Arguably the most anticipated game of 2016, ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ debuted at this year’s E3.

The game was so big, in fact, that Nintendo dedicated its entire booth to displaying the game. Luckily, Polygon got a chance to sit down with the Wii U version of the title and they walked away with a ton of gameplay footage to tease us until the game drops on both the Wii U and the NX in 2017.

The footage contains nearly an hour of link running around half-naked and somewhat fire-obsessed. It’s a significant departure from the Zelda games of the past, but I, for one, can’t wait to get my hands Link’s first fully open world adventure.
