You asked for it, you got it. At long last, thanks to a new Nintendo Direct, we finally have a new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's sequel - and we now know that it’s not called Breath of the Wild 2. Meet The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom - aptly named after the millions of Zelda fans out there reacting to this news.
Enough of me, just take a look at the trailer, okay? Okay.
There’s quite a lot to unpack here, but let’s get into it. As well as a whole bunch of mysterious wall carvings (which I’m sure will make a lot more sense to us once we’ve gotten stuck into the game), we’ve also been treated to some tantalising gameplay, showcasing more of the mysterious, floating land we're set to explore. Link is seen diving through the clouds and landing on some sort of platform/aircraft/unidentified flying object, all while seemingly taking no fall damage, which is interesting. Perhaps we’ll be able to launch ourselves towards specific platforms without putting poor Link in any danger? It’s too soon to tell, but I’m sure that fans will be scrutinising every last frame of this footage to try and uncover its secrets.
Not only does the gameplay look positively gorgeous, but perhaps more importantly, we have a release date and it’s surprisingly soon. Tears of the Kingdom will be releasing on Nintendo Switch on 12 May 2023 - so there’s just (checks calendar) seven months to go. Okay, that’s still a bit of a wait, but the end is in sight, and I for one couldn’t be happier.
