In related news, Nintendo has revealed another brief gameplay clip of Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, which gives us a glimpse of how runes work in the game.

Players can use the runes to create ice blocks in the water, which players can use to reach treasure chests in the middle of the lake, or players can use the runes to grab treasure chests in the bottom of the lake and it to them.

Eiji Aonuma recently revealed the inspiration for Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. According to him, the inspiration was 2014’s E3 Legend of Zelda.

After creating the trailer, I really wanted to put that in the game. So I ended up making it come true. There’s a lot I learned from that trailer. Once we’d put that element in the game, it made us think: what else can we do with this enemy? How else could we fight it? It expanded to new story ideas as well. The trailer became the basis for the whole game.
