We recently saw The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Link being a bully by hitting Bokoblins with their own arms, and now Nintendo has released new footage of the supposed Hero of Time terrorizing unsuspecting creatures that were just minding their own business.

The video starts with Link dispelling stylized breath, which looks very nice--don't call me weird, you're weird. He then jumps off the cliff and uses his paraglider to make his way down the mountainous area. The video then cuts to Link dropping a bomb on a poor goblin, who literally wasn't doing anything. You can see the heinous act for yourself in the video at the top of the article.

Link proceeds to shoot a fire arrow at the grass in order to use its heat to stay in the air and continue to rain death upon the pitiful creatures. Link then comes down hard on the goblins with his sword before dispatching them with his bow and arrow.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild releases in 2017 for Wii U and NX. It has seen multiple delays since its announcement. Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto recently explained why it takes so long for new Zelda games to be made, saying it would be great if he "didn't have to put a release date out at all."

Breath of the Wild won the top award at Gamescom and the "Best of Show" honor at E3 2016. You can check out more gameplay footage of the game's power runes here.
