Tears of the Kingdom fusing weapons

Nintendo released new information about fusing and increasing weapon attack power with Link’s new Fuse ability in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. In a screenshot of the game, shared by the official Japanese The Legend of Zelda Twitter account, Link is seen Fusing his weapon with a monster material to increase the attack power and durability of it.

In the screenshot, Link wields what looks like a rusty sword, and he has combined it with the fang or horn of a monster, resulting in a power increase of 13, and a total power of 19.

The Japanese caption accompanying the screenshot says that different type of horns, fangs, and other enemy parts dropped by monsters can be fused with weapons with the Fuse ability, to improvise weapons on the go. Additionally, sharp and hard materials in particular increase the attack power of weapons a lot.

We can see the new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom screenshot of Link fusing his weapon and increasing its attack power and durability on the tweet below.


Nintendo has been recently showcasing some other things that Link can do with his new abilities, like using monster materials by themselves on enemies, or newly added items like breakable portable pots for cooking.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will release for the Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.
