The much-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is finally out and is a direct sequel to Breath of the Wild. For those who haven’t played the previous game, this might be daunting. But the good news is that the game can be enjoyed even without any prior knowledge of the Breath of the Wild continuity or the Zelda series itself.
A Standalone Story
Unlike most Zelda games, which take advantage of the “legend” concept, Tears of the Kingdom has a standalone story that doesn’t require any previous knowledge of the series. Although the game features a returning cast of characters, the story itself is standalone. The returning characters are given a proper introduction, and the plot doesn’t rely on the previous game’s events.
Refreshing Your Memory
If you want to refresh your memory or get caught up before playing Tears of the Kingdom, there’s a full Breath of the Wild story recap available. This will help you to understand the characters and their backstory better.
The game has already received critical acclaim, including a 10/10 rating from GameSpot’s own review. The game promises to be an exciting and immersive experience for both fans and newcomers alike. So, if you’re looking for a game that stands on its own, Tears of the Kingdom is definitely worth giving a try.
