Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Sky Islands Trick

Recently, a Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom fan took to the internet to offer a helpful tip on how to make traveling to the Sky Islands a lot easier. After a long wait, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has finally been released and is the follow-up to 2017’s Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In this title in the Legend of Zelda franchise, Nintendo decided to expand the open world format by introducing the Sky Islands. They are situated high in the sky, yet players have multiple options, such as Link’s Recall ability, to reach these islands.

This May, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom released and brought back fan favorites such as the shrines from Zelda: Breath of the Wild and beloved characters like Impa and Sidon. Additionally, the game also introduced the Sky Islands, hovering above Hyrule that gamers can explore during the tutorial. One Reddit user posted a trick to make journeying to the Sky Islands easier.

A 49-second clip shared by Reddit user Dry_Ad_406 showcases Link’s new range of abilities in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The video reveals Link creating a platform by connecting two boards with a spear, which he then freezes and rewinds. This causes the board he is standing on to shoot him up into the air above the Sky Islands. The trick is difficult to follow, but it demonstrates the complexity of the game and how players can build mechanisms like a catapult with the new abilities.

The discussion on Dry_Ad_406’s post featured people sharing their opinions on the technique, as well as recommending other effective ways to travel around in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. One person suggested they had created an “airbike,” similarly to how someone else had recently manufactured an attack drone.

The most recent installment to the long-running Legend of Zelda video game series, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, still manages to captivate players with new elements. As the game progresses, gamers are able to explore the new lands using fresh abilities granted to Link, such as the Ultrahand. It is evident that the franchise is continuously innovating and providing an engaging experience.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a title that can be found on Nintendo Switch.
