In many ways, Tears of the Kingdom is a return to Zelda’s roots, and these parts show that.
Fans are very familiar with the Legend of Zelda series, which has been going on for almost 40 years and has a lot of parts that we’ve come to expect from it. But with Breath of the Wild, Nintendo took the series in a different way, leaving some things out to give players a new experience.
Even though Breath of the Wild was a huge hit, Tears of the Kingdom took the new recipe and made it even better. To build on what BotW had done, TotK brought back a lot of old and familiar features to make this new formula feel like a true Zelda formula. These are just a few examples of things that might seem small but are very important.
