Nintendo gave major announcements at this year's E3. The gaming company revealed the next Legend of Zelda game is titled 'Breath of the Wild', which looks impressive at demo. Also, the July release date of free-to-play mobile game Pokémon Go is now confirmed.
Here's the latest round up of update about Pokémon Go and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild release date, gameplay and features.
During Nintendo's second-day E3 live stream, it announced the Pokémon Go will be available in July for iOS and Android. The confirmation of the game's launching is good news for fans, but for those who have been following the game they know the app is getting a companion wearable. Nintendo said the wrist-worn wearable called Pokémon Go Plus costs $34.99. This gadget lets players catch monsters without looking at their smartphone. Unfortunately, it won't become available at Pokemon Go's launching.
Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game from the Niantic in cooperation with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company. During the game's field test in the United States, gamers witnessed how trainers can catch monsters in real-world setting. The game uses smartphone camera to integrate the digital creatures into the environment.
According to The Verge, Nintendo said players will be able to level up their characters to get stronger pokemon. In addition, there will be "candy" rewards that can be used to help pokemons evolve easily.
On the other hand, the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most popular games in E3. A lot of gamers wait for hours in Nintendo's booth to experience the game's 45-minute demo.
The new Legend of Zelda introduces new moves, new controls and stunning environment. Players can still lock onto enemies, parry attacks with their shield, and attack with their sword. Also, there's a bunch of new weapons. Players can use broken branch as a weapon, steal goblins' clubs, and grab a wood-cutting ax and more, as per report from Engadget.
In terms of art design, the game has breath-taking landscapes and realistic physics engine.
The Breath of the Wild has a massive open-world that players can explore in any way they want. However, there are powerful enemies and some environmental challenges along the way, so prepare for that. Nintendo has not yet revealed the official release date of the game, but it will become available next year. See the game's E3 trailer below.
