Nintendo of America posted a new Breath of the Wild clip via their Twitter account showcasing a new item for the Zelda franchise, the Paraglider. The Paraglider allows Link to sail across vast distances while offering spectacular views of the open world. However, unlike Wind Waker’s Deku Leaf or Skyward Sword’s Sail Cloth, the Paraglider can be used for much more than just transportation. The video clip shows off a handful of actions Link can perform while using the Paraglider, such as dropping bombs, shooting arrows, and even putting away the Paraglider in mid-air to deliver a powerful “ground-and-pound” type of attack from above!
We’re excited to see what other abilities the Paraglider might provide, but for now, you can check out the video from Nintendo of America’s Twitter account below.
