Nintendo has released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The footage was announced by means of Nintendo’s Twitter account, and with 4 minutes of footage, the trailer shows protagonist, Link, travel through the sky by means of a paraglider, not only to traverse the map, but also as an attack strategy.

An interesting feature when gliding is being able to switch another weapon for a second or two to perform an attack, while also able to use the fire arrow to create an updraft and being able to glide further. Along with being able to attack enemies from the sky using his bow and arrow, Link is also able to affect area damage when slamming to the ground with his sword. All of these skills, however, deplete the stamina upon descent, but refills when not doing anything but gliding once again. The gameplay shows far more attacking maneuvers from what was released as part of the E3 trailer. Link is able to use fire, bombs, arrows, and a number of other objects found around the map while attacking enemies.
