Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is THE most anticipated game this year. Everybody wants to play it as soon as possible, and a select few were granted an exclusive sneak peek at the game. Lucky for us, the legendary YouTuber "Zeltik" was among the chosen few and he's just released a mind-blowing gameplay video revealing a new ability that was unknown to us until now.

Several content creators were allowed to try-out some parts of Tears of the Kingdom pre-release. They told us about some cool features like storing Zonai devices such as fans in your inventory, that you can later on use for building vehicles. We also got to see how these new gum ball machines work, and that they will give you a random selection of Zonai devices in return for Zonai charges. Although everyone's under embargo, a new ability has been revealed to us.

In the gameplay footage we see YouTuber "Zeltik" fighting a big Bokoblin boss, building vehicles, trying out the different abilities and so on. But at one point he opens the Ability Wheel, and what do we see? A new symbol we have never seen before. He didn't reveal the name, but the icon in the ability wheel is showing three purple hands. Two hands are at the bottom, and one hand looks like it's grabbing something from above.

Zeltik says that unfortunately he is not allowed to talk about it, but that we will unlock this ability later in the game, because it is not there from the beginning. He also revealed that it "streamlines the Ultrahand building process, to make things more convenient. Especially in sections of the game where you'll need to build a lot".

What this new ability does exactly could be both very helpful and very exciting when it comes to building. Not that we would know what is going on.... but rumors (and another very brave YouTuber) talked about how it could give us the ability to save and store our building creations and access them anytime. Maybe this ability could be called "Autobuild" or something like that. What do you think it is? I feel like we're on the right track here.
