Tears of the Kingdom gameplay drops
zelda Fans have been starving for everything they can get crumb they can catch, and it seems Nintendo finally takes pity and rewards them with a 10-minute gameplay trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
During the gameplay snippet zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma says this through a translator tears has changed the world “in many ways”, including parts of Hyrule floating high in the sky, or “sky islands”.
Tears of the Kingdom New skills mean less climbing
Link can reach these islands of sky through his new “Recall” powers, which alter an object’s movement, or “Race”, allowing Link to pass through ceilings in a path of twisted turquoise light. The Recall Power has Link bring a giant boulder that fell off a floating island back to said island like a cool rock elevator. And ascension means you no longer have to constantly climb the mountainsides while keeping an eye on Link’s stamina meter.
Another new power “fuse” allows Link to combine two objects, like a branch with a boulder, and use them as a unique weapon – in this case, a hammer. “Ultrahand” is what Link will use to construct the vehicles we’ve seen in previous trailers.
Tears of the Kingdom fuse weapon
Fuse appears to be one of the game’s most versatile new powers, allowing Link to attach to almost anything to augment and alter its traits. At one point, for example, Link attaches two fans to a raft to turn it into a rustic speedboat of sorts. You can also attach items to your arrows to increase their utility, be it an eyeball or, you know, a piece of meat. The term “Flesh Arrow” is currently all over our Twitter timeline zelda Fans hurriedly wondered what to do with a flesh dart inside Tears of the Kingdom.
G/O Media may receive a commission
Other The startling revelations include the breaking of weapons (in the trailer it’s a branch that breaks, to be realistic) and a new enemy, the construct, which looks like a stone robot, and a gliding ability.
The Zonaï in Tears of the Kingdom
The lengthy gameplay trailer also appeared to inadvertently confirm the presence of the Zonai, a prehistoric tribe in the zelda Universe whose ruins line Hyrule. During the game we see Link collecting what is known as a Zonai Charge from a fallen construct. It’s still unclear what they’re doing, but fans are certainly curious as to how much Tears of the Kingdom will study their traditions.
I call that a big meal. Before today, we had a very clear idea of what we were eagerly anticipating breath of the wild would contain a sequel. Existing trailers revealed that the game – Nintendos first $70 game (Pro tip: it will be cheaper if you use a Nintendo Switch Game Voucher to buy it) – looks like even more fantastic as BoTW.
“Hopefully it runs well on the aging Switch hardware.” kotaku Senior reporter Ethan Gach wrote at the time of the reveal.
Good graphics are a beautiful thing, and it’s nice to see them demonstrated in a Nintendo trailer, but it’s not something you can walk with. Previous trailers have given a general sense of what the hell is going on: Zelda isn’t sure if Link will be able to deal with the latest threat, but he’s also allowed to ride a giant hoverboard and what appears to be the airs fly a hot air balloonso who really wins?
But it wasn’t enough for the fans to bite the bullet. They substituted facts for wild dreams theorize The tears will feature the first talking Ganon, a sort of mechanic for lost souls. They also suspected the game would have homing arrows, which today’s trailer confirmed… you just have to fuse your arrows with squishy yellow Keese eyeballs to achieve this.
Today’s trailer, which continues to show Link and his green world at its best and adds even more gameplay mechanics to the previously revealed trailers, is hopefully just the beginning of Nintendo as it prepares to open the floodgates of Cold, Hard zelda Information. It doesn’t have much time anyway – the game is coming to Switch on May 12th.
