The Legend of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom’s Master Sword is degrading in new teaser
On the heel of a Nintendo Direct highlight The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo of America tweeted a photo of the legendary Master Sword looked rusty and corroded.
The new look of the sword was posted without context nor any accompanying text, leading to much speculation as to what caused Master Sword to look bad. There are jokes about the weapon degradation system that will almost certainly return in Tears of the Kingdom – perhaps now including the Master Sword? In Breath of the Wild, the Master Sword is unbreakable. It has infinite durability and a rechargeable clock.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a trailer for the rotten Master Sword in Tears of the Kingdom. Before the title was even known, we saw an excerpt Link holds and looks at the chipped Sword Master. On the other hand, not much else is known about the Master Sword in the game.
The standard version of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is priced at $70 – different from the usual $60 price tag of first-party Switch games – and releases on May 12. Nintendo won’t raise the price of all its games to $70, and the company will consider raising the price on one “case by case” basis.
Nintendo Voucher Program Tears of the Kingdom are not included, which means you can get the game and another title for just $100 in total. For a copy, see The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom pre-order guide.
