Zelda: Breath of the Wild footage – three new trailers you want to see

Nintendo has delivered a whole slew of new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild footage this morning. These new trailers, of which there are three in total, come just ahead of the company’s planned NX debut. They’re giving us our most extensive look at the game since it was announced at E3 earlier this year, so if you’ve been looking forward to Breath of the Wild, you’ll definitely want to check them out.

Each of the three trailers you see below has an individual focus. In the first, we’re treated to something of an exploration overview. The trailer shows off numerous environments that will feature in the game, as well as previewing a few of the ways Link will be able to traverse the terrain.

The second focuses on some of Breath of the Wild‘s gameplay elements. There are brief looks at activities like hunting, chopping wood, and cooking, though combat features heavily as well. We get to watch as Link uses an array of weapons to dispatch his foes, from a flaming club to his trusty bow and arrow.

The final video isn’t so much a trailer, but more of a weather showcase. We watch a single set piece as the weather around it changes from a breezy, sunny day to a stormy one, with shifting cloud cover and wind speed to boot. It may not be the most impressive weather demo around, but for the The Legend of Zelda – which usually deals with static environments – it’s not a bad little feature.

All in all, the footage on display here looks pretty good. As a lifelong Legend of Zelda fan, Breath of the Wild appears to be shaping up nicely. By the time Breath of the Wild launches, it’ll have been nearly six years since the last new Zelda game, so hopefully Nintendo is pulling out all the stops for this one.

While this footage is taken from the Wii U version, Breath of the Wild will also be one of the early, heavy-hitting titles for the NX. It’s unknown at this point if Breath of the Wild will look better on the NX or if it’ll just be a simple port, but hopefully that doesn’t remain a mystery for long, as Nintendo is set to reveal its newest console later on this morning. Stay tuned for that.
