Whether or not the footage portends a Most Anticipated Game win is still to be determined.

The Game Awards will once again feature a legendary appearance.

Nintendo of America confirmed that new footage for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will appear at The Game Awards on Thursday evening. It will mark the game's second appearance at the show in its modern incarnation, following off-screen footage being shown at the first show in 2014.

Game Awards host Geoff Keighley also announced on a livestream last night that there would be a Game Awards-themed eShop sale, but it is not known what games would be involved on Nintendo's end. Some of the candidates for Game Awards, including Best Handheld nominee Monster Hunter Generations, are already on sale as a part of Nintendo's Black Friday sale that runs through December 5 in North America.

Can't wait to see Geoff to shill his guts out hyping up some 3DS eShop games.

Also AM2R died for this (okay not really but still).

I'll pick up Birthright if it goes on sale and Conquest and Revelations too if there's a combo discount.

Conquest is the one you want to play. Trust me on this one.

Buying one of the main 2 gets the discount on the other.

I meant I'd buy all three at once if there were additional savings for doing so, but thanks for the heads up.

I want to play all three and Birthright seems to be intended as the first volume. Do you have additional complaints  other than it's too easy?

Do you like the social/support/marrying elements? Play Birthright first. Also, it's not necessarily easier than Conquest, it just has straight-forward mission goals (rout the enemy) instead of the variety of goals each Conquest stage has.

I like them a lot. It's another reason I wanted to start with Birthright since the reviews made it seem more amenable to that feature. Thanks for the confirmation and your feedback on the difficulty.
