A (more than likely fake) leak mentioned that you get "Breath of (Air/Wind/Fire/Water)" items from completing the dungeons, and that there's also an end game one called Breath of Renewal.

We don't know yet. The EDGE review implied one of them had to do with controlling wind or doing something to the paraglider (the phrasing was something like "it makes traversal a breeze (literally)") and the others were possibly combat related powers? In IGN's most recent video (the 10 new things one) underneath the d-pad on the HUD at one point you could see an icon for the elephant beast with an "x1" next to it.

They better god damn be aware. A lot of the scenes we've seen look like princess Mononoke, even Link's outfit and haircut isn't too far off. Folks have been saying it reminds them of the film since like 2015.

Wait...I have ignored most media so far.

So this one is special? I had no hopes for Big N doing the open world thingy right but it seems like we have a hit right here!?

I'd be so fucking happy as an old fan. Please be great. The game *looks* like a dream come true. Quite Ghibli-esque.

The last launch game with this kind of buzz was Mario 64. Edge thinks this Zelda has finally dethroned Ocarina. Take that as you will.

nothing yet. We've seen unique weapons though. Makes sense that unique weapons would be able to be fixed.

I don't know if this is exactly how it works, but some weapons have a normal base and then you can find the same weapon but it has a 'Durability Up' status added to it. Some of the players have talked about having weapons that were 'stronger than normal' and also mentioned that those Korok seeds have something to do with crafting/making weapons stronger.

Overall I think the system works like Dark Cloud, except a lot faster and a weapon breaking doesn't mean you lose 50 hours of gameplay.

EDIT: pics or didnt

This video shows Link riding through a location I hadn't seen before, Fort Hateno, watch when he rides through the gate. The landscape on the other side is breathtaking and surprising.

If an item isn't broken yet, you can most likely increase its durability, or find items in the overworld with their durability already enhanced.

No idea but I would take a guess for the Master Sword it would have durability of something to the effect of "it breaks" but you can repair it, sort of like the "Giant's Knife" from Ocarina?

Huh, I noticed in a French video that two bridges had names of "Arfan" and "Aquilus." I wondered if that was the French localization for something familiar (since the Switch event demo had shown a Gleeok Bridge in English), and lo and behold, Arfan and Aquilus are the French localized names for Owlan and Eagus, two of the residents of Skyloft. That's a neat connection.

There's also a Sahasra Bridge and a Digdogg Bridge, so tons of locations named after past characters and bosses.

A timeline placement after AoL would allow them to reuse the OoT Sage names (Saria, Darunia, Nabooru) for towns and villages again, and also be far enough in the timeline to flesh out the world as much as they please.

So, has the game already properly leaked, with people in the wild playing through? The impressions so far seem to be "just" gameplay stuff, but not huge story and game progression revelations like "you play only the first ~10 hours as Link, then he dies and Zelda takes over". Or the game is just the giant sandbox that it has been presented as and there is nothing to spoil in that sense, besides weapons, bosses etc.

Aonuma says that this takes place in a Hyrule that has seen many attacks by Ganon and we know that Link has been dead for 100 years, so you'd have to fit a lot of Zelda games in 100 years if it was the same Link. That or there are some big retcons.

Afaik it's somewhere after ALTTP, since one if the towns is called after a wise man that only appears in ALTTP en ALBW (don't have the name with me, on mobile).
That would place it somewhere near the NES games which makes sense with how they have been making the connection to the original one.

Sahasrahla

That would be my guess as well. Looks like they finally made a game that takes place after Zelda II
Could stil be after ALBW but before the original as well, I guess, but I think placing it after II makes more sense with Hyrule in ruins.

Seems likely that dungeon info leak was real, though I'm not keen on the names, elephants don't have hooves!
There's some pictures in the volcano area showing an elephant HUD icon in the top left, which might be some sort of gauge connected to entering the dungeon.

Not picking on you, but this is a pet peeve of mine. Hyrule is not Earth, so Hyrulian verison of elephants could have hooves. I mean elves, fish people, bird people, rock people, dog people, lizard people, and pig people don't exist.

Well... in the above pastebin it has "MiniGame_SmashGolf_SetRetryPos" :D

There seems to be around 80 ish enemy movesets in the paste bin. It's definitely not as much as say Dark Souls or Witcher but the enemy designs seem very well considered and the scenario design that utilizes them seems incredibly varied so I think most will be accepting of this.
