Play as Zelda?!? A brand new top-down Zelda game has been announced! The Legend of Zelda Echoes of Wisdom brings back the art style we saw in the Link's Awakening remake. Here's what we've learned about the new game, including its release date this year!

Come chat about the new Zelda game on our Zelda Realm!

Strange rifts have appeared across Hyrule and have taken people away, including Link.

Zelda meets a new fairy named Tri and takes off across Hyrule to save her kingdom.

Zelda can use the power of Tri through the Tri Rod to create echoes of objects around her. Once learned, you can then recreate these echoes anywhere you'd like in the world, which should lead to some very interesting solutions for puzzles. Some echoes that have been confirmed so far are a table, a box, a bed, and water blocks, which you can swim up through when stacked.

We also can see a trampoline, sign, tree, pot, and rock all being available echoes.

The ability to conjure echoes out of nothing also makes for changes to the way you'll battle with Zelda. Nintendo demoed this with summoning a rock that could then be thrown at a Moblin.

And it gets better! You can make echoes of monsters to make them fight alongside you! All monsters have their own abilities which may come in handy for solving puzzles or just getting out of really crazy situations.

Here are some additional screenshots of different scenes in the game.

Legend of Zelda Echoes of Wisdom releases on September 26, 2024.

Also available will be a Nintendo Switch Lite system with a Zelda theme. It looks amazing!
