A new video from Looygi Bros. accurately compares the upcoming action adventure Zeda: Tears of the Kingdom to its prequel Breath of the Wild. The footage shows that the new Zelda makes little effort to tell scenically new stories from Hyrule, and furthermore erases settlements and trees from the map.
An even emptier Hyrule? Recently, the YouTube channel Looygi Bros. published a video comparison between Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and its predecessor Breath of the Wild. The roughly eight-minute comparison shows, among other things, many almost identical locations from the two action adventures in split screen.
While on the positive side the improved lighting as well as the more spatial distance representation catch the eye, the course of Breath of the Wild’s story has possibly erased or “evacuated” several locations from the map. As a result, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom looks a bit more lifeless than the game world of the successful Breath of the Wild.
Disappeared Settlements and an Abandoned Laboratory
Below you can see for yourself the comparison work of the Looygi Bros. Specifically, it highlights things like the collapsed bridge to Princess Zelda’s room, the apparently abandoned laboratory, and a vanished settlement. Per the video, Tears of the Kingdoms game world also looks more visually drab, as the snow cover southwest of the Great Plateau has been removed.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is scheduled for release on May 12th, 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
