After years of anticipating, we finally have a name for the next installment of The Legend of Zelda. And what a name it is! My head is spinning as I ponder why Nintendo waited so long to release this title. There was much speculation that the title could give too many hints and spoilers about the story, but Tears of the Kingdom still seems a bit ambiguous.

From the look of things, I don’t think anything good is happening in our beloved kingdom of Hyrule. Could the tears refer to Zelda not surviving her fall into the chasm below Hyrule Castle? Could it refer to the tears of some past tragedy that is now affecting the present? Though Calamity Ganon is now gone, it seems something even more sinister is at work in the land, and Hyrule in its entirety is at risk of being obliterated once and for all. I for one can’t wait to take this epic journey with Link and Zelda. Everything looks absolutely fantastic, and honestly, a bit on the darker side for a Zelda game.

I am here for it.

What do you think Tears of the Kingdom could mean? Let me know in the comments!
