SEATTLE – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a great game, but it’s a fairly major departure from a traditional Zelda title. Yono and the Celestial Elephants will soon fill the pachyderm-shaped hole in your heart. Imagine The Legend of Zelda, but starring an adorable, helpful elephant, and you should get a pretty clear picture of the game.

I went hands-on with Yono and the Celestial Elephants at PAX West 2017, and listened eagerly as one of the developers described it as “The Legend of Zelda, but with an elephant.” He wasn’t kidding. I took control of Yono, a small, eager elephant who finds himself in an isometric, cartoonish town full of townspeople with problems that could only be solved by the judicious application of an elephant’s trunk.
