Breath of the Wild: Windmill Village

Whenever I replay the Wind Waker, I always marvel at what a great town Windfall Island is. In fact playing the Windfall demo level from the The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition was what convinced me that the Wind Waker is actually a great game. Windfall might not be as intriguing as Clocktown, but there's still lots going on in the town with many interactions and the verticality of the place feels great.

Now, there was a shot of a village in the Switch Presentation trailer, which had this Windfall vibe to it:

If they can create towns, which are fun to explore and where people have actual day cycles, this would be a huge win for the game.

It also looks like there is some kind of potion shop, where you have the classic Red, Blue and Green Potions available. But I suppose that the Green Potions will be used for stamina, much like in Skyward Sword.
