The new Legend of Zelda game looks absolutely gorgeous

When Nintendo get it right, they really knock it out of the park...

During their presentation speech at E3 this week, Nintendo unveiled a brand new trailer for the next Legend of Zelda game.

Now called "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind", the new game looks nothing short of stunning, boasting a cell-shaded graphical style similar to previous Legend of Zelda games The Wind Waker and Skyward Sword.

In a further "wow" moment, it appearsĀ Breath of the Wind could be the The Legend of Zelda series' first foray into open world gaming, as this version of Link (who might be a girl this time), cooks, crafts, hunts and solves puzzles in a number of varying locations. There seems to be a real interplay with the WiiU controller as Link casts magic spells and does combat with a number of creatures also.

For gamers who remember taking Epona across Hyrule Field in Ocarina of Time, the thought of an open world Legend of Zelda game has us in goosebumps.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind will be available on both the Wii U and the upcoming NX console that is expected to be with us in March 2017. We can't wait.
