In today’s Nintendo Direct, fans of the series were surprised with the announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom. Players can enjoy an entirely new adventure as they (finally) take on the role of Princess Zelda. The game launches on September 26th for the Nintendo Switch.

Based on the trailer, The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom appears to have the same graphic art style as the Link’s Awakening remake. But despite sharing similar visuals, expect it to offer a new gameplay experience, according to producer Eiji Aonuma. Zelda’s Tri Rod Echo ability will allow her to clone monsters in battle to support her and help her overcome obstacles.

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom Overview

It’s up to Zelda and her wisdom to save the kingdom of Hyrule in a brand-new story in The Legend of Zelda series.

The people of Hyrule are being stolen away by strange rifts that have appeared, with a certain swordsman among the missing. Team up with the mysterious fairy, Tri, and use the power of the Tri Rod to create echoes – imitations of things found in the environment. Then recreate those echoes whenever you like to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Use echoes of water blocks to reach new heights, make bridges out of old beds, throw rocks at foes – or find your own creative combination of echoes to do things your way. You can even create echoes of monsters to fight at your side in combat.

Additionally, a gold-colored Nintendo Switch Lite Hyrule Edition system adorned with the Hylian Crest and inspired by the Legend of Zelda series arrives on Sept. 26 as well. Players can enjoy access to a range of classic the Legend of Zelda titles from the NES, Super NES, Game Boy, Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance with the included 12-month individual Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership.
