Check Out These Stunning Pictures From Nintendo’s Zelda Booth at E3!

Zelda fans at E3 not only had the chance to be the first to play Breath of the Wild-- they also got to wander through a life-size exhibit on the new game!

Nintendo's focus at E3 this year was almost completely on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild--and for good reason. With stunning graphics and new, exciting gameplay, the new Zelda title promises to be one of the most anticipated games of 2017.

The hype doesn't end with Nintendo's E3 presentation, though. Nintendo's booth at E3 was also devoted to showcasing Breath of the Wild, including life-sized models of the game's heroes, monsters, and breathtaking scenery. If you weren't one of the lucky few that got to visit the booth last week, don't fret! The staff at several news sources were able to take pictures while they toured the booth, and have posted many online. Here are a few of the best.

And if you have the time, be sure to check out the video above for a full tour of the booth, courtesy of Nintendo!

Here we start off with a lovely shot of our hero taking on a powerful-looking monster boss. Look at that gorgeous painted scenery, too. 

Note: That grass you see? It's real!

Another shot of our hero. Perhaps the bow will play a bigger role in this game.

Ooh, I wonder what those serpents symbolize. Guess we'll have to wait for the game to find out!

In the middle of it all were the screens set up with the game demo. Look at these lucky humans. Also: are those castle ruins?

The exhibit ran on a continuous 24-minute day and night cycle, the same used in Ocarina of Time and other games in the series. Sound effects changed in addition to lighting.

More lovely ruins. I can't wait to explore these in-game.

Here's our hero's sustenance. Anyone else excited about the new foraging and cooking aspects of the game?

What could the treasure box hold? Time will tell.
