Nintendo's 10-minute reveal of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom gameplay has exceeded our expectations. TOTK producer Eiji Aonuma took us on a tour through Hyrule and demonstrated all the new aspects of Tears of the Kingdom gameplay. We've seen him craft weapons out of items found in the game world and build vehicles that can transport Link to his destinations.

In just 10 minutes, Nintendo has opened the door to our imagination and made us realize that this game will offer us a level of creative freedom that we have never experienced before.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Gameplay Offers Creative Freedom Like Never Before

As shown in Nintendo's latest Zelda TOTK gameplay reveal, we will be able to craft our own weapons, build vehicles and basically repurpose any item that we find.

In Tears of the Kingdom, we will be able to use the items found in our environment to craft weapons, improve our equipment, and even build functional vehicles. Until now, they only showed us simple things, like a weapon crafted from a stick and a boulder. But just imagine what kind of things we could create with more complex items.

The possibilities are nearly infinite and there will be so much to discover, that we must be stuck to this game for years. They also showcased that even seemingly basic combinations such as coupling a puffshroom with a shield can create an entirely new and exciting style of gameplay.

At the moment, the enemy hits the shield, the mushroom will explode into a big cloud of fog in which the enemy will be unable to see us. Giving players the chance to sneak up on their enemies and perform a stealthy strike.

I can't wait to try out all kinds of different combinations and come up with something new. Just remember what cooking in Breath of the Wild was like. You could just throw some random ingredients into a pot and create a new dish. Did you know that Breath of the Wild had 118 different kinds of dishes, that we could all discover just by trying out new food combinations?

Just imagine how many types of weapons we could create in Tears of the Kingdom. TOTK combat is going to be extremely versatile and offers us complete freedom of finding our own play style.

In the gameplay demonstration, we also see a boat, crafted from wood logs and ventilators. Given from the trailers, we know that we can create all kinds of different vehicles, no matter if it floats, swims, drives, or flies. As we know Nintendo, they wouldn't reveal too much in the trailers. Everything, that we have seen so far and already captivated us, is probably only a mere fraction of what really awaits us.

So, from the moment that we set foot into this game, we will have full creative freedom where we can basically try out anything, and it's probably going to work. I really can't wait to play this game. This is why I pre-ordered it on Amazon, I wouldn't dare to wait one more day after it releases.
