The Legend of Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto and current series director Eiji Aonuma dropped more than a few jaws at last night’s The Game Awards when they unveiled a breathtaking developer walkthrough for The Legend of Zelda on Wii U.
The footage, which we of course have for you at the bottom of this article, shows off the series’ new found scope and scale with Link able to see for miles around while using the GamePad as map to identify destinations and points of interest.
Happily, we can also report that Link’s trusty steed, Epona, has also returned and boasts some brilliant AI of her own as she can weave between trees and other obstacles without prompting from the player.
Furthermore, Link himself also boasts a whole host of new moves, including the hugely stylish ability to leap off Epona while aiming and firing his bow in slow-motion.
Oh and obviously, it all still looks absolutely stunning.
Furthermore, Nintendo raised hopes by saying that the game would still release in 2015, but that both Majora’s Mask 3D and the newly announced Star Fox Wii U would both arrive first.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on that gorgeous gameplay footage from The Legend of Zelda on Wii U below.
