Many gamers have already asked for time off and let their friends know not to expect any text messages in the weekend of May 12. Then The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will appear.
Because we want to take off with Link
There will be a big world in this game, called Sky Island, where Link can explore everything. A new ability called recall has been developed for it, which allows Link to quickly move to this location. In the new game, we can also take place in a hot air balloon with Link, we can use a drone and he can even create his own vehicles and weapons. Link can also climb mountains even faster, so you can now comb this world even better.
Because some worlds are classic Zelda
In Breath of the Wild, dungeons were missed by some gamers and it seems they can now catch up. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom seems to return to the caves we know from previous games in that regard. Very cool, because that open world running around can sometimes use some dungeons to sink your teeth into. And yes, Ganondorf is back as the villain, so of course it can’t get more classic Zelda than that.
Because we want to know which fan theories are correct
There is more than 6 years between Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom, which means that gamers have had a very long time to think about what Link and Zelda are about to do. There are all kinds of wild fan theories going around, such as a burnt down Korok Forest, including the Great Deku Tree, but also that Zonai magic is involved and that there is even some kind of time travel mechanism in the game. There are a lot of wild theories that are still rampant and we love them, although now we really want to know which ones are correct.
Because the trailers look great
Nintendo has now treated us to three trailers and it seems to stay with that until the game comes out. The first trailer was more of a teaser, but the second was a full trailer where we got to see a ton of what to expect from Link’s new adventure. In addition, a third trailer was added last week, which, among other things, shows more of Link’s cloud plans. We can waste a lot of words on them, but you just have to see them (see throughout the article).
Because Nintendo probably doesn’t act so mysterious for nothing
Nintendo is often somewhat mysterious about upcoming games, but as mysterious as it is about Tears of the Kingdom, we didn’t often see that. Would there be a huge twist in this game? We expect it by now. Partly for that reason we are so looking forward to this game: it can still go either way. For example, we don’t yet know if Zelda is playable in this game, although rumors – based on Nintendo screenshots of Zelda with shorter hair – are rumored to be playable: why else would she have Mulan-style shorter hair?
