The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom — all the latest on Nintendo’s huge sequel
Wii U, it looks just like ancient Hyrule.
In 2014, we got a first demonstration video of what would be later named Breath of the Wild with Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma alongside Shigeru Miyamoto. It’s wild to watch this early state of the game in the wake of Tears of the Kingdom.
In the video, we get to see Link scout out a “suspicious” watchtower and drop a beacon on it. Link uses a sail cloth, and rides a horse that, as Aonuma points out, doesn’t run into trees. Link also battles Bokoblins, and Aonuma says a “metallic sound” is how you know your arrow hit them.
And hey, is that bar for stamina or magic?
