Nintendo has released the first trailer for its highly anticipated Breath of the Wild sequel Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
The trailer showcases various runes that hint at Hyrule’s past, then we see Link push open a gigantic door as he paces toward the edge and leapt into the clouds.
We also see what appears to be a statis rune upgrade that allows Link to ride rocks and climb faster. The game is still in development and we will be seeing much more gameplay footage before its official launch next year.
Nintendo disclosed in a press release that, in addition to the lands of Hyrule, Tears of the Kingdom will take players into the skies as well as an expanded world that goes beyond that.
At the end of the trailer, we see Link flying on what seems like a glider. Hopefully, this unknown artefact will be used throughout the game.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will release for Nintendo Switch on May 12th, 2023.
