Link Shows Off Swimming, Snacks, And Swordplay At The Game Awards 2016

In a video at the Game Awards 2016, Eiji Aonuma set the stage for a Nintendo Treehouse look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

During the journey, Link attempts to find a special shrine. Link quickly finds the Zonai ruins, where he battles some creatures with a bow. After taking a few blows, Link needs a snack so he chows on some greens. Link scales a cliff, swims through some water, fires off some arrows (he's running low!), finds some loot, and eventually makes his way to the shrine.

Link executes a flurry rush, breaks his sword, finds some more weapons and hotswaps to a spear. There are bombs, some battles with some unfriendly creatures, and some cool Moblin clubs.
