The reveal of the Legend of Zelda Wii U at E3 last week was one of the show’s highlights to many. Producer Eiji Aonuma has now confirmed that the footage released last week as part of Nintendo’s E3 digital event, was all in-game.

If you missed the reveal, you can head through the link to watch this beauty running on the Wii U. The game was confirmed to be open world, with a 2015 release window.

Now, producer Eiji Aonuma took the Miiverse to confirm to fans wondering if the footage was indeed in-game or pre-rendered.

“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!,” he said.

Eiji Aonuma also said last week that he hopes to change how puzzles are done in the game.

Thanks, GameInformer.
