Geoff Keighley’s long-time friend (and Nintendo of America’s head honcho), Reggie Fils-Aime, took to the Game Awards stage to present a new video for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild toonight. This one was less of a trailer and more of a Let’s Play courtesy of the Nintendo Treehouse. The video showed Link in action as he fought off some enemies, healed himself with some food, and battled a boss. The gameplay video ended just as Link approached a treasure chest (of course).
The biggest takeaway, though, is that Bill Trinen announced that Breath of the Wild is going to release in “2017,” which should only add fuel to the rumors that the title is going to miss its hoped-for March 2017 release date alongside the launch of the Nintendo Switch. Only time will tell.
However, we also got a new Breath of the Wild trailer tonight as well, and it’s available after the break.
