Nintendo has released artwork for their upcoming RPG, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
On Facebook, Nintendo released two pieces of artwork for Breath of the Wild over the holiday weekend. The first piece of artwork features one type of the game’s enemies, the Guardians. The caption states: “As you’ve seen in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link will need to battle enemies called Guardians that come in a variety of sizes and shapes.” The second piece of art shows Link on a cliff gazing at a sunset, and featured the caption “Happy New Year!” Both pieces can be seen below.
Last November, a rumor emerged that Breath of the Wild will not release alongside the Nintendo Switch like originally planned. Thanks to a tip from Emily Rogers, who is known for reliable Nintendo hints, it seems that the upcoming RPG would not be done in March like originally thought. According to Rogers, localization would not be finished like anticipated, and that the game will require several months of testing after. This could mean that the game will release sometime in mid-2017.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release for the Wii U and Switch sometime this year.
