Nintendo’s “one last thing to show us” was an absolute shocker. Starting with a creepy atmosphere and familiar cel-shading, we eventually saw Link and Zelda’s Breath of the Wild models come into view. Much of the imagery was unclear, but it seems the enemy won’t be calamity ganon again, but some creature that takes its power and lays siege on the now-peaceful Hyrule. Zelda’s inclusion in the trailer hopefully hints at her having a greater role in the story a la Skyward Sword, but only time will tell. Naturally since this is the first we’ve heard of the game, there was no gameplay or release window. Regardless, we here at Sick Critic are all incredibly excited.
