Nintendo is putting the spotlight on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on day one of E3.

At the E3 game trade show in Los Angeles, Nintendo extensively showcased the gameplay in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games. Nintendo Treehouse: Live spent the rest of the day playing even more content from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The large-scale demo for E3 only shows a fraction of the full game. Not only the scale of the demo is impressive, but also the depth of the experiences that players can get. Only a corner of the veil is lifted in the demo version of this breathtaking adventure in a huge open world.

Here’s a quick recap of today’s highlights. Visit http://e3.nintendo.com/videos for more information on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, including clips from Nintendo Treehouse: Live.

Shrines of Trials: Players will encounter over 100 of these temples in various locations throughout the game. In some cases, the search for a temple is a puzzle in itself. These Shrines offer compact challenges that can be solved in different ways. To get a Spirit Orb from the monks who designed these structures, players must complete a challenge or solve puzzles.

Runes: Players can earn Runes by exploring Shrines. For example, the Magnesis Rune allows Link to lift and throw metal objects. The Remote Bomb provides access to two different types of bombs: spherical bombs that you can roll and cube-shaped bombs that you can put away. With the Stasis Rune you can temporarily slow down moving objects and with the Cryonis Rune you can freeze water and form an ice pillar.

Weapons and Combat: Throughout the game, players will encounter a variety of weapons, many of which have never been seen before in the series. Players must search for weapons or take them from defeated enemies. However, weapons wear out over time. In addition, players can slow down time to time their offensive and defensive maneuvers so they can target enemies with well-aimed attacks.

Food: The new Zelda game leaves behind another important, traditional part of the series. Players looking to replenish their hearts or hoping to collect a few rupees will be disappointed when they hack into blades of grass with their sword. Link can find all kinds of food in his environment, including apples and mushrooms. The hero can also go hunting. Eating fruits and raw meat can partially replenish Link’s energy, but cooking dishes with different ingredients results in meals that have different effects. For example, you can become temporarily resistant to cold or heat.

Climate: Whether trekking over snowy peaks or through scorching deserts, Link must adapt his clothing to the weather conditions. In order not to become hypothermic, he can put on warm clothes, warm himself by the flames of a torch or eat food to maintain his body temperature and energy. Link also has to be on his guard when there’s a storm. If he carries metal weapons during a thunderstorm, he can be struck by deadly lightning bolts.

amiibo: A new series of amiibo figures has also been announced, which will be released alongside the game. Finally, the Nintendo Treehouse hosts showed how the Wolf-Link amiibo from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD can be used in the new Zelda game. When players hold a Wolf-Link amiibo to the Wii U GamePad, Link will receive reinforcements from Wolf-Link, which will attack enemies on its own. Wolf-Link initially has three hearts, but that number can be increased by clearing the Cave of Shadows in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. You can use Wolf-Link once a day and it will disappear when it runs out of hearts. The next day you can call Wolf-Link to help again.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is slated to release simultaneously for both Wii U and Nintendo’s next system (codenamed NX) in 2017.
