Nintendo Unveil The Legend of Zelda for Wii U

Runtime: 3:50    Author: NintendoWiiUUK    Category: Trailers

Nintendo has this morning unveiled the first glimpse at the next instalment in The Legend of Zelda franchise.

The newest game in the franchise introduces the first truly open world in a game from the series. Players can roam Hyrule Field or set off on a trek to distant mountains if they prefer.

Players can get to any area they can see from virtually any direction, which is being described as one of the ways that the game breaks with franchise norms and introduces new ways to play.

The Legend of Zelda is currently in development for Wii U and is scheduled for release in 2015.

After rubbishing Windwaker's art style when it first released and then being humbled when I played through that masterpiece of a game. I have no problems with anything Nintendo does to Zelda games. I seriously cannot wait for this game.......but I have to 'cause it comes out next year. Freaking excited!!!

Yeah, Windwaker was a real lesson in not judging a book by its cover! I think this should be epic and looks stunning!
