E3 2016: Nintendo Treehouse

Nintendo started off the Treehouse with a trailer for Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild

Afterwards, they showed a trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon, which will release on November 18th 2016. After talking about the background of the game, they showed some gameplay. They also showed a video for Battle Royal mode where 4 trainers, each with 3 pokemons, battle.

Then they spent the rest of the day playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We got the see the beginning of the game where Link wakes up in a place that looks futuristic. They said they were introducing technology.

They wanted to do something completely new for this game.  In this game you will find clothing items and will be able to chose what you wear, or don’t wear, and you’ll need to wear things according to the temperature. For example, if you go in the snowy part of the world with a shirt not warm enough, or without one, you’ll lose health because Link will be too cold. You can also jump whenever you want now and this ability will help Link climb up walls. You can also interact with the nature more. For example, you can use an axe to cut down trees to get apples more easily and then you can cut the fallen tree into firewood. They also introduced a new way of getting weapons. You can find them in chests, laying around in the world, or you can steal them from your enemies; but be careful because they can now break when you use them a lot. If your health is low, you won’t find hearts hiding in the grass, instead, you’ll need to collect food and eat it to replenish your health. If you cook the food, it’ll replenish more hearts. You can also cook elixirs to give you bonuses.

They also introduced different weathers that are random. It can suddently start to rain or be foggy. There’s also a gradual night/day cycle so you can see the sun set and rise in the horizon.

In between some gameplay, they showed the Amiibos they were planning for this new game. You will be able to use the Wolf-Link Amiibo to bring him into the game as a partner character. There will also be an Amiibo of Link from the new game with his bow, “Archer Link”, and one of him on a horse with his face hidden, “Rider Link”. Lastly, there will be an Amiibo of a Guardian, and for the first time ever you’ll be able to pose him how you like because his “legs” will bend.
