"Many people from the media kept asking me if the footage from the new Zelda game for Wii U is just a promotional movie, but that really is actual gameplay on Wii U," Aonuma said. He didn't say, however, if the entire Zelda Wii U trailer was actually gameplay or if only a part of it was.
The trailer shows Link escaping from a terrifying monster, dashing through a riverside environment on his steed. The video features fire, water, and destrution effects, all of which look quite nice.
Aonuma went on to boast about the game's scope, saying, "I wasn't kidding about how you will be able to reach the mountains that appear in the distance if you should choose to!"
The Legend of Zelda for Wii U launches in 2015. GameSpot editor Peter Brown writes, "If Nintendo can deliver on its promise, fans of the Zelda series won't need to worry about the future of the console-size Zelda games. It might even end up being the killer Wii U title that everyone has been asking for."
