Nintendo’s Zelda: Breath of the Wild Takes Centerstage at the E3 2016 Event

By on

Did Nintendo intentionally create a shrine instead of a booth at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 event? According to the Verge, that?s exactly how the Nintendo booth turned out in the event, highlighting the presence of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the open. Intentionally it seems, because Nintendo had every motive to make Zelda: Breath of the Wild the biggest game in the event. They even made it as the only playable game in their lineup and that?s just during the first day of the E3.

The second day was busier in the sense that Nintendo had to attend to gamers and participants wanting to try the game. Line after line, the participants bagged their patience just to get the opportunity to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild. According to Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo president and COO, he believes that they were able to strike a chord in every participant with everyone braving the lines to wait for their turn to play Zelda.

?The Legend of Zelda? is a Nintendo trademark and according to the source, though it may not have gained massive success compared to other successful Nintendo games, it has in the past given the company a total of 75 million copies sold.

As a treat to fans who lined up for hours just to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo presented them with a different Zelda in terms of the concept. The Verge says that while the protagonist still possesses the character of the original Zelda, the environment seemed to have expanded in a way unimaginable to fans. Fans didn?t need to worry about end paths and gamers who are up to the challenge will enjoy crafting and building their own choice of weapons.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild has taken Zelda in a different level that while its story concept subtly changes, it remains faithful to the characteristics of its original characters. No wonder Fils-Aimes said, ?We think we?ve struck a chord, and we?ve struck a chord with what is a very important franchise for us. A franchise that is going to be key to our long-term success.?
