The short trailer shows Link venturing around Koholint Island meeting NPCs like the Raccoon and battling against enemies. It also showed Link exploring the game’s dungeons and encountering some of the bosses and mini bosses in the game.
The second half of the trailer introduces a brand new mechanic to the game. Dungeon Customization. Link ventures to a house that replaced the Camera House belonging to a character named Dampé, a character from past entries in the series, and players are introduced to creating their own custom dungeons. These dungeons, known as the Chamber Dungeon, are made of rooms from all other dungeons across Koholint Island that Link has discovered already. Players will be able to build their own dungeons and “explore to your heart’s content!” Completing these dungeons will net players special rewards such as a Fairy Bottle.
There will also be a new Amiibo featuring this game’s version of Link released alongside the game. Along with that, there will also be a special Dreamer Edition of the game that includes an artbook. There is also a Limited Edition of the game that comes with the artbook and steelbook case that looks like a classic Game Boy.
This wasn’t the only big Zelda reveal during the Direct either. Nintendo ended their presentation by revealing a sequel to 2017’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is currently in development.
