Watch the final Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom trailer

Nintendo gives us a final pre-launch look at Link’s next adventure

The third (and final) trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is here, teasing one more look at Link and Zelda’s new adventure in a post-Breath of the Wild Hyrule. Tears of the Kingdom is now just one month away from release.

Nintendo’s new trailer for Tears of the Kingdom is stuffed with new details, including familiar (and unfamiliar) faces that Link will fight alongside (and against). We also get a taste of how Link’s new abilities will let him navigate the land and skies of Hyrule, and how some handmade contraptions can be used in combat. There are also a handful of possible story revelations in the new trailer, so beware potential spoilers.

The most recent look at The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arrived in March, when Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma dropped a 10-minute look at Link’s new abilities. In that extended gameplay preview, Nintendo showed brand-new powers Recall, Fuse, Ultrahand, and Ascend. Recall lets Link rewind object movement, which is handy for traveling to Hyrule’s sky islands; weapon fusing lets Link make new weapons out of objects, like fusing a stick and a rock to make a hammer; Ultrahand, which glues objects together, can be used to make contraptions like DIY cars and aircraft; and Ascend is a tool allowing Link to move through ceilings.

To catch up on all things Tears of the Kingdom, also check out Nintendo’s original teaser (released when the game was still known as “The Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”) and the high-flying chaos and car-riding gameplay shown in February.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom drops onto Nintendo Switch on May 12.
