Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Let me introduce you to the latest Legend of Zelda Game Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, a record-breaking game for Nintendo Switch.

The game Tears of the Kingdom was first supposed to be a DLC (Downloadable Content) Pack for Zelda Breath of the Wild, but then the producers chose to take the idea of Tears of the Kingdom and create a full new game. If you haven’t read my article on Zelda Breath of the Wild, I think you should go check that out first.

After 6 years of developing this in-depth storyline, with links to past games and amazing new abilities, Zelda Tears of the Kingdom was finally released on the 12 of May 2023. Nintendo released 3 trailers for this game and an additional sneak-peek gameplay and let’s just

say, they had gamers hooked. The releasing of the game got crazy and Nintendo even posted on their news page “The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sells over 10 million worldwide in first three days, becoming the fastest-selling game in series”. Record-breaking. It even became the fastest selling Nintendo game in America. To this day 130 million copies have been sold worldwide!

Obviously, the game must be good. Here’s an introduction: The Kingdom of Hyrule has been freed from Calamity Ganon and peace has returned, when all of the sudden a glowing gloom starts to rise from underneath Hyrule Castle. People start falling sick, so Zelda and her Knight Link go under Hyrule Castle to investigate. On their way into the depths, they find ancient Zonai ruins. The Zonai were God-like creatures and the creators of the Kingdom of Hyrule. Then Zelda and Link stumble across a mummy, which suddenly reincarnates and attacks Link and Zelda. A blue glowing arm falls from a green light beam and a glowing tear falls from its hand. Link’s arm gets covered in malice and the master sword shatters in battle against the mummy. Suddenly the mummy lifts the castle into the air, starting the Upheaval. The ground under them breaks and Zelda and Link fall into nothing. Ancient ruins start falling from the sky, Zelda turns into light and fades away and sky island starts appearing above the clouds. Link wakes up, with his arm saved by being replaced with the glowing arm. Where’s Zelda? Who was the mummy? Where has Link awoken? Who does Link’s new arm belong to? Why are holes of gloom appearing everywhere? How is the castle floating? Do the Zonai still live? Is the Kingdom of Hyrule in danger?? Too many questions, but all I know is that an adventure awaits! Link’s new arm offers many imaginary abilities, and now there’s an Overworld, Kingdom and an Underworld in Hyrule!

You should buy Zelda Tears of the Kingdom now on Nintendo Switch to experience the “adventure battling new and grewsome monsters and discovering hidden mysteries in vast fields and dungeons.”
