New Tidbits in the Nintendo Switch Advertisement
According to Digital Trends, Nintendo released their special Super Bowl advertisement for their upcoming hybrid console. The four-minute clip highlighted the basic features of the Nintendo Switch while trying to promote the device as a family-friendly system. It also showed off some of its games like 1, 2 Switch, Arms, Just Dance, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the upcoming Zelda title.
The advertisement teased an in-game boss and a scene wherein Link is protecting Zelda who was seemingly being attacked. However, it seems like players will have to find out what exactly happened in the full game as the trailer did not elaborate on that specific incident. Even so, there have been previous reports that this rendition of Zelda will be much more dynamic.
Meet the Characters of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Similarly, Nintendo Everything reports that the latest issue of Famitsu shared more details about the depiction of the said character. This Zelda is the princess of a ruined Hyrule kingdom who investigates various ancient ruins around the world. She is also a 'wise and curious girl' but has a 'deep complexity' to her character.
Moreover, her clothing suggests that this will be her most active role in the franchise yet. Despite this, Nintendo has not confirmed if she will actually be participating in battles or accompanying Link in his journey. Nonetheless, one photo in the magazine shows her trying to fend off a Guardian with light shooting from her hand.
That aside, the magazine also goes into further detail about the secondary characters. Mifa is a Zora girl from Hyrule who has some 'special powers' but is quite introverted and does not talk much. It is worth noting that she wields a spear but it is still unclear if she will be using it in battle. Meanwhile, Darkel is a Goron warrior who lives in the mountains of Hyrule. He is usually calm and collected but becomes rather brave in the heat of combat.
Lastly, Reebal if from the bird-like Rito tribe that dwell in the skies. He has the same scarf as Mifa and Darkel while wielding his own unique weapon. Fans can play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Mar. 3, 2017.
