In terms of sheer scale, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is looking to be the most ambitious entry in the series. During their exclusively Zelda focused presentation at this year’s E3, Nintendo revealed that Breath of the Wild is roughly 12 times larger than the map in Twilight Princess.
The demo shown at the event primarily focused on one of the game’s locations known as the Great Plateau, which featured large fields, enemy camps, and shrines. The area only represented 1% of the game’s total size, according to IGN. If these reports are true, Breath of the Wild could make even Wind Waker’s Great Sea look like a puddle.
For a better taste of Breath of the Wild’s scope, you can watch gameplay from the demo below:
In other Zelda related news, players will have the option to go straight to the final boss in Breath of the Wild. Also, an HD remaster of Skyward Sword is a possibility. Stay tuned for more updates on The Legend of Zelda in the upcoming months leading to Breath of the Wild’s release.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is expected to launch simultaneously on the Wii U and NX sometime in 2017.
