Nintendo kicked off their E3 2016 conference by giving us what we have wanted for what seemed like forever, more information on the latest Zelda game, which has now been revealed to be entitled The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. There is apparently voice acting in the game now, though you never hear it from Link. You hear a mysterious female voice telling Link to wake up. In the new trailer it shows Link climbing trees, chopping down trees with an axe, shooting animals with arrows, cooking, sneaking, and more. There is no sight of Link’s iconic green tunic in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer, though we see him wear different clothing (even some fancy new armor). We do see what looks like the Master Sword though at the end.
The game truly is open world like they had said it would be, and it is quite evident that Aonuma was playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim while developing this game. The graphics are gorgeous, and look very similar to those in Skyward Sword.
They later show some gameplay of the game, showing off some of the new stuff in the game. There is no heart containers to refill your health, you do so by eating apples from trees or by hunting and cooking your own food. You see a lot of technology take center stage in this game, which gives it an almost futuristic feel. There has been no word yet as to where this game falls in the timeline. The game looks to be amazing, and could set the bar pretty high for all future Zelda games.
