Watch: 7 details worth noticing in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It's this week's Eurogamer Show.

You might have seen a video we uploaded earlier this week, in which we demonstrated how to create your very own rudimentary catapult in Breath of the Wild. All you need is a treasure chest, a metallic plank and a boulder, and you too can fling Link into the air and watch as he soars, very briefly, before then plummeting towards the hard, unforgiving earth waiting below.

It's great.

And it got me thinking! Breath of the Wild is going to be a gigantic game, clearly, but it could well be the smaller details that separate this game from the many other open-worlds we've already explored. I'm much more excited about that daft catapult than I am about comparing the size of the world map to The Witcher 3 or GTA 5.

With that in mind, here are some of the things we think are genuinely worth getting excited about in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
