Here’s Your First Look at The Legend of Zelda Wii U!
A good long time ago, rumors spilled onto the internet regarding an original Zelda title designed for the Wii U, headed up by Skyward Sword's producer Eiji Aonuma. Word had it that Nintendo was constructing the biggest, most ambitious Zelda game in the series’ 25 year history. It was set to feature dungeons so expansive, you could fit some of the franchise’s biggest fields in them and still have breathing room.
Today, Nintendo gave us the briefest of peeks into a gorgeous and massive open world Hyrule. Aonuma explains hardware limitations meant past games were forced to segment areas, stitching them together to create the illusion of a larger whole, but in rethinking how his team approaches Zelda, Eiji wants to knock down those barriers and give players unprecedented access to the game’s world.
The goal is to let you travel and explore as far as your eye can see. In that way, Eiji says, traversal is the puzzle and figuring out how to get there is the solution.
Check out this eye-opening footage that shows off not only a glimpse at Link (or maybe someone else…?) in this expanded environment but also the alluring, highly detailed art direction the project is utilizing. The Wii U’s Legend of Zelda is projected for 2015, and if this is just a taste of what’s to come, I have no doubt this game will be a guaranteed system seller for Nintendo when next year rolls around.
E3 2014: Ubisoft reveal Far Cry 4 trailers, screens
Ubisoft today released a pair of new videos and some screenshots for Far Cry 4, an open-world, first-person shooter in the works at Ubisoft Montreal.

Somebody must have tasked Phil Spencer with two missions yesterday when he took to E3’s stage in Los Angeles: 1) Avoid showing off anything regarding, related to, or even remotely reminiscent of TV apps and 2) Slowly strangle anyone who dares utter the word “Kinect” while staring into their eyes as their soul fades from their body like a light dimming.
I say this because Phil made damn sure the only thing that took center stage besides camera-shy, stammering game developers was the games themselves. What ensued was probably one of the better conferences held by the company in quite some time — Microsoft wasn’t going to let Sony blacken their eye again like at last year’s event.
Below, I’ve collected (almost) every title named at the Xbox presser. Be sure to click on each game’s name to peep an accompanying trailer.
See, don’t I take care of you guys?
