Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma revealed the first footage of the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for Wii U at today’s Nintendo Direct event. He briefly discussed that the game will feature an open world that will be more vast than ever before, which is more connected and accessible than in previous games.
The actual action footage was very short, as we simply saw Link riding Epona as a monster shooting lasers followed after them. We get a brief look at Link at the very end, and it’s safe to say they are going with the cel-shaded look once again. It’s certainly similar to Skyward Sword, but thanks to the HD graphics it truly makes everything much more lush.
The footage shown for the game was disappointingly short, and it looks like the game won’t be coming until sometime in late 2015. Check out the footage below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM9MGY2OL8o’%5D
