Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom - May 12, 2023


Recommended Posts

So I heard that the reason why the Direct wasn't livestream was because of the title of this game.

 

That's understandable.

 

That aside, very, very hype for this game and can't wait to see more. Less than 8 month till release. So much they got to do to advertise so I wonder when it will start?

Yeah, that's got to be that main reason why the Direct wasn't livestreamed in the UK and why they were even debating to delay the Direct in the first place. Nintendo can't catch a break. First Advance Wars 1 +2 on Switch and  the war on Ukraine and now BotW 2's name reveal and the passing of the Queen. Just bad timing. I wonder if Nintendo will get any backlash from the title of this game?

Time will tell.

 

I am not really watching what ppl around the world are saying about this title but right now it appears all is fine.

Yep. If they do receive any, hopefully it's very minor. Though, I can see people making jokes about it, mainly comedians, like late night hosts.

 

Speaking of the title, I wonder how dark this game will be..? It seems this is going to be BotW's Majora's Mask.

Now that I am think what would be spoiler-y for the game title, I don't see it.

 

Where I think the spoiler would be is the logo, more so on the master sword appearance.

 

As for how dark as Eiji Aonuma says it would be may be red herring. I saw this mentioned on Twitter, what if the game title word Tears is not for teardrop but like when some tears in general; like tearing paper. I think either would work for tears as sadness or tears as we see land up in the sky like they were torn from the ground.

 

Tho, I think they tears is pronounced slightly different tears teardrop rolls more mentally in mind then think tears land from the Kingdom of Hyrule.

 

Am I wrong in thinking this or does it make sense either?

So apparently the name is not offensive?

 

Tho, now I am wondering the title was the supposed spoiler for the game but how have they had this name on lock? Was this part of the delay process or was it always there but a spoiler?

 

I ask because I recall when we first saw XC 3, Takahashi said the Uryran titan and Mechonis Sword were the first concept to before XC 3 started development and when XC 2 was starting or ending its development.

 

When it comes to TV, movie and games how thing are developed are not in order so Tears of the Kingdom could been later in development or when Nintendo first thought to not reveal its name for some reason.

I really doubt the title is anything spoilery.  Zelda games aren't new to their subtitles referencing something central to the game.  A lot of games in general have subtitles that reference something key to the game so I can't imagine that being the reason.

Even before the name reveal so many ppl after BotW and announcement of the sequel, there's been so much Zonai vid. Very few Twili vids and if there's any relation to the Zonai that or were separately talked about.

 

Blade of Twili makes sense to me only for the the reason of Sol and the yellow orbs of light in Tears of the Kingdom, tho the sol in TP was more of sepia white digress the iconography just screams Twili but I can accept Zonai too.
