The third and final pre-launch trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has arrived, setting the stage for the Switch game with a sizzle reel of gameplay and cinematics. As fans have discovered, the other hot thing in Tears of the Kingdom is longtime series big bad Ganondorf, who is now rocking dark magic and a set of abs that look firm enough to break the fabled Master Sword.
Naturally, the internet can’t get enough of Hot Ganondorf (trademark pending), and the official key art for the character only reinforces the villain’s new status as a thirst trap. Please keep your hands where we can see them.
On social media, fans are running wild with Ganon’s new look, which trades his usual bulky armor for robes that show off his impressive physique. It’s like he joined a gym at the start of the new year and didn’t stop going after two weeks. We’ll add more tweets during the day, because even artists need some time to cool down before they create true art.
The rest of the gameplay featured in the new Tears of the Kingdom trailer is a painful reminder that the game is a month away from launch on the Switch. Similarly to how Breath of the Wild kicked the Switch era with its cinematic teaser, this trailer also went for a more dramatic angle in comparison to the informative videos that came before it.
From action-packed gameplay to new lands to explore, the trailer had plenty to show off, including Link’s new ability to fuse a shield to a sword to create the ultimate weapon.
