In the heat of yesterday’s incredible flood of news, namely the Nintendo Switch and Red Dead Redemption 2 reveals, the rest of updates from the gaming industry quickly became overshadowed. In case you missed it, GameSpot uploaded an official weather time-lapse of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and it looks impressive beyond (my) expectations.
The video above showcases a single landscape with a few iconic teases looming in the background. Death Mountain can be seen recessed on the right, while way off in the distance you can make out the silhouette of what appears to be Hyrule Castle. Ruins, trees and grass blowing in the wind, and what looks like a shoddy enemy outpost make up the foreground to give players a taste of what environments Link can will encounter out in the fields. This quiet calm doesn’t last long, however, as a pretty wicked storm this way comes.
Needless to say, it’s wildly breathtaking (eh? eh? anyone?). There’s no clarification if this footage is from the Wii U or the Nintendo Switch (I assume the former); but if anything, the video above maintains the excitement generated in me from yesterday’s news.
