Nintendo Direct Reveals The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom

June 19, 2024 by Alex Novichenko

During the latest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom, a new game in the beloved franchise set to launch on September 26. The game features a unique art style reminiscent of the Link's Awakening remake and stars Zelda as the main protagonist for the first time in a mainline Zelda game.

In Echoes of Wisdom, Zelda must save the kingdom and rescue Link, who has been captured by mysterious rifts appearing across Hyrule. Zelda's primary power is the use of Echoes, which allows her to create duplicates of any item she finds an echo for, including tables, beds, and even spike obstacles. This ability is crucial for solving puzzles and navigating dungeons.

Zelda's combat style differs from Link's traditional approach. Instead of wielding swords and shields, she uses Echoes to create weapons and fight. She can replicate items like rocks to use as weapons or even find Echoes of monsters to summon and battle other foes.
