Well, there we have it - Nintendo showed us many hours of footage from the newly named The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild after a short opening salvo of Pokémon Sun and Moon. The Treehouse team, with special guests including Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma, showed a lot of the underlying mechanics and gameplay of the 2017 Wii U / NX release. The area on show was also impressive in scope, which is remarkably only a fraction of the game world (according to Eiji Aonuma).

From the initial reveal trailer to the extensive showcase from the Treehouse team, we saw a lot of what the title will have to offer. Outside of showcasing the game there were few 'gotcha' reveals in the live stream, outside of new amiibo, though Nintendo's press release and websites did reveal some release dates and even Mario Party Star Rush for 3DS, which will be shown on day two (Paper Mario: Color Splash will also be shown off).

We'll have a lot of features, editorials and - yes - hands on impressions in the hours and days to come, but first off we want to know what you think. Did Nintendo triumph with its day of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Let us know in the polls and comments below.
