Yesterday, Nintendo revealed a few minutes of gameplay from the long-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which is set to debut this May. The game looks quite good thus far, with definitive improvements over the 2017 release of Breath of the Wild.
The game’s director, Eiji Aonuma, hosted the broadcast, and started with the good news that the game is “now complete,” meaning it’ll meet its May 12th release date with no delays.
Although the video didn’t go over all the changes to come (“We’ll run out of time” Aonuma joked), there’s a lot featured here, particularly with building. You can actually craft new means of transport to get around the world, including a makeshift boat, a big monster truck-like car and much more.
In addition, you can form new weapons, putting items together to fend off familiar favorites, as well as newcomers like the deadly “Constructs,” which come at you either alone or in groups. Our particular favorite is putting an eyeball on an arrow so that it has a new homing ability.
In addition, various accessories will be introduced alongside the game. A new OLED model of the Nintendo Switch, with a limited edition dock and JoyCons, will arrive on April 28th (no game
included). You’ll also be able to pick up a limited edition Switch Pro Controller or Tears carrying case on May 12th, alongside the game. Check out the pictures below.
We’re excited for this game something fierce, and now we’re only a few weeks away from release. Who’s going to play it?!
