With less than a month before the game's official release date, a new trailer for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" was posted online last Wednesday, with the video looking nothing short of impressive.
The game's official Japanese website shared the trailer titled "Guard. In This Destiny," and it runs for 2 minutes, showing glimpses of the RPG's majestic environments as well as some action-packed sequences. One of the trailer's highlights features some Guardian creatures wreaking havoc in a city by setting it on fire. The video also gives quick previews of the many different opponents in the game, some of which are gigantic in size.
Last December, Nintendo, the video game's developer, gave an in-depth look of the RPG during the 2016 Game Awards, with some direct footage of the gameplay. Moreover, they also released a short trailer showing a number of creatures and different locations, as well as a glimpse of Princess Zelda.
Meanwhile, gaming website GamesRadar reported that Nintendo showed 25 minutes of uninterrupted gameplay of the new "Zelda" game from its "Nintendo Treehouse" presentation. The video showed the protagonist solving puzzles and flying over the fields with remarkable environment shots full of mountains, pastel grasses, and ruins of stonework that were seen crumbling into the hillsides.
Incidentally, the video also showed the game loading a bit longer compared to some of the games under the Nintendo catalog, though not as much as that of GTA 3, the GamesRadar report added. However, the hardware and game code may not be the same as the final version, which means loading time may still differ.
The game will be released for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch, although slight differences can be expected for the two platforms, Nintendo shared earlier. The game runs on 720p when played on the Wii U, while it improves to 900p when played on the Switch. The developers, however, noted that the difference may not be noticeable.
The game will debut on March 3 with a price tag of $59.99.
