New Legend of Zelda footage has been revealed, and there’s honestly no better finale to The Game Awards. The new Zelda displays a map, with the ability to zoom in on the Wii U gamepad, while the action takes place on the TV screen.
The new Zelda’s map is enormous, and travel will be made easy with the Hero of Time’s trusty steed Epona, who won’t be running into any trees thanks to a mechanic implemented in the game. Link is able to swing his sword on his horse, shoot and aim arrows, and attack enemies with an aerial dismount using your bow in slow motion.
