Nintendo has posted several Breath of the Wild videos, teasing fans on social media who can’t get enough Zelda. Some may take this as a bit of a troll move on Nintendo’s part since the game doesn’t come out until at least March, but every second more that is shown of the title is nothing less than splendid.  Posting on both Twitter and Facebook, Nintendo showed off two different aspects of gameplay in their short but sweet Breath of the Wild videos.

In the first video, Link is shown exploring one of the many shrines found in the game, the Shrine Oman Au. Here our favorite hero shows off his magnesis ability in order to solve puzzles, a staple of the series. The second video, posted on Nintendo’s official Facebook page, deals more with the exploration and open-world aspect of the game. It shows Link picking up the Woodcutter’s Axe, mowing down a tree, and then using the said tree in order to cross over an abyss. It’s unlike anything we’ve seen in a Zelda game, showing the intricacies of traversing this new Hyrule.

These videos are short but sweet and furthers our excitement for Breath of the Wild. Our time with it at E3 was nothing short of spectacular and we savored every moment. That being said, it is curious that Nintendo is releasing all these short videos at this juncture when the game won’t even come out until the Nintendo NX launches. It could be that they have something else up their sleeves; we’ll just have to stay tuned. Breath of the Wild is one of the most anticipated games of all time, as it takes all the best elements of Zelda and puts them together, not unlike Ocarina of Time did. It has an intriguing narrative, total freedom with plenty of exploration, and some brilliant puzzle solving mechanics. The game will be brilliant, but it’s a shame that the release window is so far away.
