Link Takes To The Skies In The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

Nintendo continues to release new bite-sized clips of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, including one that showcases Link's paragliding abilities.

Nintendo shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to their Twitter feed. Earlier today, they released another gameplay clip from The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, which shows Link taking to the skies with his trusty paraglider.

The clip, which you can check out below, shows Link taking in his surroundings from atop a mountain. Before long, he’s sailing through the air thanks to his trust paraglider, which we’ve seen during footage which was released during E3 2016.

Of course, fans of the series will know that this isn’t the first time Link has tried to sail through the air. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword introduced the sailcloth, which Link used to glide short distances, while The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker made use of the Deku Leaf in a similar manner.

Still, while hang gliding may not be the most original concept for a Zelda game, the newly-released clip shows that Nintendo still has a few tricks up its sleeve. One scene shows Link conducting his own version of an air raid, as he drops a bomb onto an enemy below as he simply floats on by. Players will also be able to quickly equip another weapon and use it before switching back to the paraglider. As shown shortly after, Link uses a fire arrow to cause a fiery updraft, which keeps him afloat for a little longer.

There’s still a long wait until we’ll be able to get our hands on The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, Which is set to release sometime next year. Until then, be sure to check out the other clips Nintendo has released, including one that showcases Link’s different elemental arrow types.
