The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom It appears that some limits are placed on innovations created using Link’s ultrahand ability. Find some slabs of rock in Hyrule? Slap together a grip, some wheels, a steering mechanic, and glue on some arms and you’ve got… something!
Nintendo showed off its final tears of the kingdom trailer ahead of the game’s May 12th launch, and the nearly four-minute trailer showed off a lot of detail on what the Ultrahand and weapon fusions can do. Previous trailers had Link driving a car, a hot air balloon, a drone, and several different boats – all created using UltraHand. You won’t find any of these rusting around in Hyrule, but you will find parts.
Till then tears of the kingdom is released, we won’t know exactly what the limits of Ultrahand and Weapon Fusion are, but judging by the trailers, it looks like there are quite a few. Find parts and build anything you want, including a block of stone with wheels. For now, all we can do is analyze what we have seen in the trailer and learn from it.
horse drawn carriage
Link can provide taxi services to the people of Hyrule, taking them around in horse-drawn carriages. You can clearly see the connection points of how the cart is put together – they’re colored green. It’s Such A Simple Vehicle We’ve Seen In Too Many Video Games, But It Has Huge Implications tears of the kingdom, There have always been people in Hyrule, common people who live in villages. But the new trailer not only shows Link ferrying them around, but also fighting alongside them.
Link’s hold on the rocket ship or missile in this quick clip from the new tears of the kingdom trailer. It’s apparently powered by green light, again, and is throwing the hero of Hyrule straight into the sky as the Bokoblin looks on in amazement. It looks like a really useful tool for quickly reaching higher platforms, as shown here.
Janki Block Tank
Link, my boy… what is this? This vehicle is a type of stone apparatus with wheels and at least one moving arm. Link controls from the top, completely unprotected, as he comes face to face with several Bokoblins who have built their fortress atop one of the game’s emotionless stone Talus monsters. Look, not every Ultrahand invention is going to be top notch, but you can’t deny that Link is a true innovator.
Link’s impressive sword has one upgrade: it’s also part shield. It looks like the master sword is fused together with the shield to make a shield sword – hopefully a weapon that’s got some serious durability. This is just one of many weapon combinations possible with the new fusion capability. Some others we’ve seen in previous trailers include an arrow and key’s eyeball to make a homing arrow, a stick and a rock to make a hammer, and a shield and a puffshroom to make a smoke bomb.
There are obviously no green connection points on this flat, eagle-like glider, but it looks like it’s one of the vehicles that Link can make in the game. It looks like it’s a ride-on glider that’s a more advanced version of Link’s Fabric One, which is a cute way to get around Hyrule’s sky islands or land on land.
From the opening trailer, Link’s got a sick car with a variety of wheels – it looks somewhat like a flat tractor. Cars seem like an interesting way to get around Hyrule’s flat areas without much hassle, but it’s probably not something you want to be taking over cliffs or hills.
raft and boats
Nintendo has shown several different boats and rafts that will help Link cross Hyrule’s rivers and lakes. Most of them use a fan to power them, but the one above also has a sail which would definitely be useful for windy areas.
hot air balloon
Again in the earlier trailer, we saw Link taking to the skies in a hot air balloon and other flying devices. The one above uses the mechanical object of a fan to make a hot air balloon. Clever! It might not be the fastest way to get around, but you can’t deny its beauty.
The design of Link’s hovercraft employs four powerful fans on the edge of a platform, with Link propelling the vehicle among the clouds. Now This It looks like it’ll be fun to navigate around Hyrule while darting between the Sky Islands.
