New, 7 comments

And now, your moment of zen

Nintendo updated its official Japanese website for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild this morning, giving viewers another in-depth look at the game’s weather system. Watch below to see four minutes of the varying conditions you can expect to see in-game.

The new video, which is unlisted on Nintendo’s YouTube channel, includes a demonstration of how the Hyrule in Breath of the Wild transitions from an idyllic, temperate climate to a heavy storm filled with lightning bolts, before settling once more in its original state.

Nintendo previously uploaded a much longer look at how weather works in the next Zelda game back in June, during E3 2016. The earlier video, above, shows Link standing on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the land of Hyrule during what appears to be an in-game day-to-night cycle. Beginning at dawn, it takes almost 24 full minutes to reach its crescendo, each minute representing one hour in real time. You can see that video above.

There are also two new trailers for Breath of the Wild on the company’s Japanese YouTube channel, which Nintendo uploaded ahead of today’s NX announcement. More information about the console is expected to come out of the console’s trailer reveal today at 10 a.m. ET.

Breath of the Wild is slated to be released in March 2017 on both Wii U and NX.
