After a long period of silence, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom made a triumphant return during Nintendo's latest Direct with a brand new gameplay trailer showcasing all of the changes to Hyrule. The trailer began with a much darker look at Hyrule as what appeared to be the destruction of Hyrule Castle kicked things off. We also saw a much darker world filled with new enemies such as dragons and a giant stone golem.

We also got to see several new traversal methods including rail grinding and several objects that Link is driving, including a car like object and a flying machine. We also saw a bunch of new weapons including homing arrows and fireball launcher. Basically, it looked a whole lot like the Breath of the Wild we've all come to love, but with a ton more bells and whistles attached. Pretty sure that's all Nintendo needed to do though really.

It's not that long before we get our hands on Link's latest adventure either, as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is still set to launch on May 12 later this year. Be aware though that you'll probably need to pay a little bit more than you were expecting, as the game's eShop page was recently updated with a $70 price tag. Several retailers have also been delisting the game over the past 24 hours, suggesting that Nintendo might charge more for its bigger titles in the future.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom wasn't the only thing Nintendo had to show off during the event either, as it revealed a new Samba de Amigo game is currently in development which is set to launch in Summer later this year. We also got to witness one of the biggest mic drops in the games industry, as Nintendo also revealed that the rumored Metorid Prime remaster is real and launches on the Nintendo eShop later today.
