New The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Screenshot Shared by Nintendo; Link Does Battle with a Guardian

December 29, 2016

Nintendo has shared a new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild screenshot courtesy of the franchise’s official Facebook page.

Found above and showcasing protagonist Link doing battle with a Guardian just as the enemy appears as if it’s about to fire, the image is shot at an oblique angle, for added style. The battle is taking place seemingly within one of the many temples players will comes across during their time with the title next year.

This updates comes as part of a steady stream of reveals that Nintendo announced two weeks ago. For those that may have missed out, the publisher released some new gameplay of Link riding down a snowy hill with his shield, another screenshot of the main character warming up by a fire, and some concept art of the hero’s cold weather garments. A festive holiday illustration was even shared.

As of the time of this writing, the game set is set to launch for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U, though no specific release date is known.
