The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and fans are eagerly awaiting its release. A new ad in Famitsu has revealed more details about the corrupted version of the Master Sword, one of the game’s most iconic weapons. The ad features an image of a badly corrupted Master Sword, accompanied by text written in Japanese that fans have attempted to translate. One version of the translation indicates that the text on the right side reads: “The Master Sword, Corrupted.” Another translation uses “decayed” instead of “corrupted.”
Nintendo has been fairly protective of the details of the game, choosing to limit what it puts out through Tears of the Kingdom trailers that seemingly showcase snippets of gameplay rather than surprising story teasers. The latest trailer, which arrived during a new Nintendo Direct earlier in February, featured the return of the Blood Moon, as well as the use of what appear to be customized vehicles.
According to the new advert, the Master Sword will undergo a “major transformation” over the course of the game. The sword has been reduced to a corrupted dagger, and repairing it will likely be one of the main objectives of the game. The advert shows a render of the damaged Master Sword next to other versions of it across the Zelda timeline. The text on the left reads, “The Master Sword, which has accompanied Link on his adventures, will undergo a major transformation in the latest entry of the Legend of Zelda series.”
Fans are excited about the possibility of a new Master Sword design, as well as the role that it will play in the game. It’s clear that the sword will play an even more important role this time around, and the new advert has given fans a glimpse of what’s to come.
Players will get to craft them
With the launch of the new game The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom fast approaching, fans are eager to know what new features will be included in the game. One of the biggest revelations from the latest trailer is the presence of vehicles and the likelihood that players will get to craft them. While vehicle building is a new feature, the corrupted Master Sword remains one of the most intriguing aspects of the game. Fans will have to wait until the game’s release to see what other surprises Nintendo has in store for them.
