New Legend Of Zelda Footage Shown And Narrated By Miyamoto

Though he wasn’t present at the video games award show last night, Shigeru Miyamoto made an appearance via a video that saw him narrating and showing off new footage for the Legend of Zelda game that’s coming to Wii U next year.

Miyamoto took the time to give us a look at just how huge the world is, as well as a few details on how the Wii U’s controller will assist in navigation. In the video, Link can be seen exploring high peeks to get a good perspective of his surrounding environment, riding his trusty steed, and even partaking in a bit of combat before jumping off his mount to engage his foes with a bit of slow motion gameplay.


We still don’t have a firm release date but Miyamoto did reiterate that it would be launching in 2015.

  1. That looks truly wonderful, and means that the reveal-trailer from E3 could well have been actual gameplay shown with a cinematic camera.

    • They are certainly getting a lot of juice out of the WiiU.

      It’s such a shame that Nintendo have got so much right with this console and it is the one that struggles. After the quality of the Mario titles I was thinking that a new Zelda game would blow my mind. This one looks amazing. A new Metroid and F-Zero would be nice too.

  2. Looks amazing, though some big fps drops in places for seemingly no reason, I’m sure they’ll sort it out. It reminds me I must play my copy of Skyward Sword…

    • There’s basically a year left of development, and the majority of polish and such is done in the last part of development. There’s a reason they’re showing it off-cam and being very selective of what they’re showing. :-)

      Epona looks a lot like Agro from Shadow of The Colossus. In a good way.
