Not many Zelda games have direct sequels, usually most of them are their own self-contained stories retelling the legend of Zelda, Link and Ganondorf. But Breath of the Wild was just so popular it prompted the development of Tears of the Kingdom. Much like Majora’s Mask was to Ocarina of Time, Tears of the Kingdom features the same art style as Breath of the Wild. Tears of the Kingdom retains many aspects of its predecessor, including the open-world environment of Hyrule, which has been expanded to allow for more vertical exploration. And although fans were left waiting for multiple years for any news of Tears of the Kingdom, we’re now so close to its release date.
In this sequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game, you’ll decide your own path through the sprawling landscapes of Hyrule and the mysterious islands floating in the vast skies above. Can you harness the power of Link’s new abilities to fight back against the malevolent forces that threaten the kingdom?
