During the February 8 Nintendo Direct, a brand new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom trailer was revealed, showcasing new gameplay.

It revealed the ability to drive a car and flying platforms, new flying enemies that can carry others, new bosses, including one made entirely of metal cubes, and exploration in the open world.

Unfortunately, the Direct did not confirm the existence of a Tears of the Kingdom OLED. This is despite leaked pictures of it surfacing not that long ago.

We also see Link use his new and mysterious metal arm to manipulate objects around the world. He can even glide on a flying platform and drive a car.

While it doesn’t seem like Hyrule has changed all that much since Breath of the Wild, there are glimpses of the floating islands teased in previous trailers.

Perhaps most intriguingly are the voiced lines from Ganon, which reveal his nefarious plans to destroy Hyrule once more.

Towards the end of the trailer, Link leaps to rescue Zelda as her voice-over begs someone to lend Link their power.
