After announcing that "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" has gone gold, Nintendo released a new trailer entitled "Guard" to keep the hype going. To be specific, there are 3 trailers, "Guard," "Run," and "Live" released on the Japanese website of the video game company. There is an eerie yet intimate feel to the "Guard" trailer. Check it out below.
What you will immediately notice in "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" trailer is the lack of a soundtrack. WWG reports that the music has been embedded on Nintendo's Japanese website. A single background track will be played while you watch the 3 separate trailers.

Without the audio, it allows you to see Link's world from a different perspective. Whether this was another of Nintendo's marketing strategy is unknown but it does provide a feel as to how it would be like exploring "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild."
Also noticeable in the trailer is that Nintendo did an amazing work on ensuring that Zelda remains the key figure in the story. She has this regal feel and of course more screen time. GameSpot noted that we can see from the trailer how the Guardians are terrorizing what's left of the city and burning it to the ground. Also, we get to check out the beautiful and stunning environment and the action of what's to come in this RPG.
In other news, a trailer from Japan features Nintendo's action-adventure game being shown in Switch footage, but only for about 14 seconds. Since most of the game's footage comes from the Wii U, this is commercial seems like a breath of exciting air.
“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” will officially launch on March 3 and it will be part of Nintendo Switch’s launch title. Plus, this action-adventure video game is also heading to Wii U on the same day. But this could possibly be the last 3rd-party game for the console. What do you think of the trailer minus the soundtrack?
