The Legend of Zelda Wii U - A Release Date to Remember?
In terms of Zelda Wii U, how hyped are you guys for its release date? Nintendo have scarcely mentioned the game since they announced its delay to 2016. That was up until the first Nintendo Direct since the passing of Satoru Iwata, which took place last week. We were teased plenty of new game footage from all kinds of Nintendo products, as well as some pretty beautiful announcements - Pokemon Blue and Red, people!!!
But one of the highlights of the Direct, was The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. We were teased only a tiny portion of the game. Yes, it looks incredibly beautiful, but couldn't we have seen a bit more? Ten seconds, really?
Here's a great YouTube clip that breaks down the reveal and points out some interesting secrets hidden within it!
Some cool points from the video:
- Graphics wise, the grass is ludicrously beautiful! You can see each blade of grass as it blows in the wind, or as Epona rides through it.
- Sneaking? With long grass, and enemies and animals reacting to your presence, they seem to think that Zelda could feature some stealth mechanics. Link is wearing a hood after all!
- Sleeping bag on Link's back could suggest that we can sleep, or possibly have to set up camp at night.
- Saddle bags on Epona? Could we be collecting a lot of loot or items in the game?
- Multiple shields could be in the game based on comparing previous footage with this reveal!
- Link's sword is MASSIVE! It seems that the game will allow you to carry different weapons, and a slight mark on Link's sword may allude to degradation!
Awesome, right? Let us know what you think of this beautiful image and The Legend of Zelda Wii U footage in the comments below!
