A brand new title in The Legend of Zelda series for Wii U will re-introduce open-world gameplay on a massive scale when it launches worldwide in 2015.
Revealed for the first time in the Nintendo Digital Event, the new game in The Legend of Zelda series will feature a brand new open-world Hyrule, allowing players to travel to any part of the region they like, whether on foot or on horseback.
Series producer Eiji Aonuma stated that, rather than featuring traditional puzzles, players would find challenge in first deciding where to go in the world, then in finding various ways of getting there.
The new open-world aspect of the game is based on classic Zelda titles such as the very first game in the series, which featured one whole Hyrule with no smaller areas within.
The Legend of Zelda launches worldwide in 2015, only on Wii U.
