New Ad For “Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” Has Many Fans Talking

A brand new ad for “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” was released at the Video Game Awards, and it has a lot of fans talking. After watching this ad, many gamers believe this new game will allow Link to time travel and call on kinsmen within the game to fight by his side.

 

The scene gamers focus on to make the time travel claim is an encounter between Link and an enemy that looks somewhat like a bird. Gamers point out that the Master Sword Link is wielding looks brand new, which directly contrasts a similar scene shown in E3’s 2016 “Breath of the Wild” trailer. In the E3 ad the sword looks more worn than in this latest version.

 

Another aspect of these two ads fans point out is that in the E3 ad Link had a Sheikah slate, but in the new ad he has no Sheikah slate. This would indicate that time travel was used; at least that’s what a few fans conjecture.

 

If time travel were to be used in the new Zelda title, it wouldn’t be a first for the series. Time travel was featured prominently in “Majora’s Mask,” and it was also a part of the classic “Ocarina of Time” game.

 

This new ad also has some people wondering if non-playable characters (NPCs) will be a part of the new Zelda adventure. Viewers can easily see a few NPCs helping Link ward off Bokoblins in the latest ad.

 

In addition to all these theories, a strange female was partially shown in this new ad. All that could be seen for certain was that this female character was holding a Sheikah slate in front of Link. Many people believe this female must be either Princess Zelda or someone related to the royalty, since Link was kneeling before her.

 

Nintendo has yet to confirm or deny any of these rumors. Gamers will simply have to wait till they get the game in their hands next year.

 

Speaking of an official release date, Nintendo has not been specific about when this game will be released for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. Amazon currently lists the Wii U version of the game for $50.99 and puts the official release date on March 31st of next year. However, some people think that that date is just a placeholder and believe Nintendo will release the game earlier in 2017.

 

 

Release Date Speculation and New Gameplay Clips From “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”

More details about “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” have been released over the past couple of days. Most significantly, a report in Gamesradar, which is the Nintendo of Europe’s amiibo website, said that amiibo accessories for the new Zelda title would be released on March 4th of 2017. This has led many gamers to believe that the new Zelda game will be released either before or on March 4th of next year. Many gamers believe in the March release date because amiibo accessories are usually only available for purchase after a game has been put on the market.

For those who are unaware, amiibo accessories are character figures that gamers can use on their near-field communication reader for the Wii U GamePad to unlock certain bonuses in a video game. A few of the amiibos that are expected to be released for “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” include two different versions of Link and a Guardian.

In addition to the news about amiibo accessories, a new clip has been released showing more gameplay from the new Zelda game. This latest clip shows Link cooking different items by a fire three times. In the first part of the clip he makes a hearty steamed mushroom out of a hearty truffle and a hearty radish. Link later eats the hearty steamed mushroom before fighting a few enemies. The hearty steamed mushroom gives Link four extra hearts on the top left of the screen.

The second part of this clip shows Link picking up some spicy peppers and later preparing them by a fire. Then, when he is in a cold climate, Link eats the spicy sautéed peppers and he is immediately unfazed by the cold breeze.

Finally, in the third major part of the clip, Link puts together a whole bunch of different ingredients in a pot. Unfortunately, this time it only produces a so-called “dubious food” which shows no real health benefits.

Apparently, cooking will play a larger role in this new game, especially in terms of strategy and healing. But, like in the real world, gamers will have to get their ingredients right for these foods to have any benefit.

Although the release date of March 4th has not been confirmed by Nintendo, many gamers are hoping that the recent report by Gamesradar is a hint that the new Zelda title will be released around that time next year. Gamers can only wait for more comments from Nintendo officials in the ensuing months for more clarity on this issue.

New Footage of “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” Shows Off the Bow and Arrow

New footage was just released of “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” on Nintendo of Europe’s Twitter page. The 42-second clip shows off a classic weapon from “The Legend of Zelda” series: bows and arrows.

The clip shows Link shooting many different kinds of arrows at enemies. He also uses a normal arrow cut a rope and let a bridge fall. And, of course, Link uses his shield and sword in battle. This clip shows that players will be able to switch between arrows very efficiently as gameplay pauses while they make a shift.

In total, it looks like Link will be equipped with fire, ice, bomb, and normal arrows, all of which made an appearance in previous Zelda titles. Some other weapons that have been shown in other video clips for “Breath of the Wild” include axes, clubs, and even hammers. There are sure to be many occasions to spice combat up in this new game.

Nintendo is yet again highlighting how important interacting with the environment in novel ways will play a role in this new Zelda title. Link’s use of the plain arrow to let the bridge fall indicates how gamers will have to think in novel ways in this game. This might make the puzzles in dungeons even more inventive and challenging than previous Zelda games.

Every little piece of footage Nintendo has released for this game has made fans even more anxious to explore this vast open world Zelda title. Some earlier videos showed Link freezing water into stepping blocks, using a magnet to bring up chests from the water, and using strange toxic barrel against enemies. With all of these new features, it is refreshing to see the good old bow and arrow will make another appearance in this title.

Aside from exploring the open world and finishing the main storyline, this game looks like it will keep Zelda fans occupied for many days with side-quests. For example, has been confirmed that there will be 100 Shrines of Trials to complete in this title.

Fans will just have to wait until March of 2017 to try this game out for themselves. “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” will be released on the WiiU and on Nintendo’s new NX console.

A Mirror Reporter Previews “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”

The Mirror reporter Ryan Brown recently got to try out “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” for the Nindento Wii U. In his review of his hour of hands-on experience, Brown expressed how this newest installment in the Zelda franchise is poised to be the most astonishing achievement since “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.”

The main thing that knocked Brown’s socks off was the the size of this open world experience. The map is reportedly 12 times larger than “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.”

Although there will still be old staples like Ganon and rupees, there are some notable changes in this new game. For example, gamers will not find floating hearts in this new installment. Instead they will have to seek out things like apples and meats to replenish health. Also, all the weapons are more durable and have to be changed more often.

Gamers will be able to change up combat by pushing boulders or cutting down trees over enemies. The environment plays a much more interactive role in this game.

Some special treats in this game include 100 “shrines” that gamers can explore. For anyone who likes the dungeon puzzles Zelda is so well known for, these side-missions will provide hours of amusement.

Overall, Brown’s reaction piece to “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” is not just positive, but positively ecstatic. This highly anticipated game is slated to be released in March of 2017.
