The more I see of Breath of the Wild, the sadder I am that it’s not coming out this year.
Nintendo released some new video footage of the game early this morning via Twitter, showing off a little more of the in-game physics with runes and explosives.
Link first uses runes as blocks of ice to traverse over a lake, and at the end he’s able to aim an explosive barrel into a group of enemies by seemingly slashing at it. There’s also extra footage of the Magnesis ability, which Nintendo showed off yesterday. (It’s included below if you missed that, however.)
There looked like a little frame rate drop at the end with the explosion and fire. Still, the new Zelda is looking nuts. For a Zelda game, anyway.
