'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2' Trailer: Aerial Stone Structures, Link's New Abilities
There is a lot of in-game content to unpack in "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2" video trailer. The first to note is the game expansion involving the skies. The trailer showed a bunch of aerial stone structures confirmed to be floating islands. Players could explore these areas, so its safe to assume that new boss rounds and game lore will be hidden in Hyrule skies.
Link also gains upgraded skills in this game sequel, and these exciting clues are well hidden in the trailer! In the first few seconds of the video, a brief image shows Link's right hand getting attacked. As Link skydives, notice how his right arm looks different, like some kind of prosthetic, compared to his left. Near the middle of the video, a right arm is featured to glow green. Lastly, as Link activates "Statis," a skill similar to turning back time, that he also uses his right arm!
That's not all. Near the end of the video, Link is featured to go through the floating island floors! It confirms that Link will get new abilities that let him phase through certain surfaces, opening up a huge potential in game exploration. Imagine how many secret rooms could be hidden inside Hyrule's walls!
Lastly, gamer critics from the Blind Wave are speculating that the final clip in the video is teasing the addition of the Twilight Realm.
