A few hours separate us from the official release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and fans have started lining up in waiting lines in preparation for receiving their copies, starting from midnight next night.
On this occasion, some new information about the game began to officially reach the Internet, most notably the confirmation of the existence of the multiple worlds of Dungeons in the game.
through Interview with the developers, part three Posted on the Official Nintendo Blog, where the game’s top developers talked about the game and the development process, revealing for the first time the existence of Dungeons that will expand the game world and offer a new gaming experience.
Below, we will summarize for you a complete translation of one of the questions that were directed to developers about Dungeons, which was as follows:
We’ve only discussed Heaven, but this title has Dungeons too, right?
Fujibayashi: Yeah, we haven’t talked about dungeons yet. They have changed from the previous game. For example, there are Dungeons that connect directly from the surface of Hyrule. If you shoot from the sky directly into one of these Dungeons, it will trigger a quick Event. We believe this will be a new experience that was not possible in the previous game.
Dohta: We’ve made these dungeons unique with their own environments, so we think you’ll be able to enjoy a variety of regional characteristics for each region.
Takizawa: The idea of making a variety was very challenging. The four Divine Beasts were the previous game’s dungeon dungeons, all sharing the same layout. This time around, the dungeon dungeons are huge and each has its own regional look, just like the traditional The Legend of Zelda games. We believe it will provide a satisfying challenge for players. It was certainly a challenge in development!
Fujibayashi added that although the huge walls in the previous game gave the game a touch of height, we think the gameplay was largely two-dimensional. This time, in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the vertical dimension has been added. In other words, gameplay that uses height. We developed 3D world with the understanding that you will be able to travel from the rooftop to the sky smoothly. Link also has a new ability called “Dive” and a new outfit for sky diving.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch next Friday, May 12, 2023.
