With the release of Tears of the Kingdom just over a month away, plenty of Legend of Zelda fans are already counting down the days until they can take to the picturesque plains of Hyrule again.

Some have been quenching their thirst for adventure by delving back into the series' previous entries, all of which offer plenty of nostalgia-filled hours of questing and exploration for long-time Nintendo fans, even if you aren’t prepared to try out a motion-controlled or Ocarina-based challenge run.

However, for those who’ll only be satisfied by fresh info on the upcoming game, its latest trailer certainly seems to be worth a watch, having taken Zelda fans on Reddit by storm.

What do you think of this new Zelda Tears of the Kingdom trailer?

The reactions of these hardcore Hyrule warriors can be found in a recent thread on the subreddit r/Zelda, which user overachieve kicked off by posting the trailer, which you can watch in full below.

Most of the immediate reactions of the prospective players to this near four-minute-long broadcast in the thread were laced with enough superlatives to fill several 10/10 reviews.

For example, user Icecreamcollege asked: “So is the Legend of Zelda franchise about to have three of the top five highest-rated video games ever made?”, while Specstar added: “This has to be the best trailer I've ever seen.” and ArbyLG mused: “For three beautiful minutes I remembered what childhood joy felt like.”

However, not all of the comments solely consisted of awestruck praise for the trailer, with several users seemingly calling out people who’d questioned whether the game might just be a “glorified DLC” for Breath of the Wild, an idea which looks to have become a controversial talking point among fans in recent months.

Part of the thread even devolved into an intense debate regarding how those who’d had sceptical viewpoints on this issue should be viewed.

During this exchange, user JackedTORtoise argued: “I (will) never hold a grudge against those who keep developers in check.”, to which ertsanity responded: “I don't think those glorified DLC criers ‘kept the developers in check’. They were just complaining like petulant children because the marketing wasn't exactly to their liking.”
