Fans React To Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Why You Need This Game

The latest in the Legend of Zelda franchise hit the shelves on May 12; fans already love it. The latest iteration features new powers, new game mechanics, a much larger map, and far more set within the beloved kingdom of Hyrule. 

Tears of the Kingdom is a true sequel to Breath of the Wild. It occurs after Link defeats Calamity Gannon as Hyrule seeks to rebuild from the past 100-year trauma. 

Hyrule and the gameplay are nearly identical to Breath of the Wild, but the similarities end here. The new game features both a sky world and the depths to expand the map and a plethora of new foes, abilities, and items to collect. 

Here’s what Twitter has to say about the newest release. 

I Love This Game


It’s only been a few hours, and people already love the game. One of the best parts is that there’s no “right” way to solve many puzzles. The creative options open a world of possibilities. 



The new crafting mechanics let you build all sorts of exciting devices. Put that engineering degree to good use!

It’s All Consuming


Far too many people spent all night playing the game. The world is so vast and creative, and it’s hard to keep track of time. 

You Can Build a House!


Many people went all in on the new crafting mechanic, building vehicles, robots, and even houses. 

A Little Trouble Adapting To New Mechanics


Most people love the new mechanics, but it can be a little tough to adapt without hurting your own character, as this player discovered with the unique fuse ability. 

Immersive Environment


Developers brought a fantastic job bringing Tears of the Kingdom to life. The environment feels so real. As this player exclaimed, you can even hear the rain hitting the paraglider. 

Better than Breath of the Wild


Some folks decided to replay Breath of the Wild in anticipation of Tears of the Kingdom, but this user is glad he didn’t. The game has the same world but expands on it gloriously. 

Some are even saying the game is better than the critically acclaimed Breath of the Wild. 

So Much Creativity


The creative problem-solving inherent in the game is astounding. Players love developing unique ways to complete levels.

The massive game is going to take a long time to complete. Cancel summer plans. We’re all good!

Epic Fails


The best part about learning a new game is learning what not to do.
