It has been a long while that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been in the news for all the rumours that have gone up regarding the gameplay of the game. And finally, we get the opportunity to get a new glimpse of what the game is going to be all about. It was in The Game Awards 2016 that we got the first look at the new gameplay trailer of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
All this while it has been a subject of speculations and finally we have got something new to talk about regarding the gameplay of the upcoming game. The three and a half minute video opens with Link coming across the minstrel Kass while he begins his quest for the shrine. Link is the protagonist whom the players will have to control to play the game. Now the first thing that attracts our attention is Kass who is found to be playing a soothing music on an accordion. He passes down an excerpt from an old verse which says “Where the dragon’s mouth meets the serpent’s jaws/ A shrine sleeps in the forest with noble cause.”
Now as Link moves on, we find him coming across a number of demon-like lizards. And as he gets closer to the cave, a lizard make an appearance with its tongue out which can be assassinated with a ‘flurry rush’. The flurry rush looked really good as it did not take much of an effort to get the better of the demon. Now with these two pawns killed and the Soldier’s Broadsword destroyed Link is found to be taking out one of the better weapons as he moves ahead in his quest.
The final hurdle as shown in the gameplay portrays a creature advancing as Link is found to be making a movement towards the cave. It will definitely be a big task for the player to get the better of the monster who seems to be quite efficient at avoiding the weapons hurled at him. And once the demon is killed one can see the protagonist of the game picking up the weapon of the demon which is the Spiked Moblin Club. Also with the end of the one-on-one battle with the lethal creature, one can notice something glowing at a distance. This is where the gameplay comes to an end which shows the intention of the makers of the game that they want to keep the suspense regarding the quest intact.
As far as the gameplay is concerned, one thing is for sure that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one heck of a game. The surroundings as shown in the short video of the gameplay are really amazing. But one thing that could be noticed is that one hit from one of the lizards almost exhausted more than fifty percent of the life of the protagonist which makes it even clearer that it is going to be much difficult to progress into the final stages of the game.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is slated to be coming out on the Nintendo Switch which is rumoured to be unveiled very early in the upcoming year as the previous reports have suggested. Till then the wait for this game must keep on going. But one can say that the game is worthy of all the patience that the fans are showing regarding its official release.
