Debut gameplay of the new Legend of Zelda is set for June 14
Today, Nintendo released details on their E3 showing this year. The first day, June 14, will be dedicated to the new Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Wii U. A livestream with Nintendo Treehouse will be held to showcase world premiere gameplay of the new title.
Here are the Day 1 details :
Nintendo’s kickoff to the E3 trade show begins at 9 a.m. PT, with an introduction by Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime and the world’s first look at live gameplay of The Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U console. Viewers can also catch the first live gameplay of the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games.
Fans have been looking forward to new details to possibly address rumors -- one such rumor being that the new Link will be a female character.
Given past comments made by the series producer, Eiji Aonuma, speculation upon the gender of Link began. Then came the character Linkle in Hyrule Warriors, whom appears to be a female version of the series' hero. This continued to support the notion that fans maybe seeing a female lead. It could also be likely that players maybe able to select a gender as well.
More details on the Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be shown next week Tuesday.
