Nine Cool Things I Did In Zelda: Breath Of The Wild At E3

We ended this E3 the way we started, by going hands-on with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is direct feed footage of some cool moments that happened naturally as we played the game.

Hunting, cooking, stealth attacks, wolf link and more. Tip: Listen with headphones, because the sound design is excellent.

    I want to see the first try crossing that tree after you dropped it over the ravine :P

    I'm going to play the crap out of this game.

    Because it is inevitably going to be so great, I'm now grappling with the decision to get it on the NX or not.....whatever the NX is to be.

      Depends if you are going to pick up an NX anyway?
      I am, so there is no choice about what console to get it on. I'll probably pack away my Wii U on the same day (Unless Yooka-Laylee doesn't make it over and hits around launch time).

        Wii U version because it's the true version, right? Like with TP :P

          Don't think that will apply here. They've moved away from the gamepad for managing inventory etc, so they will be much the same. Possibly some visual perks on the NX one.

            I really hope that the NX will be backwards compatible like the Wii and Wii U. If so, I'll put all my PC games on hold to finish the Wii U games before the NX launch, and then sell it after transferring any data to the NX.

            But then, from the rumours, it seems that the NX won't have a GamePad-like screen, so maybe you need to keep the GamePad around to sync it with the NX if you want to use backwards compatibility? Hmm.

              Since the Wii U has one of the smallest install bases in recent times I'm thinking that BC isn't going to be something they focus on. Best time to make a clean break and use different architecture for greater 3rd party support.

                That same argument could be made for the GameCube, though, and the Wii had 100% BC. The thing is, I always break out the Wii U when I have friends over to play Nintendo Land, Wii Party U, Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, New Super Mario Bros U, and now Runbow, and I want to keep with the single console. It will take a while to replace all of those games with new ones on the NX.

                I'm not sure Nintendo should bother much more with 3rd party support (except for indies). It hasn't worked for them much in the past, and I don't think it will change much now.

                  That's the thing - making the architecture similar enough that pumping out multiplats doesn't cost much so becomes worthwhile again. I'm going to go an assume that it would also be easier for indies if they went with x86 as most also release on PC.
                  They'll also have to support the gamepad, but I suppose that's not too hard as there are no wires anymore.
