We caught a glimpse of her the Breath of the Wild gameplay trailer that aired in October, and now the new trailer revealed during the Nintendo Switch Presentation shows us the beautiful face of Princess Zelda. We see her in multiple outfits, one of which is similar to Link’s and looks fit for adventure. We also see her in an elegant white gown and a tattered tube top.

But enough about what she’s wearing, the new trailer gives us some insight into her character. This incarnation of Zelda is once again far from a damsel in distress. Well, to be fair, she is in distress but so is everyone else. As Guardians bring forth destruction, we hear her say, “Everything I’ve done up until now, it was all for nothing.” She remains strong for so long, but everyone has a breaking point. Alone with Link, she lets her guard down and falls into his chest, sobbing.

We’ll find out why all that Zelda has worked to achieve is being torn apart when Breath of the Wild comes out on March 3. Until then, check out these screenshots of Zelda in action.

      Well… I mean, it was a little disappointing that this didn’t come out in 2015 like we were hoping. But I know what you meant. The trailer is epic!
