able to explore what is a “fraction” of the demo environment.
