Re-confirms simultaneous launch on Wii U and NX in 2017. Specific month not confirmed. it WILL be focus of 2016' Nintendo E3 presence.

Remember when we got the first Skyward Sword art?

Also at an ungodly hour out of nowhere.

Is link wearing a charging battery fanny pack? I want this to be a Link To The Future! I wonder if anyone will uncover anything. Any Zelda fans here wanna compare things from the art to prior games for clues? Thats a Sheikah symbol, right?

Wonder if that trick arrow hints at anything?

Oh, and I bet the tablet thing with an eye is going to be some sort of viewer portal that you use the Wii U gamepad for. Maybe a remote viewer that works with the arrowhead.

But how to realise the same thing for the NX?

Some kind of book on his belt? (Looks like male Link here at least) I would be very happy if the in-game art style was made a bit darker to reflect this style, that'd be cooool.

I always played through most of Ocarina of Time with the Zora Tunic, so I'm more than happy with this.

Not sure that it's a book. Looks like it's the same sort of technology as the the arrowhead.

I thought this was coming out this year for WiiU?

So launch date for NX is confirmed for March 2017 along with Zelda?

This is quite a bomb to drop out of nowhere.

It is annoying me greatly that I can see parts of his boots that should be hidden through his thighs.

It's beautiful art otherwise.
