Nintendo has released a video containing new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom footage that sees Link saving Hyrule through the use of a mushroom spear. The snippet gives viewers a look at the series protagonist wielding the fungal-empowered weapon as he angrily faces off against the ever-present Bokoblins.
Although the Tears of the Kingdom final trailer had already given players an in-depth look at the new Ascend and Fuse ability, this latest clip provides fans an even better idea of the wacky inventions that can be created with Link’s updated skills. Other unique creations that caught the eye of several spectators include a handheld cannon and a floating vehicle that the protagonist is seemingly able to control with what Reddit users are calling a “Zonai-con.”
Several scenes in Nintendo Japan’s preview also shows Link accomplishing other activities within the game, like starting a fire using spin attack and chopping down a tree with a baseball bat-like weapon. With all these possibilities in mind, fanatics can’t help but be excited for the upcoming series installment as it seemingly has way more features in store compared to its equally popular predecessor.
Unfortunately, since The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom footage is part of the much larger Nintendo Japan video above, the context in which these scenes are from are largely vague. They also only come in short bursts because a large portion of the clip contains snippets from other entries like Mario Kart 8, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Splatoon 3.
With the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom release date inching ever closer, though, this may be the last in-game footage that we get to see ahead of its launch. However, based on the early reactions that fans have had to the trailers, it’s safe to say that this will be one of the biggest – if not the biggest – games of the year.
