Despite all of the grandiose updates today, including the return of Goldeneye and Pokémon Stadium for Online members, news for Kirby and Mario Kart, it’s clear that Nintendo saved the best for last.
The Legend of Zelda has been the most requested update for months, and they finally delivered some very promising footage. There isn’t much to go on, but the music and art design are just as enchanting as ever. Breath of the Wild remains one of the most successful, compelling, and engaging action-adventures in the industry.
So, after years of waiting, the sequel has enormous expectations from fans. It’s due six years after the release of Breath of the Wild, and most of the new trailer focused on different kinds of movement or map traversal.
That was one of the highlights in Breath of the Wild, which created a tangible open-world experience with nearly unparalleled immersion and creativity.
Fortunately, it looks like the devs haven’t missed a beat, as if a single day hasn’t passed since Breath of the Wild. There is just as much creativity and love in this teaser to live up to the internet-breaking hype that is sure to result.
Now, fans quickly noted that Zelda will likely spend more time in the Kingdom instead of the wild. Also, the cinematic opening leaves a lot of mythological clues to decipher for the story.
