Nintendo has finally lifted the veil off its major Zelda open world project.

For the first time since Ocarina of Time, Nintendo have finally changed the conventions that have restricted 3D Zelda games these past years. Players begin their journey in a mysterious chamber where Link must discover the world around him. Based on the latest gameplay live footage this is what we were able to learn:

Armors, weapons, and items now work in typical RPG form. Meaning that you can discover equip a wide range gear from a simple shirt to heavy armor. Same goes with weapons as you will be able to start with a simple tree branch and work your way up to swords and axes.Different regions require different types of clothes (mountains need heavier clothes)

Armors and weapons also have stats.
