The long wait ended only recently when Eiji Aonuma finally got coherent gameplay to play the long awaited The Legend of Zelda: Kingdom’s Tears foot. The 10-minute presentation gave different impressions of the new mechanics, but also a look at the new old Hyrule.
It didn’t take long for fans to get excited and get to the bottom of the New Heaven’s Islands domain. But that’s not all: now ardent disciples of Zelda are dedicating themselves to the origin of the Sky Islands.
A connection to a “link to the past”?
The considerations are motivated by a sentence interrupted by producer Eiji Onuma during the show: “You’re not going to get many of these yellow trees on the roof.” [von Hyrule] Look. The sentence fell while Link was allowed to explore one of the many sky islands. Fans are now wondering if Aonuma was hinting that the islands didn’t originate from Hyrule.
One theory, for example, is based on the idea that the islands came from the “Holy Kingdom” – or the Golden Land. Play this first in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Role and like home Triforce there.
It doesn’t seem farfetched that these yellow – or alternatively golden – trees could come from this same Golden Empire. Since the theory is backed by artwork for “A Link to the Past” that presents the Holy Kingdom as floating islands, As Twitter user RwanLink notes.
Another, less knowledge-focused theory—though similarly speculative—is that Behind the Trees only suspects a new biome found only on the Sky Islands. Some other fans suspect there are “Seal of Elden”-like signs behind the trees that denote special items. Just like in the FromSoftware RPG, golden seeds are found on the golden branches opposite the World Tree.
Two ideas that certainly do not contradict the golden earth theory. Well, in the end, loyal Zelda fans have no choice but to wait and see how this question gets resolved. Fortunately, it won’t be long before The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is released. It’s already May 12th.
Are you excited about the title? Then perhaps switching with a new Zelda mod might be something for you. In addition, there is a console and a matching bag.
