The Legend of Zelda Wii U Gameplay Footage Revealed

Runtime: 4:55    Author: thegameawards    Category: Trailers

At The Game Awards 2014, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma showed off more gameplay for the next Legend of Zelda game, which is in development for Wii U.

The footage introduces a number of features to make traversing the open world easier. While scouting the map from high places, players are able to use first-person view to set waypoints, which are then applied to the map as well. Also, Link's horse Epona will intelligently avoid trees and other obstacles, to help with riding through forests. As Aonuma eloquently put it, "horses don't run into tree."

The new video also offers a first look at mounted combat, with Link able to swing his sword and shoot his bow from horseback. Additionally, Link can vault of Epona and shoot arrows while in midair, with a slow-motion effect assisting with aiming.

Finally, Aonuma confirmed that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U and the new Star Fox would both be coming out in 2015, with the latter planned to release first.
