The adventure is yours to create in a world fuelled by your imagination.

An epic adventure across the land and skies of Hyrule awaits when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launches on 12th May for Nintendo Switch. Players embark on a quest to unravel the truth behind a cataclysmic event that has sent the kingdom into turmoil and decide their own path through the sprawling landscapes and the mysterious islands floating in the vast skies above.

New destinations, dangers, sights and puzzles will require wits and resourcefulness to overcome. Players can harness the power of Link’s new abilities to fight back against the malevolent forces that threaten the kingdom.

These include:

  • Fuse – This ability can be used to stick items together to create new weapons with various unique effects
  • Ultrahand – With the help of Ultrahand, players can construct fantastic vehicles and use them in creative ways to outsmart foes in combat
  • Recall – Recall rewinds an object’s movement to create new pathways or even send an explosive barrel straight back to its sender
  • Ascend – This ability allows link to pass through ceilings of buildings and caves to find the quickest path or an elegant exit

A new Link amiibo will launch alongside The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on 12th May . By tapping this amiibo, players can receive weapons and materials, as well as a special fabric for Link’s paraglider. If another amiibo from The Legend of Zelda series is scanned, they also provide helpful materials, weapons or a paraglider fabric based on the amiibo scanned.
