The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most anticipated titles for 2017. While it has been delayed numerous times, its most recent showing in E3 boosted the spirits of many a fan. Now there is even more footage of the game for fans to check out, as it shows series protagonist Link with new weapons and offensive capabilities.
Fans can check out the link ? no pun intended ? on the game’s official Facebook page, where it shows a number of ways our protagonist can defend himself. The video starts out with his basic sword, which has always been his weapon in the series. He also gains access to an axe and a flaming staff that shoots out fireballs, which is pretty cool.
Link is also seen tearing off an enemy’s arm and using it as a weapon. This might be the most ?metal? moment in the series, since previous games have only had him use swords, boomerangs and bombs. Seems like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be one of the most combat-oriented games in the series, which should make the game feel fresh compared to other installments.
We also know that this will be the biggest Zelda game to date, with a huge open-world to explore and do things. The game also makes great use of the graphics engine of the Wii U and the Nintendo NX. The NX might not be as strong as the PS4 or Xbox One, but the upcoming system should be able to hold its own in terms of great games, and this Zelda title might be proof of that.
Along with Breath of the Wild, it’s been reported that Mario and Pokemon would be part of the NX library within the first six months. Those are three of Nintendo’s hottest properties and should make the new system much more popular than the underrated Wii U.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be coming out sometime in 2017 for the Wii U and the NX. Fans can expect this game to be good, since it has been delayed numerous times.
