Although yesterday's Nintendo Direct stream revealed a swath of juicy trailers and gameplay footage, none were probably quite so juicy as the teaser for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Scheduled for release on 12 May 2023, the Switch-exclusive sequel to 2017's Breath of the Wild will build on the gorgeous iteration of Hyrule established by its predecessor, and on a much wider scale too. As shown in the trailer, players will be able to scale rocky cliffs, explore what appear to be temples floating in the sky, and even free-fall off of said temples accompanied by a new glider item. 

Of course, it's not yet known what exactly this chapter of Link's adventures will entail, but at this point, the fans are probably just happy to know the game is chugging along smoothly. After all, it's been a solid three years since Tears of the Kingdom was first teased at E3 2019's Nintendo Direct, so for lack of better phrasing, it's about time something new showed up.
