Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma posted on Miiverse this week, saying that the impressive trailer for The Legend of Zelda Wii U shown off at E3 last week was actual gameplay footage.

Many people from the media kept asking me if the footage from the new Zelda game for Wii U is just a promotional movie, but that really is actual gameplay on Wii U. Also, I wasn’t kidding about how you will be able to reach the mountains that appear in the distance if you should choose to!

You can view the full trailer below, which displays a beautiful scene behind Aonuma as he explains the open-world nature of this title. The action starts around the 3 minute mark ,when Link and his horse escape from a terrifying monster by dashing through a riverside environment.

The Legend of Zelda for Wii U launches in 2015.
