The brief yet stunning footage from the Wii Us upcoming Zelda title shown at E3 wasn’t pre-rendered.

Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has taken to Miiverse to reassure fans in awe of supposed gameplay footage shown at E3 that it is indeed the real deal.

“Many people from the media kept asking me if the footage from the new Zelda game for Wii U is just a promotional movie,” Aonuma said, “but that really is actual gameplay on Wii U.”

He went on to say the expansive open world will be fully transversable, “Also, I wasn’t kidding about how you will be able to reach the mountains that appear in the distance if you should choose to!” Aonuma added.

For any that missed it here’s the trailer again. The news that this is actual gameplay is certainly making the next Zelda game look enticing.
