The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda franchise has always been known for its intricate dungeons and challenging puzzles. However, the previous installment, Breath of the Wild, deviated from this tradition and introduced a plethora of mini-puzzles called shrines and four Divine Beasts. While the game was still a massive success, fans longed for the return of the classic dungeons.

The highlight of the trailer is the appearance of Gleeok, the three-headed dragon that served as the boss for the fourth dungeon in the original NES game. It is possible that the upcoming game might utilize the classic foe for a dungeon as well. But Gleeok is not the only boss seen in the video. There is also an oozy, purple-mouthed alligator monster that could be a boss or miniboss as part of a Sky Temple-esque dungeon.

The trailer also features a minecart sequence where Link battles an enemy while riding along parallel tracks in a lava and heat-themed environment. This sequence hints at a classic Zelda fire dungeon, and the inclusion of such an environment is sure to excite long-time fans of the series.

Another classic puzzle element of the series that is seen in the trailer is the horizontal wheel, which Link pushes at one point. This element is reminiscent of the puzzles found in previous Zelda games and adds to the speculation that the sequel will feature classic dungeons.

While nothing has been confirmed, Nintendo seems to be signaling that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will offer more traditional dungeons than its predecessor. This news is sure to excite fans who have been eagerly waiting for the return of the classic Zelda formula.

However, the new trailer has also caused some frustration among fans as the release of the game is still a long way off. To help pass the time, fans have been creating memes and fan art, with some even turning the game’s villain, Ganondorf, into a “thirst trap.”

Despite the wait, fans of the series are eagerly anticipating The Legend of Zelda:Tears of the Kingdom, and the new trailer has only added to the excitement. With the return of classic dungeons, it seems that Nintendo is listening to the fans and delivering a game that stays true to the series’ roots.
