Nintendo just revealed a new Zelda game with a vibrant, immersive 3D game world.

Eiji Aonuma, the group manager of Nintendo’s EAD Software Development Group No. 3, showed off the Zelda snippet today in the Japanese company’s digital broadcast for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) tradeshow.

Aonuma has directed and produced several Legend of Zelda games, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

In his presentation, he snapped his fingers and showed off the world, which included Link on a horse, green grassy fields, and mountains.

“You can even reach those mountains in the distance,” he said. “You can enter any area from any direction.”

The puzzle-solving starts when you start moving somewhere. In any direction you move, you may run into enemies. One such spider-like monster appeared and began shooting fireballs at Link, who fled on his horse.

“As you know from Zelda games, powerful enemies in such a peaceful world is” a familiar convention for gamers.

No word yet on when it will appear.
