Nintendo Rolls Out Pair Of Bite-Sized Gameplay Clips For The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

Despite being one of the biggest games currently in development, there’s scant few details for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild littering the interwebs. Sure, you’ll find the odd concept art of Link in action, along with some high-res screenshots and extended gameplay from Nintendo’s Treehouse showcase at E3, but by and large, the Big N is keeping the vast majority of Zelda media under lock and key.

Peeling back the curtain ever so slightly, Nintendo’s Twitter feeds have doled out a pair of bite-sized gameplay snippets today. The first of which draws attention to the importance of Runes in Breath of the Wild and, in particular, the Cryonis Rune. Next up is a fleeting glimpse into the arsenal of tools at Link’s disposal, who can be seen calling upon a Woodcutter’s axe, the skeletal Bokoblin Arm, and the Fire Rod in the second clip.

Nintendo is aligning The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to release simultaneously across both Wii U and the NX in early 2017. It’ll be a launch title for the latter hardware.
