Yes, Nintendo had more at E3 2016 than that amazing Zelda trailer. Here's a look at some of it.

Nintendo does get points for at least letting people pretend to be outside.

Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda influence was still strong, though. But we can't really blame Nintendo -- the trailer for Breath of the Wild really did blow us away.

"I'm going to need a bigger bow"

An action-shot statue of Link brandishing his bow and arrow at a nasty looking enemy. Hopefully those arrows can pierce the skin of armoured lizard monstrocities.

Where the wild things are

A good look at one of the creature types you'll be taking down in Breath of the Wild. This critter resembles an evil Stitch, of "Lilo & Stitch" fame.

Sort your pouch out

Breath of the Wild's sandbox is said to be 12 times bigger than the world in 2006's Twilight Princess. So you'll need to pack appropriately.

Phase one

A crowd can be seen playing the game on the Wii U's controller. We don't yet know how it'll be played on the yet-to-be-revealed Nintendo NX.

Familiar surroundings

The massive room was decorated with greenery and a temple design familiar to any Legend of Zelda fan.

Zelda-riffic

As you can tell, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was Nintendo's main focus, but the company also showed off Pokemon Sun and Moon at the show.
