Nintendo has released 40 minutes of new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gameplay footage on its YouTube channel. The footage is part of a segment Nintendo Japan created together with Fuji TV, a Japanese TV channel.


In the 40 minute gameplay video Japanese comedian Masaru Hamaguchi plays game as he roams around the game's landscapes. The video does not show any story content or dungeons.
DuringHamaguchi's gameplay session he has to complete several tasks within the world of the game. The tasks showcase the game's new physics engine as well as several new gameplay mechanics.

Last week Nintendo also released several new gameplay videos when it updated the Japanese version of the game's official website.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is scheduled to launch in 2017 for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Wii U.
