One The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player created an in-game helicopter, once again showing the creativity of the game's community. Tears of the Kingdom offers an epic story where Zelda and Link must battle the forces of evil to save Hyrule one more time. But the fun of the new Zelda goes beyond its main narrative.
A sequel to Breath of the Wild, the experience of playing Tears of the Kingdom is entertaining players with the introduction of four new abilities. These abilities give Link new powers, such as Ascend which allows the hero to reach areas that would once have been inaccessible. Another ability available in Tears of the Kingdom is Recall, with which Link can reset the position of objects. In this way, Link can retrieve thrown weapons, throwback objects thrown by enemies, and more.
Reddit user wiisportspro shared a video showing the helicopter they created in the game. Tears of the Kingdom is a game set in a medieval world but makes these creations possible with Ultrahand. Using this Force-like ability, Link can pick up, move, and connect objects, making various constructions possible. The helicopter created by wiisportspro invokes other helicopters seen in FPS games such as Call of Duty. According to the wiisportspro, the helicopter drains lots of battery power and the game's FPS, but at least the vehicle "looks cool." The Ultrahand ability has been used in some pretty unusual ways, with players creating tanks in Tears of the Kingdom.
While Ascend helps the exploration, and Recall is an ally in Tears of the Kingdom's combat, Ultrahand has similar uses. But because of the creative nature of the ability, Zelda players are having a lot of fun with the possibilities. The same has been true of Fuse, the fourth new ability in the game that allows Link to fuse objects to weapons, creating pretty useful combinations like explosive hammers and homing arrows. Fuse has also gone beyond the useful factor, with Zelda players creating unusual weapons using the ability.
Tears of the Kingdom had big shoes to fill after the milestone that Breath of the Wild became for the Zelda franchise. Despite the challenge Tears of the Kingdom had a strong start, which is impressive for being with just the base game content. It is worth noting that Nintendo has not yet announced any DLC or expansions for the game. With this potential to explore added to the current success, it is not hard for players to imagine Tears of the Kingdom as one of the highlights of the year.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available now on Switch.
