Nintendo Treehouse Live E3 2016: Day 1 — The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild all day.

You've been waiting for this moment forever: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U (and NX) is now The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And we're watching footage of it. A lot of footage of it. And commenting. ...A LOT of footage. Over four hours worth. Including new news about the game's antagonist and amiibo.

I'm Nintendork 13 13, Rawk is him, and Vortexica is breezinabout. We have quite a lot of content to share with you, so get ready:

RawkHawk2010 12:50 pm
    what do we think of that title 12:50 pm
    Breath of the Wild? It's alright.
    Could be better.
    Could be worse.

 RawkHawk2010 12:52 pm
    i like it

 Nintendork 13 13 12:52 pm
    Sounds like Breath of Fire + Wild Arms

 RawkHawk2010 12:52 pm
    + Call of the Wild 12:53 pm
    At least "BotW" is a game title acronym that hasn't been used before. So they're still keeping that up.

 RawkHawk2010 12:53 pm
    "Nintendo really should've stuck with their original plans to just air Zelda the whole time. It's actually what we wanted, we just didn't know it yet."

 Nintendork 13 13 12:54 pm
    I enjoyed the Pokémon.

 RawkHawk2010 12:55 pm
    ya it didn't go on for too long 12:55 pm
    I like Yungoos.

 RawkHawk2010 12:55 pm
    they're not gonna do that same segment again tomorrow though, right?

 Nintendork 13 13 12:55 pm
    I like Yungoos too.
    No they're starting tomorrow with a Pokémon GO session.
    And then various other games.

 RawkHawk2010 12:55 pm
    people are saying Breath of the Wild looks/sounds like a Miyazaki film and I agree.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:57 pm
    I hope this break keeps going until I'm done.
    The other conferences were like
    "nah bathroom breaks are for losers true gamers wear diapers" 12:58 pm
    we're back.

 RawkHawk2010 12:58 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 12:58 pm
    Aonuma has a rainbow ribbon. 12:59 pm
    Guy's wearing a Lens of Truth shirt.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:59 pm
    Along with his translator.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:59 pm
    Aonuma wants to "break the conventions" of Zelda. Wants to jump right in.
    Link is being baptised or something.

 RawkHawk2010 1:00 pm
    link is marinating 1:00 pm
    Thank goodness he's wearing shorts.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:01 pm
    "This is a very mysterious place Aonuma-san"

 RawkHawk2010 1:01 pm
    this is the beginning of the game? 1:01 pm
    "Shrine of Resurrection"
    Colour me intrigued.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:01 pm
    "That is a Sheikah Slate. Take it."

 RawkHawk2010 1:01 pm
    dat british voice acting 1:02 pm
    Not sure how to feel about that.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:02 pm
    He got an Old Shirt. 1:02 pm
    Equippable gear?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:02 pm
    And Well-Worn Pants.

 RawkHawk2010 1:02 pm
    "clothing items you *can* wear"
    you know, if you want

 Nintendork 13 13 1:03 pm
    (Maybe he'll find Contaminated Chinos) 1:03 pm
    BotW naked run.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:03 pm
    Apparently the clothing items increases his defence.

 RawkHawk2010 1:03 pm
    Whoever's talking sounds sorta like Krystal.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:03 pm
    Link has a manbun. 1:03 pm
    Someone get on that when this comes out.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:04 pm
    "Link... You are the light— our light— that must shine upon Hyrule once again. Now go."

 RawkHawk2010 1:04 pm
    JUMPING 1:04 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:04 pm

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild overworld size high view beautiful Hyrule
All of this is explorable. And MORE. 1:04 pm
    Breakin' all dem rules.
    This ain't your father's Zelda.
    Link being watched by a creepy guy in black.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:05 pm
    He picked up a Tree Branch.
    And took a Hylian Shroom.

 RawkHawk2010 1:05 pm
    wall climbing

 Nintendork 13 13 1:06 pm
    Most physically fit Link by far.

 RawkHawk2010 1:06 pm
    so stamina is still a thing

 Nintendork 13 13 1:06 pm
    Real-time weapon change.

 RawkHawk2010 1:06 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:06 pm
    "We love our mushrooms" - Treehouse 1:06 pm
    Harvestable items in the world.

 RawkHawk2010 1:06 pm
    where's the music

 Nintendork 13 13 1:06 pm
    "This mushroom isn't going to make any bigger."

 RawkHawk2010 1:06 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:07 pm
    I dunno.
    Maybe the music is kidnapped by the villain. 1:07 pm
    Link's head voice is getting impatient.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:08 pm
    ...(that world seems big)

 RawkHawk2010 1:08 pm
    "Does Hyrule Field really need music?" - Miyamoto

 Nintendork 13 13 1:08 pm
    (It also seems empty)

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Old Man baked apple
Hyrule is in a state where there is apparently no economy, barbers, or human interaction.

 RawkHawk2010 1:08 pm
    no more voice acting
    maybe it's just not acted yet

 Nintendork 13 13 1:09 pm
    Put tree branch on fire. Lighting a random bush.
    Trying to be Biblical.
    Animal Crossing axe.

 RawkHawk2010 1:10 pm
    more real-time weapon change

 Nintendork 13 13 1:10 pm
    Chopping trees.
    Chopping trees produces logs. Logs produces firewood if you chop them.
    Link dies

 RawkHawk2010 1:10 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:10 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:10 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:10 pm

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Korok
The Korok race is back from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker!

 Nintendork 13 13 1:11 pm
    "These guys are actually hiding everywhere in the world"

 RawkHawk2010 1:11 pm
    can dink live

 Nintendork 13 13 1:11 pm
    Link is dashing in the water, according to the prompt.

 RawkHawk2010 1:11 pm
    can link dive* 1:12 pm
    Guessing these are Bokoblin.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:12 pm
    Link only took 1/4 of a heart.

 RawkHawk2010 1:12 pm
    were bokoblins in the first zelda?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:12 pm
    No. 1:12 pm
    Weapons have durability apparently.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:12 pm
    He's using a Pot Lid as a shield.

 RawkHawk2010 1:12 pm
    I had never heard of a bokoblin until twilight princess

 Nintendork 13 13 1:13 pm
    So Fire Emblem Fates no longer has durability, but Zelda does? 1:13 pm
    Bokoblin ere in WW too.

 RawkHawk2010 1:13 pm
    oh yeah

 Nintendork 13 13 1:13 pm
    So this is like an upgraded version of Link using enemy weapons from Wind Waker.

 RawkHawk2010 1:13 pm
    I just didn't know what they were called then

 Nintendork 13 13 1:13 pm
    I really liked using enemy weapons in Wind Waker and thought they needed to do more with it.

 RawkHawk2010 1:14 pm
    bayonetta does that 1:14 pm
    And then TP introduced Bulblin to the 'blin' family.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:14 pm
    No more hearts in the grass, only food.

 RawkHawk2010 1:14 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:14 pm
    (aka hippie Link)

 RawkHawk2010 1:15 pm
    i like this idea of weapon scarcity
    if that's how it stays

 Nintendork 13 13 1:15 pm
    Witch Time? 1:15 pm
    Bullet time!

 RawkHawk2010 1:15 pm
    witch time 1:16 pm
    I hope there's gear comparison so you can tell at a glance not to equip rubbish.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:16 pm
    I can totally see amiibo being used to unlock costumes.
    Just saying.

 RawkHawk2010 1:16 pm
    fuck an amiibo

 Nintendork 13 13 1:17 pm
    Enemies have HP metres.
    So...are there any rupees in this game?
    Ooh, he got a bow. 1:17 pm
    All these grown-over mechs in the ruins are reminding me heavily of Laputa: Castle in the Sky, which was a Miyazaki film.

 RawkHawk2010 1:18 pm
    This item acquired sound effect is gonna get annoying.
    Oh hey.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:18 pm
    "It's inspired by Japanese animation"
    Good call, Vortex.

 RawkHawk2010 1:18 pm
    It reminds me of Princess Monomoke.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:19 pm
    I like the art style.

 RawkHawk2010 1:19 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:19 pm
    "THANK YOU FOR PLAYING!" 1:19 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:19 pm
    wait what

 RawkHawk2010 1:19 pm
    what a weird ending 1:19 pm
    Demo out of time?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:20 pm
    "We were supposed to disable that." 1:20 pm
    That wasn't supposed to happen.

 RawkHawk2010 1:20 pm
    Bill Trinen's a fuck-up.
    As usual.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:20 pm
    Bill Trinen made a Ted Cruz grin.

 RawkHawk2010 1:21 pm
    i think comparing the music to a painting-style might be nintendo getting a little too abtract.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:22 pm
    "We couldn't use the conventional types of music."
    "this time around we took a different approach."
    "There's a lot of environmental sounds."

 Nintendork 13 13 1:23 pm
    No one liked Environmental Noises in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. 1:24 pm
    ChuChus confirmed.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:24 pm
    The piano strikes a chord in people's emotions?
    ChuChus were in Reggie's trailer. 1:24 pm
    they were?
    I must've missed them

 Nintendork 13 13 1:24 pm
    Ya, they were jumping and blue.

 RawkHawk2010 1:24 pm
    is this all zelda is gonna ever say?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:25 pm
    They're saying the "new take on the aural experience is refreshing"
    Is there EVER gonna be music?

 RawkHawk2010 1:25 pm
    aka "no music is refreshing"

 RawkHawk2010 1:25 pm
    yeah this is disappointing.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:25 pm
    Link can Witch Time all he wants, but...

 RawkHawk2010 1:25 pm
    The music in the trailer was really amazing and then there's none in the actual game!

 Nintendork 13 13 1:25 pm
    (Bill Trinen doesn't put pants on at work.)

 RawkHawk2010 1:25 pm
    That's bullshit!
    is that a TNT barrel

 Nintendork 13 13 1:26 pm
    Trinen calls playing with explosives "a little project"

 RawkHawk2010 1:26 pm
    Too soon
    Would Trinen use the phrase "radical Islam"?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:27 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:27 pm
    That was Wind Waker's explosion noise.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:27 pm
    Trinen made a massive explosion.
    "Thank you for joining us for Bill's project."
    They're talking about Miitomo.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:27 pm
    I haven't taken a screenshot since the Korok.

 RawkHawk2010 1:27 pm
    Never playing Miitomo again
    Sorry Bill

 Nintendork 13 13 1:28 pm
    "You won't be seeing much in terms of characters or story"
    I like how "characters and story" is a standard phrase within Nintendo now after Sticker Star's Iwata Asks.

 RawkHawk2010 1:29 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:29 pm
    They told us to increase the volume for Pokémon and now there's no point for that in Zelda.

 RawkHawk2010 1:30 pm
    what happens next?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:30 pm
    More Zelda.
    The whole day.
    I think.

 RawkHawk2010 1:31 pm
    people are comparing Breath of the Wild to Dark Souls.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:32 pm
    Without the difficulty?

Nintendork 13 13 1:36 pm
    There is fall damage.
    In this game.
    "The game encourages you to climb." 1:38 pm
    Was that mini-map there before?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:38 pm
    I think.
    I don't remember the timestamp. 1:39 pm
    I'm guessing this gameplay takes place after going to see Zelda, or whoever was talking to Link.

 RawkHawk2010 1:39 pm
    the hell's happening 1:39 pm
    Maybe she unlocks map capability.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:39 pm
    But she'll never unlock music.
    They got a paraglider.
    So I assume there are no rupees.
    Because there's no economy?
    "You don't need to buy anything you just scavenge"
    (not an actual Treehouse quote)
    Clear Skyrim and other open world influence of scavenging random irrelevant stuff. 1:40 pm
    Ya. 1:41 pm
    Hopefully there's less of that in this.

 RawkHawk2010 1:41 pm
    k they fixed the Skyward Sword problem 1:41 pm
    Skyrim's inundated with it.

 RawkHawk2010 1:41 pm
    you don't get a description of an item if it's the 100th time you've picked it up

 Nintendork 13 13 1:41 pm
    Or even the 2nd time. 1:42 pm
    Was that a boar?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:42 pm
    Link is doing a lot better than the kid that accompanied Kratos.
    In God of War last night.
    What's Link holding? 1:42 pm
    A bomb?

 RawkHawk2010 1:42 pm
    so this is like Grand Theft Auto and you can kill whoever you want?
    Even if they're totally innocent?

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Bokoblin camp
Like these innocent Bokoblin campers that just survived a remote bomb. 1:43 pm
    It was a bomb.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:43 pm
    Stream lagging

 RawkHawk2010 1:43 pm
    not for me 1:43 pm
    Me neither.

 RawkHawk2010 1:43 pm
    could link paraglide all the way to that mountain in the background 1:43 pm
    Link stole their dinner!

 RawkHawk2010 1:44 pm
    I like the emphasis of physics

 Nintendork 13 13 1:44 pm
    Well he's paragliding down the mountain.

 RawkHawk2010 1:44 pm
    Reminds me of Nuts & Bolts. 1:44 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:44 pm
    ...with an axe?
    Two types of bombs.
    Cubes (erroneously called squares)
    He got Topaz and Rock Salt.
    "Cannot be eaten in this form"
    There are no Zeppelins in the game.

 RawkHawk2010 1:45 pm
    good to know

 Nintendork 13 13 1:45 pm
    Link just climbing the mountain.

 RawkHawk2010 1:45 pm
    how is he climbing this shit?

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild mountain climbing stamina
Would YOU be able to climb this? 1:45 pm
    sweat dripping off him.

 RawkHawk2010 1:45 pm
    It's at like an 80 degree angle

 Nintendork 13 13 1:46 pm
    I screen'd the 80 degree mountain.

 RawkHawk2010 1:46 pm
    If there's no music
    At least we can listen to Rescue Girl while we run around this place
    Or something.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:46 pm
    I don't think that's appropriate.

 RawkHawk2010 1:47 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:47 pm
    Chiko's scream is so...manly.

 RawkHawk2010 1:47 pm
    did you hear that girl yell in pain
    It sounded like Michelle Obama in bed.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:47 pm know wot that sounds like?

 RawkHawk2010 1:47 pm
    (I dunno what that actually sounds like.)

 Nintendork 13 13 1:48 pm
    There's different weather.
    Enemies sleep in night and you can steal their stuff.

 RawkHawk2010 1:48 pm
    real-time weather change?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:48 pm
    Is Link even a good guy?

 RawkHawk2010 1:48 pm
    Link might be a "blank canvas"
    It'd go with the painting scheme.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:48 pm
    There's an item called "Magnesis"

 RawkHawk2010 1:48 pm
    Let's make Link evil.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:49 pm
    Link climbing a pillar.

 RawkHawk2010 1:49 pm
    "This is like taking candy from a baby...and that's fine by me."

 RawkHawk2010 1:49 pm
    Link just jumped in mid-climb

 Nintendork 13 13 1:49 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:49 pm
    Like five feet

 Nintendork 13 13 1:49 pm
    Sheikah has a zoom-in scope.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sheikah Slate Scope pins zoom
You can pin enemies and locations.

 RawkHawk2010 1:49 pm
    That makes no sense.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:49 pm
    With "pins"

 RawkHawk2010 1:50 pm
    Link can jump as high as he can climbing as when he's on the ground.
    Even Mario can't do that, can he?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:50 pm
    Link is shivering.
    There are rupees. 1:50 pm
    Weather-appropriate clothing?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:50 pm
    There was a rupee symbol.
    So there are barriers to exploration via clothing?

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild cold Quilted Shirt Pouch shivering Link
Poor Link is shivering. 1:51 pm
    The cold can cause you to lose health.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:51 pm
    Frozen ChuChus?

 Nintendork 13 13 1:51 pm
    "White Chuchu Jelly" 1:51 pm
    White ChuChu.

 RawkHawk2010 1:51 pm
    I'm listening to His World in the background fyi.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:51 pm
    The game doesn't CamelCase them.

 RawkHawk2010 1:52 pm
    And it actually fits, sorta. 1:52 pm
    Did Link just end up in StEEP?

 RawkHawk2010 1:52 pm
    Aside from the "IN HIS WORLD, MORE IS LESS" part.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:52 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:52 pm
    Link could use a horse now.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:52 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:53 pm
    Or vehicles.
    print screen that bug

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild penis rock formation cold tundra frozen environment level
I print-screened the phallic rock formation instead.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:53 pm
    ...That's a web page! 1:53 pm
    Gonna paraglide off the top of that?

 RawkHawk2010 1:53 pm
    "Strong Jaw"

 Nintendork 13 13 1:54 pm
    What happened to Loiter Squad? 1:54 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 1:55 pm
    Are they still in the plateau?

 RawkHawk2010 1:55 pm
    "In July 2015, Tyler the Creator stated that Loiter Squad would not be continuing for a fourth season.[2]"

 Nintendork 13 13 1:55 pm
    "I wonder if there's snowboarding"
    (Steep) 1:55 pm
    Well there was in Twilight Princess!

 Nintendork 13 13 1:55 pm
    Head-shooting skeleton dudes.

 RawkHawk2010 1:56 pm
    *TP's "Snowboarding" music plays in my head*

 Nintendork 13 13 1:56 pm

 RawkHawk2010 1:56 pm
    well 1:56 pm
    There IS snowboarding!

 RawkHawk2010 1:56 pm
    I wanna see Link crash. 1:56 pm
    Well, shieldboarding.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:56 pm
    Link also just took Ice Keese Wing.
    "shieldsurfing" official Treehouse term.

 RawkHawk2010 1:56 pm
    This Link is like Captain America

 Nintendork 13 13 1:56 pm
    It degrades your durability.

 RawkHawk2010 1:56 pm
    using his shield for literally everything 1:57 pm
    Now all we need to see is a yeti.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:57 pm
    I wanna know who placed this treasure chest.
    Fire Arrows. 1:57 pm
    Archery possible whilst shieldsurfing. Cool.

 RawkHawk2010 1:57 pm
    Treehouse dudes just made the game look bad.

 RawkHawk2010 1:57 pm
    When they showed Link couldn't set a fucking tree on fire.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:58 pm
    "You can't carry any more melee weapons"

 RawkHawk2010 1:59 pm
    "Maybe I can go back to the Treehouse and burn it."

 Nintendork 13 13 1:59 pm
    "Maybe I can go back---
    Workplace violence?

 RawkHawk2010 2:00 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:00 pm
    Map just revealed Temple of Time. 2:00 pm
    I saw "Forest of Spirits".

 Nintendork 13 13 2:00 pm
    The bomb leveled the trees.

 RawkHawk2010 2:00 pm
    I saw "White Chuchu Jelly"

 Nintendork 13 13 2:00 pm
    You can kill butterflies with arrows.

 RawkHawk2010 2:01 pm
    Enemy designs are very windwakery.
    That's nice.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:01 pm
    At least there's battle music.
    You can take the arms of skeleton Bokoblins
    and beat the rest of the body with it.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Bokoblin arm skeleton bone weapon
Link using the arm to beat the rest of the body. It's badly damaged. When he drops it, THE ARM TWITCHES. 2:02 pm
    Eww, it's twiching!

    "Your Bokoblin Arm is badly damaged"

 RawkHawk2010 2:02 pm
    someone's masturbating to this right now

 Nintendork 13 13 2:02 pm
    Rawk stop

 RawkHawk2010 2:03 pm
    I thought the word "epic" had been retired.  
    I haven't heard it in years.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:04 pm
    Break. More Zelda to come.

RawkHawk2010 2:06 pm
    I just heard someone say
    "dungeons better be in this."
    ...yeah we have no actual confirmation of a dungeon. >.>

 Nintendork 13 13 2:07 pm
    There's the Temple of Time.

 RawkHawk2010 2:07 pm
    That's a dungeon?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:07 pm
    Who knows.

 RawkHawk2010 2:07 pm
    I thought that's just where the Master Sword is. 2:09 pm
    I thought the Temple of Time was the ruin Link was at earlier.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:09 pm
    We dunno.
    BACK 2:09 pm
    They're back.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:09 pm
    Hi Audrey. ^.^
    "We're going up close and personal with some shrines~" - Audrey

 RawkHawk2010 2:10 pm
    who is audrey
    do we know her from somewhere

 Nintendork 13 13 2:10 pm
    From previous Treehouse Lives.

 RawkHawk2010 2:10 pm
    "I'm a known wanderer." 2:10 pm
    Lass Audrey.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:10 pm
    She's the one who we transcribed with tildes a lot.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:11 pm
    "Shrine Oman Au" 2:11 pm
    I'm glad stamina recharges quickly.
    Hate that in other games.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:11 pm
    Beating shrines gets you the paraglider.
    Shrines are "trials"
    The Sheikah Slate is like an ID card.

 RawkHawk2010 2:12 pm
    so is this a dungeon

 Nintendork 13 13 2:12 pm
    "Over a hundred shrines"
    "and there's dungeons and there's a lot"

 RawkHawk2010 2:12 pm
    Oman Au

 Nintendork 13 13 2:12 pm
    "Magnesis Trial"

 RawkHawk2010 2:13 pm
    i like the constellation motif

 Nintendork 13 13 2:13 pm
    Rune abilities.

 RawkHawk2010 2:13 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:13 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:13 pm
    the amiibo symbol

 Nintendork 13 13 2:14 pm
    Told you.

 RawkHawk2010 2:14 pm
    yeah that's not disbelief-suspending at all

 Nintendork 13 13 2:14 pm
    "Link is drunk with power~" 2:14 pm
    So Link is basically Magneto with this ability.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:15 pm
    "Let's see what kinda mayhem we can do with this~~~"
    "I can't get past this big wall of stones~"

 RawkHawk2010 2:15 pm
    This is like Mumbo's Wand from Nuts & Bolts.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:15 pm
    The metal block is used as a shield.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:15 pm
    And pushes weird spiders.
    Into water.

 RawkHawk2010 2:16 pm
    so they're advertising infinite solutions?
    That's Nuts & Bolts as shit!

 Nintendork 13 13 2:17 pm
    Grabbing treasure chests from afar with Magnesis.

 RawkHawk2010 2:17 pm
    a mysterious dood

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Oman Au Shrine
The rest of the shrine people look like this, too.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:17 pm
    Some walls are pretty much smooth and 90 degrees.
    Mysterious voice is this mysterious dude. 2:18 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:18 pm
    Wait is that what he said? 2:18 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:18 pm
    So Ganon confirmed? 2:18 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:18 pm
    This reminds me of a Star Fox Adventures Force Point Temple.
    That dude was basically a Krazoa. 2:19 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:19 pm
    Why is this one girl talking so sensually?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:19 pm
    Because she's Audrey!~~

 RawkHawk2010 2:20 pm
    "I'm a new Link~, with new ABILITYYYYYYYYYYYS~"
    The other one.
    Or did Audrey say that?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:20 pm
    The one playing is Audrey.

 RawkHawk2010 2:20 pm
    who's the other person? 2:20 pm
    I wish I had time to read some of these item descriptions.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:20 pm
    I dunno.
    "Oooh, treasure~ Prime steak~"

 RawkHawk2010 2:21 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:21 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:22 pm
    She's gonna hurt the Bokoblins.
    "I deserved that~"
    When a Bokoblin defended itself.
    And smacked Link.

 RawkHawk2010 2:23 pm
    i'm kind of zoning out

 Nintendork 13 13 2:23 pm
    "They get a lot of my anger~"

 Nintendork 13 13 2:24 pm
    Wait wtf is happening 2:24 pm
    That thing's got targeting lasers. <_<

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild shrine guardian laser
The next frame after this? HUGE WALL-DESTROYING LASER. (See later in this log.)

    Shrine Ja Baij

 Nintendork 13 13 2:26 pm
    Was that whole conversation to cover loading time? 2:26 pm
    Looks like bombs have a cooldown.
    But they're unlimited.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:28 pm
    "Fun fact: Link can explode." 2:29 pm
    Like is Pikipekish.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:29 pm
    ...What? 2:29 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:29 pm
    "Link is peckish."

 Nintendork 13 13 2:29 pm
    I know what a Pikipek is from Pokémon

 RawkHawk2010 2:30 pm
    i dont

 Nintendork 13 13 2:30 pm
    We just saw it like 2 hours ago.

 RawkHawk2010 2:30 pm
    the hummingbird/

 Nintendork 13 13 2:30 pm
    The bird that got REGISTERED.

 RawkHawk2010 2:30 pm
    o 2:30 pm
    Will this guy mention Ganon again?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:31 pm
    This one looks the same.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:31 pm
    "Shrines are supplementary to dungeons"
    No Ganon. 2:31 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:31 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:32 pm
    Sam is trying to talk about how tragic the ruins are, atmospherically and in lore.
    And Audrey is just concerned about how she hasn't killed every single enemy.

 RawkHawk2010 2:33 pm
    tragic AND poignant

RawkHawk2010 2:36 pm
    However, instead of entertaining the idea of the player being able to choose the hero Link's gender, Aonuma said his team considered what they deemed to be the simplest option; making princess Zelda the lead character. "We thought about it," said Aonuma, "and decided that if we're going to have a female protagonist it's simpler to have Princess Zelda as the main character."
    This idea was ultimately rejected, because according to Aonuma "...if we have princess Zelda as the main character who fights, then what is Link going to do? Taking into account that, and also the idea of the balance of the Triforce, we thought it best to come back to this [original] makeup."

 Nintendork 13 13 2:36 pm
    Audrey returns.
    Focus on weapons and combat.

 RawkHawk2010 2:37 pm
    so if there was gonna be a lady protag aonuma was gonna go with my idea.
    Fuck "Linkle"

    justifying stealing food cuz "they were gonna waste it"
    Sounds like Trump and oil. 2:40 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:40 pm
    NOT THE BEES 2:41 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:41 pm
    ludwig did you print screen the bees

 Nintendork 13 13 2:41 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:41 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:41 pm
    I think I broke something

 RawkHawk2010 2:42 pm
    you and link both
    A sound gauge?
    that's actually a good idea

 RawkHawk2010 2:42 pm
    unless that's why there's no music
    then it's not 2:43 pm
    Wow, they're actually trying with the whole stealth angle.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:43 pm
    Link's breaking weapons and I'm breaking Blogger. <_<

 RawkHawk2010 2:43 pm
    i don't like how there's so many items and such a limited inventory
    This is gonna be EarthBound syndrome.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:44 pm
    That's standard open worlding.

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm
    where most of the game is spent throwing stuff away
    Well it's not good.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:44 pm
    Or else you'll have infinite health. 2:44 pm
    Maybe there are inventory expansion items.
    Like the wallets.

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm
    that's why there shouldn't be as much acquirable shit 2:44 pm
    But for items capacity.

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm
    Link is picking something up every ten fucking seconds.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:45 pm
    I like this spear. 2:45 pm
    I saw him pick up a cricket.
    (TP bug collecting in this game?)

 Nintendork 13 13 2:45 pm
    Bokoblin Arm is back.
    Trying to grab his butt.

 RawkHawk2010 2:46 pm
    (told you)

 Nintendork 13 13 2:46 pm
    (no stop)

 RawkHawk2010 2:47 pm
    "Skull House", big sitcom in the 80's
    That's one of the most forced Treehouse jokes I've ever heard.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:47 pm
    You can mix Keese Wings with BUGS to make something useful.

 RawkHawk2010 2:48 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:49 pm
    Bokoblin Arm discarded.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:49 pm
    2:30 AM in-game.

 RawkHawk2010 2:49 pm
    Now the blood can rush back up to Audrey's head.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild cool guys don't look at explosions skull house TNT bomb
Cool guys don't look at explosions.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:49 pm
    Now 2:35 AM.
    Does Link sleep?
    Time apparently moves in 5 minute intervals.
    Bomb arrows.
    I love the explosions.
    These steak/campfires are from Twilight Princess.
    They're victim-blaming the Bokoblins for sleeping next to TNT.

 RawkHawk2010 2:50 pm
    This is what everyone thought Twilight Princess was gonna be in the pre-release hype phases

 Nintendork 13 13 2:51 pm
    They're only 10 years late.

 RawkHawk2010 2:51 pm
    Back when Nintendo was bragging about how Hyrule Field would take 45 minutes to cross

 Nintendork 13 13 2:51 pm
    wtf 2:51 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:51 pm
    Link jumps mid-air and caused his own Witch Time.
    To shoot Fire Arrows after totally missing the boulder smash.
    Apparently that happens whenever you jump off a cliff.
    And try to shoot an arrow.
    Refills arrows by recycling the ones enemies shoot at you.
    Assuming they miss.
    He just front-flipped over a Bokoblin. 2:53 pm
    And then shieldsurfed for no reason.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:54 pm
    Link spending a lot of time just running.
    As you'd expect.
    Hope they let us hold a lot of shields.
    Another laser guardian.
    Your Traveler Bow broke!

 RawkHawk2010 2:55 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    Link taking his Sheikah Slate out to get actual hit point numbers.
    Fire Arrow did only 20 damage and the guardian has 500 HP.
    There's critical hits.
    MAGNESIS 2:55 pm
    Link's about to die.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:55 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    And then he got obliterated by a laser.

 RawkHawk2010 2:56 pm
    i did something like this in Nuts once.

 RawkHawk2010 2:56 pm
    After I lost my vehicle mid-challenge

 Nintendork 13 13 2:56 pm
    Got screenshot of Link being obliterated by a laser.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Guardian laser explosion shrine
Well, this is a good moment for Treehouse to have a break. 2:56 pm
    "Quick! Cut away before Link dies!"

 Nintendork 13 13 2:56 pm
    I just heard what sounded like game over music.
    I'm hungrrry

 RawkHawk2010 2:57 pm
    Color Splash confirmed for October 7th.

Nintendork 13 13 2:57 pm it's gonna suck.

Nintendork 13 13 3:01 pm
    We're back?
    ...I dunno what that was.
    They left their mic on.
    Officially back.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:03 pm
    Trinen holding a Wolf Link amiibo.
    Telling us what the amiibo will do in Breath of the Wild.
    But first, a video of what it does in Twilight Princess HD.

 RawkHawk2010 3:04 pm
    i didn't know the cave of shadows was even a thing

 Nintendork 13 13 3:04 pm
    amiibo rune
    Technical difficul-.. no

 RawkHawk2010 3:05 pm
    is donkey kong gonna be in this

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    Brings Wolf Link into the game as a partner character.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Wolf Link partner
Wolf Link is reborn! ...And so early in the morning.

 RawkHawk2010 3:05 pm
    is this gonna be dku 3:05 pm
    A partner?!

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    Typically Zelda games have a partner character.
    Link is generally alone.
    But Wolf Link will be a partner.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    Wolf Link helps with combat. 3:05 pm
    I didn't even notice the lack of one in this game.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:05 pm
    Has his own HP gauge.
    Can Link ride him?

 RawkHawk2010 3:06 pm
    so it's like The Last Of Us and God of War? 3:06 pm
    Does this confirm this games takes place in the TP branch of the timeline, then?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:06 pm
    If you get close to a wild animal

 RawkHawk2010 3:06 pm
    But instead of a little girl or a little boy it's a little wolf?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:06 pm
    He can sense meat?
    He still has the chain.
    He's attacking a boar.
    And converted him to steak. <_<

 RawkHawk2010 3:07 pm
    what if every amiibo can be a partner?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:07 pm
    Trinen has another amiibo.

 RawkHawk2010 3:07 pm
    imagine mario out here

 Nintendork 13 13 3:07 pm
    ...A 3D Printed model of one.
    On his four legs.
    Trinen has a manufacturer's model of amiibo.

 RawkHawk2010 3:08 pm
    lol I thought that boar was an amiibo at first

 Nintendork 13 13 3:08 pm
    Link just slashed the Bokoblin's crotch.
    10 months to a year to make an amiibo.
    I like how Trinen knows how Nintendo's manufacturing works.

 RawkHawk2010 3:09 pm
    this is the first actual good use of amiibo i've ever seen

 Nintendork 13 13 3:10 pm
    Wait, did they say that
    The amount of hearts on your Wolf Link amiibo in Twilight Princess
    equals the number of hearts he has when he's summoned here? 3:10 pm
    So you can't get Wolf Link here unless you beat Cave of Shadows first? >.>

 Nintendork 13 13 3:10 pm
    (Wolf Link can be spawned once every 24 hours in real-time)
    I think you can, but he'll show up with only 3 hearts. 3:10 pm
    Ah, phew.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:11 pm
    You and Wolf Link can be seperated. 3:11 pm
    That'd be stupid otherwise.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:11 pm
    But you have a whistle.

 RawkHawk2010 3:11 pm
    This reminds me of Tricky. 3:11 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:11 pm
    yeah, lol

 Nintendork 13 13 3:11 pm
    "Wolf Link isn't the only amiibo" 3:11 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:11 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:11 pm
    "We actually have a few more brand new amiibo"

 Nintendork 13 13 3:11 pm
    Archer Link

Archer Link amiibo The Legend of Zelda Nintendo
It's Archer Link! Trinen says he's one of the most detailed amiibo.

 RawkHawk2010 3:12 pm
    is archer link gonna be a partner 3:12 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:12 pm
    I hope not.
    Trinen has a Zelda pin.
    Link on horse
    Rider Link.

Rider Link amiibo Nintendo Legend of Zelda horse hood
The Rider Link amiibo. 3:13 pm
    Nice hood.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:14 pm
    "I'm not touching it because I like my job and I don't want to break things."
    The hell is that?
    Guardian amiibo.
    The laser beam thing. 3:14 pm
    I want that.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Guardian amiibo
For all of your tentacle dreams.

 RawkHawk2010 3:14 pm
    looks like something that'll get broke

 Nintendork 13 13 3:14 pm
    First amiibo with poseable parts.
    You can bend the legs.
    Nothing else they wanna show with Wolf Link.
    So is this the first "partner" you can't talk to?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:16 pm
    Is next?!

 RawkHawk2010 3:16 pm
    oh lawd

 Nintendork 13 13 3:16 pm
    Woah their booth.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Nintendo E3 booth Bokoblin Archer Tower
I told you they were gonna make their booth really cool. 3:18 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:23 pm
    I want to eat but I'm afraid I'll miss Miyamoto.
    Can't they tell us how long these breaks are? 3:24 pm
    Imma have to sleep right after this.
    Practically dead on my feet here.
    So to speak.

 RawkHawk2010 3:24 pm
    Open your eyes. 3:25 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:25 pm
    gonna pee
    I could've heated up chikin by now.
    Gonna try 3:27 pm
    GO GO GO

 Nintendork 13 13 3:27 pm
    Hopefully Miyamoto is taking photo ops 3:28 pm
    "We'll be right back" sign disappeared.
    Here we go.

 RawkHawk2010 3:28 pm
    LOL 3:29 pm
    "Getting back to the roots of the original Zelda"

 Nintendork 13 13 3:29 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:29 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:29 pm
    Wot's he said 3:29 pm

 RawkHawk2010 3:29 pm
    I felt like Miyamoto wouldn't have a ribbon. 3:29 pm
    that's been translated.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:29 pm
    Well maybe by the time it takes for him to finish talking in Japanese

 RawkHawk2010 3:29 pm
    "Do I really need this?"

 Nintendork 13 13 3:29 pm
    I can pick up the chikin from the microwave.

 RawkHawk2010 3:30 pm
    Miyamoto isn't supposed to have anything unless it's absolutely necessary
    He shouldn't even be wearing clothes.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:30 pm
    I don't care about why
    Link wakes up I'm getting food

 RawkHawk2010 3:31 pm
    is this the original Zelda's Link after he fell asleep and hibernated? 3:31 pm
    Is that what happened at the end?

 RawkHawk2010 3:31 pm
    no idea
    but if it did then this Link really would be Captain America.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:32 pm
    Wot'd they say?

 RawkHawk2010 3:33 pm
    they're maing parallels between this link and the first link

 Nintendork 13 13 3:33 pm
    (N-Not th-that I care!)
    Why is Trinen laughing? 3:33 pm
    I remember Zelda in the second game being alseep for a really long time.
    Maybe now it is Link's turn.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:34 pm
    Based on my experience with Capture the Confederate Flag, dropping players in without exposition really confuses them.
    And they give up without trying.

 RawkHawk2010 3:34 pm
    i hear screaming

 Nintendork 13 13 3:34 pm
    How do these guys get away with it? 3:35 pm
    There was a lot of cryptic nonsense in the original game.
    Hope they didn't bring THAT back.

 RawkHawk2010 3:35 pm
    who is chico

 Nintendork 13 13 3:36 pm
    The Treehouse woman who laughs like a man.

 RawkHawk2010 3:36 pm
    "Silent Shroom"
    o 3:36 pm
    Hey, actual forests to walk around in. Like TP was supposed to have.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:37 pm
    Did I just hear Miyamoto say "Chiko didn't have any arrows."

 RawkHawk2010 3:37 pm
    all i hear is japahanese

 Nintendork 13 13 3:38 pm
    Miyamoto wants to be "executive producer"
    "Just making sure Link's movement is natural"
    (As opposed to a penguin)
    "I also look after the financials."

 RawkHawk2010 3:39 pm
    because all miyamoto cares about is MONEY

 Nintendork 13 13 3:39 pm
    New Super Mari0 Bros. 2? 3:40 pm
    Link just stripped.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:40 pm
    I like how it's not a spoiler that Ganon is the final boss.
    Wind-based combat.
    Blowing wildfire to the enemies.

 RawkHawk2010 3:41 pm
    where is this in the timeline
    Bill loves to burn Bushes. 3:41 pm
    In Wolf Link canon?
    In this?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:41 pm
    Or Korok canon? 3:42 pm
    Yet if this is the original Link...
    Yeah, it could be anywhere.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:42 pm
    Why are they asking about Zelda NES?
    That was 30 years ago!
    He's probably just making stuff up now.

    k i think we've seen all of zelda

 Nintendork 13 13 3:43 pm
    Miyamoto gave freedom to the designers and programmers for Breath of the Wind.
    Well we need to wait for him to go. 3:43 pm
    Yeah, that ruin WAS the Temple of Time.

    Treehouse person's favourite moment in Zelda was feeding meat.

 RawkHawk2010 3:46 pm
    notice how the quality of Treehouse Live plummets right as Miyamoto gets involved.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:46 pm
    That's....actually true.

 RawkHawk2010 3:46 pm
    Shigeru Miyamoto
    Nothing. But Trouble.
    (read that in Trump's voice.)

 Nintendork 13 13 3:46 pm
    "I haven't actually beat the game." - Miyamoto

 Nintendork 13 13 3:46 pm
    Because it's not done or because...

 RawkHawk2010 3:48 pm
    better things to do

 Nintendork 13 13 3:48 pm
    Miyamoto was inspired for Zelda by being in the boy scouts?

 RawkHawk2010 3:48 pm
    like ruining star fox >.>
    Miyamoto was a boy scout?

 Nintendork 13 13 3:48 pm
    I thought it was because he was wandering into Japanese caves.
    Dude can't get his backstory straight. 3:48 pm
    He's retconning his own life now.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:48 pm
    He climbed mountains in the boy scouts.
    And saw a lake.

 RawkHawk2010 3:49 pm
    I don't believe this.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:49 pm
    He's implying he boy scouted alone, too.
    Link on a raft.
    Wind Waker-esque.

 RawkHawk2010 3:50 pm
    deku leaf

 Nintendork 13 13 3:50 pm
    The raft isn't moving with the KOROK Leaf.

 RawkHawk2010 3:50 pm
    and the player is fucking up
    keeps attacking when trying to blow wind

 Nintendork 13 13 3:50 pm

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild raft Korok leaf
With enough effort, we can get this thing moving with a leaf.

 RawkHawk2010 3:50 pm
    good thing this isn't live

 RawkHawk2010 3:51 pm
    It'd be like the Skyward Sword presentation, but with less plausible excuses
    (Oh wait it is live.)
    I meant, "good thing it's not on a stage", but that's not really correct either.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:51 pm
    Sam keeps talking about vacations.
    Hawaii, and hiking.
    Link can eat steak while frozen solid.
    Miyamoto does the arrow thing too.
    With collecting arrows from enemies.
    And they're acting like that's the smartest thing they've heard all day.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:53 pm
    Must respect Miyamoto-san!
    That said, the fact Miyamoto is involved in animations... Is a good sign for his movie-making sub-career within Nintendo.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:56 pm
    "Is there anything else you'd like to add, Miyamoto?"
    They're ready to get rid of him! ...But Miyamoto has a long answer.
    Miyamoto said he's lazy and didn't want to collect all the items.
    But the dev team insisted on it.
    And Miyamoto ended up liking it.
    Treehouse stream still continuing but I'm tired.

 RawkHawk2010 3:58 pm
    yes he's gone

 Nintendork 13 13 3:58 pm
    Do you think the readers will forgive us if he close the log for the day?

 RawkHawk2010 3:58 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 3:58 pm
    But it's been over 4 hours of Zelda.

 RawkHawk2010 3:59 pm
    we can't end on miyamoto

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild shieldsurfing riding on shield snowboarding
Can we end on shieldsurfing? It's the coolest thing in the game.

 Nintendork 13 13 3:59 pm
    Why not?
    Vortex is gonna die.
    He might've already.

 RawkHawk2010 4:00 pm
    Very tired. I'm gonna fall off my chair like Link fell off that cliff.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:00 pm
    This log is gonna crash people's computers.

KoopaTV is proud to provide you with coverage of Nintendo's E3! Stay tuned for even more. Just not today. We're done. And we might not even be alive anymore.

The first Treehouse Live footage of the day was for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Click here to see.
KoopaTV loves the Zelda series music, so we wrote an article about how... unfortunately it appears to be that Breath of the Wild is being thin on it.

  1. I know that Zelda was supposed to be the big highlight and all, but Paper Mario: Color Trash has a release date! It makes "Breath of the Wild" look like "Breath of the Dying." Plus, there's going to be a new Mario Party! I don't see why Nintendo wasted so much time and energy featuring a dull, musicless sequel when they had so much more potential within them.

    To top it all off, there are 2nd Mario series amiibo coming soon! Just when you thought the craze had ended, take for it Nintendo to bring back the magic of toys-to-life. I for one cannot wait for all that's in store. October cannot come soon enough!
