The fact that a new Zelda game is in development at Nintendo isn’t a secret. The company has been teasing the game since before the Wii U even launched, and after years of being a vaporware, we finally know more about this game.
Nintendo announced the new Zelda game will be called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and it also released a trailer for the title. In what Nintendo claims to be the biggest Zelda game to date, players can expect a huge game world with a lot of things to do.
The trailer confirms there will be more to this game than just regular hack and slash mechanisms, with multiple sequences showing Link sneaking up to enemies, throwing explosives at them, and even rolling boulders onto them.
Stealth also seems to have been emphasized in the game as the game world features tall grass that can be used by our hero to sneak up on unsuspecting animals and enemies. Link can also be seen wearing a plate armor which means the game will feature more than one costume set.
The game will be releasing sometime in 2017 for the Wii U. Check out the trailer below.
