See the New Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Gameplay

Nintendo kicked off the week of March 27, 2023 by promising The Legend of Zelda Series Producer Eiji Aonuma would usher in new Tears of the Kingdom gameplay footage. Now that presentation is available online. While short, at about 10 minutes total, it does offer a better idea of what Link and Zelda will be dealing with in Hyrule after Breath of the Wild. It also confirmed that development is complete on the game.

Here’s the video showing off the new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom gameplay. The game is at a playable state at this point, and Aonuma played it in the presentation. It showed the Sky Islands, as well as how the “Recall” ability can rewind actions. When rocks fall from above, Link can use this skill and his Paraglider to reach one of these floating islands in the game. It also shows Link’s Ultrahand ability, for crafting things like rafts, and Ascend to reach higher areas. However, only Link appeared in this latest peek at the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will come to the Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. As a reminder, it will be a $69.99, while normal first-party Switch games tend to be $59.99.
