The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom has shone so well in the past Nintendo Direct to the delight of all the fans. Link’s new adventure opens in a few months on Nintendo Switch and the hype is literally through the roof.
Well, the new trailer presented in the Nintendo Direct has once again raised those expectations. Are you wanting to play The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom? Well, let’s feed that desire analyzing the trailer and commenting on some details that you may have missed.
The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom – Second Official Trailer Nintendo Direct 2023 (February)
The trailer opens with a dark shot (like the entire first half of the footage) where we see how the Death Mountain erupts and begins to emanate Ganon’s Malice that we’ve already seen in Breath of the Wild.
This causes evil will once again spread throughout Hyrule. We then see various blueprints showing those mysterious aerial locations and how the terrain continues to fester under heavy rain.
Illuminated pillars are shown that could be corrupted Sheikah Towers and other new locations. Furthermore, the rain of malice rushes down showing us new enemies as a type of Bokoblin and it could even become a ReDead.
The catastrophic planes continue and new flying enemies are revealed as well as what appears to be a fire wyvern, on the bridge of Hylia. And if it was a Gleeok? The rivals multiply before Link and it seems that we are going to have a few weighty challenges in this adventure.
Bloody moon moon
What is clear is that all this is again the fault of the Crimson Moon, who returns with immeasurable force to unleash chaos. Be careful, because this seems to go beyond a mechanic to revive enemies.
The appearance of the Crimson Moon (we remember you Majora’s Mask…) seems to have an important narrative impact and is even seen as affecting the weather in some way. There is a shot that shows Hyrule Castle lashed by malice and near it a huge storm…
In addition, one of the plans of the trailer has a huge symbolic charge. Link gazes at the Crimson Moon from an iconic location. It seems that our hero is in the Temple of Time located on the Plateau of Dawn.
Besides, the mummy makes an appearance again and begins to clear doubts. Gerudo, yes I am… and be careful because the jewel that she wears on her head is powerfully reminiscent of other beads that the antagonist has worn in various games of the saga.
The origin of the malice comes from our stiff friend… Is it a scene that begins the decline of the kingdom again? What a desire there is to see what Nintendo has prepared for this game.
The light was made… and the news
The second part of the trailer changes the third and shows us a much more colorful Hyrule again. Several planes reveal us various new skills, items and weapons that in Tears of the Kingdom they are going to be extremely useful to us.
One of those objects is remote control arrows, For example. He bomb launcher cannon that appears briefly also promises a lot, as well as new shield swipe mechanics. The best Tony Hawk returns, this time grinding on rails.
Another of the great additions of the sequel are the vehicles. We have already been able to see two, a kind of SUV and a flying platform with which to fly through the skies, there is even a balloon. This glimpse leaves us with new theories about the operation of this technology.
If we look closely, the land vehicle has a kind of tank in which, predictably, there is a greenish-blue liquid that could correspond to some kind of fuel.
And be careful, because we have to pay attention to vehicle snakeheads. This has already been discussed, but we have already seen these snakes in breath of the Wild and they could be referring to the zonnanan ancient tribe of which only ruins remain… or not.
Many questions for few answers
After a more extensive look at giant enemies and while an anguished Zelda questions Link, epic shots of the hero free-falling through the clouds are shown again, while a few doubts begin to assail us.
Of course, the trailer has left a lot of theories and questions without the possibility of being clarified, for the moment. What are those strange lines that run through the fields of Hyrule? What is it that Zelda carries in her hands in a very, very brief shot?
The end of the trailer anticipates us how Link’s arm will be affected by corruption and how the Master Sword will also end up damaged, as we have seen in previous glimpses. You just have to look at the game logo to see that the sword is not the same as before.
What do you think of this trailer? Be careful, because if you want more, a few months ago we revealed all the secrets of the latest trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Remember that the game arrives on May 12 on Nintendo Switch.
