The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – English teaser website launched

Tomorrow (on Friday for Europe and North America), we will get another look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild during the Game Awards 2016. But before that, there’s finally an official website in English to check out… well, it’s just a teaser website at the moment, but it does feature various details about the game (nothing new, unfortunately). Click here (or here) to check it out!

On the front page, Nintendo put links to the various Nintendo Treehouse Live @ E3 2016 recordings, along with the “Hyrule: Then and Now” feature). The About section has some details about the “story”, like Link waking up after a 100 year-long slumber.

Just like they did at E3 2016, Nintendo put a lot of emphasis on how different The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is from previous entries (going so far as telling people to simply forget everything about them). You can freely explore the world, climb up mountains and towers, forage for food, hunt animals, and much more (including fighting enemies, obviously).

But to explore the world, you need to be prepared, and make sure you got the proper equipment. Going to climb a cold mountain? Don’t forget to wear something warm. Thinking of exploring the desert region? Keeping your cool (literally!) will be crucial. And just like in other Zelda games, you need strategy to defeat enemies (especially when they’re in group). Using all the tools at your disposals, as well as the terrain, will be key!

There’s also the Shrine of Trials: there’s over 100 of them, and as explained during E3, you can check them out in any order. There are filled with puzzles and traps, but completing them is more than worth it: it allows you to get some really useful rewards (such as items, abilities, etc.).

Naturally, the website also mentions the amiibo, and how you can summon Wolf Link in the game using the Wolf Link amiibo.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U / Switch) comes out next year, worldwide.
