The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild seems to prioritize feeling new and fresh, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for a little nostalgia.
The latest video released from Nintendo’s upcoming Zelda title gives players a first-hand look at how the iconic Temple of Time looks in the new game’s world.
Since it’s prime time during Ocarina of Time, the Temple of Time looks rundown, war torn, and, well, let’s just say it has seen better days.
Zelda fans will quickly recognize the music playing throughout the video – the piano keys are playing a much slower version of the Song of Time that plays as Link adventures through the temple the first time around.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release in March 2017 for Nintendo Wii U and for the Nintendo NX. The game was shown off at length during Nintendo’s E3 live stream in June, revealing an extremely large map, a bunch of new exciting systems, new stealth combat mechanics and more.
According to the game’s producer, Eiji Aonouma, the change in direction for the game was due to fan feedback.
“We got a lot of feedback from the people that played Skyward Sword. There were these pockets of worlds that players were able to dive into, but they really wanted to see what was in between those worlds – all the hidden elements they weren’t able to see. I thought that was really natural for Zelda fans, who like to explore, to uncover little secrets. We realised that we needed to make this free, open-air world.”
