During The Game Awards 2014, Nintendo revealed some new gameplay footage for The Legend of Zelda Wii U.
In a video with Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma, we saw how large the world will be. The gameplay footage began with Miyamoto and Aonuma explaining how you can explore anywhere you can see. After marking a specific point on the map, which was displayed on the Wii U GamePad, Link jumped off a cliff using the Sailcloth, an item we last saw in Skyward Sword.
We then saw Link riding Epona through a forest, as Aonuma explained you will hardly have to touch the control stick to maneuver. The footage finished with Aonuma showing some horseback combat, and how you can aim and shoot arrows in slow motion. Check out the video for yourself down below.
Miyamoto and Aonuma confirmed that The Legend of Zelda Wii U would release in 2015. They also revealed that Star Fox would launch before Zelda.
