The new Zelda announced as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
The new Legend of Zelda finally has a name and it is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild.
Though there are more details to come, the short introductory video that kicked off the Nintendo Treehouse E3 event featured sweeping shots of Hyrule fields, our hero in green Link chopping down trees and hunting, an interesting new magnet tool and much more.

The wait for this news has been an especially long one, as The Legend of Zelda for Wii U was first announced way back in January 2013. Then over a year later, fans finally got their eyes on the new Zelda at the 2013 E3 presentation and it was game on.
Well, not quite. The original trailer, while visually stunning in all its cel-shaded glory, showed no gameplay and didn't really set a precedent for what players could expect when they finally got their hands on the egame. Luckily, a recent build of the upcoming game was shown by Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma later that year at The Game Awards in Las Vegas.
