New Zelda: Breath of the Wild Video Shows 30-Plus Minutes of Gameplay
The video is in Japanese, but gameplay is universal.
Nintendo has released a new gameplay video for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The video, posted to Nintendo's Japanese YouTube account, features Japanese comedian Masaru Hamaguchi playing the game and cracking jokes. He's in the comic group Yoiko, together with Shinya Arino.
English captions are not available, so you might miss out on the jokes, but the gameplay footage is universal. We see Link adventuring through gorgeous environments, fighting monsters, and collecting items. It appears this is the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild on display here. Check it out:
As announced previously, Breath of the Wild is also coming to the recently announced Nintendo Switch. A release date for the game has not been announced, but a report said the game would debut within six months of the Nintendo Switch's release, so that would be anytime from March to August 2017.
This new video follows other gameplay videos for Breath of the Wild that Nintendo released last week. Those videos showed off things like weather transitions and exploration; see them here.
Breath of the Wild is the first new core entry in the Legend of Zelda series for consoles since 2011's Skyward Sword.
As for the Nintendo Switch, it's a console/mobile hybrid system that features detachable controllers. For lots more on the system, check out GameSpot's roundup of everything you need to know.
