At this point, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is just on the horizon, and gamers are looking on as it and the NX rapidly approach. Recently, Nintendo of America posted on their Twitter page a video showing off the diverse weapons in the upcoming game. Today, they posted some new footage demonstrating the arrow types Link will be able to use:
As you can see in the footage, there are Fire Arrows, Ice Arrows, and Bomb Arrows, each with their own unique practical use. For example, while Bomb Arrows are used for destruction of the environment and, as a result enemies, Ice Arrows are best used to combat opponents, as they seem to slow them down.
This is pretty significant, as Ice Arrows, for example, were never a huge component in any Zelda game. The one exception would be Ocarina of Time, where the arrows were optional. Whether that is the case with Breath of the Wild remains to be seen, but since it is capitalized on in the trailer, Ice Arrows may be more than optional.
While these recent trailers haven’t been more than a minute, they have still given fans a glimpse at what looks to be the premiere game for the NX and a possible system seller. Regardless, gamers can expect to see this game in 2017. In the meantime, we will keep you updated with any other gameplay footage released by Nintendo for gamers to enjoy.
