The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is just around the corner as we approach its May 12 release date. Although Nintendo released a final trailer for the game on Thursday morning, there’s still a lot we don’t know about it.
We know what some of the new characters will look like, and that some friends The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are returning Nintendo also revealed details about Link’s new powers and breakable weapons in a recent gameplay demo from Eiji Aonuma. however, a lot tears of the kingdom A mystery remains.
In 2023, the Zeldathon is starting. Join us on our journey through The Legend of Zelda series, from the original 1986 game to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and beyond.
While many fans are reasonably content to be theoretical about what’s next, it can also be fun to dream big.
In anticipation of its release, the staff decided to make a list of the features, capabilities, and quality-of-life improvements we’ve come to expect. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, These range from the return of certain characters to… hummus. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of wishes. Let’s dive in!
I think Link should be able to make hummus. There are a million things you can do with hummus. You can season it with acidic fruits, herbs, or vegetables—everything Link is already gathering. In the fight with Gannon let Link bring a veggie/hummus platter for his boss. Let me have a dozen, Nintendo.
I have nothing more to argue with. I think it would be nice. -Susana Polo
Let’s all ride to Prince Sidon
on Thursday during tears of the kingdomIn the final trailer, Nintendo revealed that Prince Sidon would return in the sequel. Now that he’s confirmed to be in the next game, I hope we get to ride him more.
Zora Shahi charmed me from the moment Link met her with her broad, radiant smile. The guy has the best Golden Retriever energy of any Zelda character I know, and connects with Link in the best possible way: Link literally rides Sidon as the two Divine Beasts fight Vah Ruta. Although some clever glitch hunters found a way to ride Sidon everywhere, I hope Nintendo includes the ability by default. ,Ana Diaz
Instant swappable armor and weapon sets
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild A deep closet with gear to arm links is included. If you’re going to be navigating certain areas, like the icy mountains in the Hebra region or the lava-laced Death Mountain, it’s extremely helpful to get special gear that protects Link from the elements. Unlike other equipment like your bow, sword, and shield, changing your armor set forces you to go into another menu and change what Link is wearing, piece-by-piece. It’s a bit cumbersome if you’re teleporting from place to place, trying to complete quests or trying to find more shrines, so I hope this is addressed in the sequel . -Eddy
Fans have been asking to play as Princess Zelda for years, but that’s never happened in a mainline Legend of Zelda game (though it’s possible in the Hyrule Warriors games and Smash Bros.). Zelda’s had some pretty cool adventures in the past, and so far many of them have happened off screen. i don’t expect tears of the kingdom To be the game that finally fulfills this wish, but there’s no harm in hoping. This time it almost seems possible, because it’s a direct sequel. breath of the wildAnd sequels provide an opportunity to expand players’ perspective on a preexisting world.
Said all that breath of the wildThe Story of Zelda was very much about it; He and Link felt like dual protagonists, even though the former was not playable. This happens often in my favorite Zelda games, like Ocarina of Time, in which Zelda’s skills and abilities are often used to link. i hope i do the same tears of the kingdomBut it sure would be nice to spend some time in the shoes of a princess for once. -Maddie Myers
I’d love to see the return of the Heroes Path feature tears of the kingdom, It was introduced with some DLC breath of the wild As a new skill for your sheikha slate. Even as the most minor component of that material, it made for a really fun way to look back on your trip.
With the Hero’s Path enabled (by pressing X while looking at the map), you can see a highly simplified icon of a green line around the map, mirroring your movements as you initially land on the first plateau. Woke up. It shows every place you’ve been, in what order, when you died, and when you moved to a new location. Besides being fun to watch, it’s an amazing feat to have so much granularity preserved in your save file.
Unnecessary? Yes. But it’s one of those cherry-on-top features I’d love to see tears of the kingdomAs well as in every other open-world game. —Cameron Faulkner
We all know that the music in The Legend of Zelda games is legendary, and breath of the wild was no different. But what it lacked was a way to bring that music into the gameplay. Sure, sure, sure, I loved catching the faint hum of the accordion on the wind as I explored Hyrule, knowing I could follow Kass to a new puzzle. but what if I Want to play the accordion?
since Ocarina of Time (not to mention Majora’s Mask And Twilight Princess), Link has used music (Oke, Oke, or Wolf Howl) to reveal secrets, open doors, tame wild beasts, change time, change the weather, and cleanse evil spirits. I’m not saying I need to do all that tears of the kingdom, But for me, one of the enduring joys of the Zelda franchise is music’s association with magic; Achievement achieved by learning songs like mantras, storing them in your brain and actually performing them to perform miracles.
And, Also, just strumming a little instrument to see what sounds I can make. I want to experience that joy again in a new Zelda game, and the precision and flexibility of the Switch’s inputs make it all the more appealing. not to mention tears of the kingdomdemonstrated the slime mechanics of: let me slap a stick and some monsters string together to form a stringed instrument and open a magic door. Let me put the wolf skin on a log to make a drum, and jam it with Hestu and his maracas!
OK OK OK. Just make the sheikha slate a melodica or something, but bring back the music playing in Zelda. -SP
