The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a hit when it was made playable for the first time at E3 2016. Unfortunately, the title disappeared shortly after, skipping over PAX West to the disappointment of show goers. That, however, changed when Nintendo of Australia and New Zealand announced that select players will be able to play E3 build of the demo at the EB Expo in Sydney starting tomorrow. Check out the details below.

Get an inside view on EB Expo players’ first impressions of the latest title in The Legend of Zelda legacy, by staying tuned to our Facebook and Twitter channels for event highlights throughout the expo!

EB Expo event – 30th Sept to 2nd Oct – Sydney

Throughout the three-day expo, only a limited number of players will have the opportunity to experience the demo in a specially designated area of the Nintendo stand. This is the same demo recently showcased at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles.

We have already encountered some impressively loyal Zelda devotion in the local Nintendo community, but we’re looking forward to discovering even more Hylian devotees at EB Expo 2016!
