Nintendo reveals what happened to Breath of the Wild’s Sheikah tech in Tears of the Kingdom
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule was packed with hundreds of shrines, guardians and towers, mysterious relics of the past that tied into the game’s core plot. However, nearly all of that technology had completely vanished by the start of the game’s sequel, Tears of the Kingdom, with no in-game explanation. Well, as noticed by Twitter user ZeldaLoreYT, the game’s director Hidemaro Fujibayashi finally revealed what happened to it all in an interview with UK news outlet The Telegraph earlier today. Here’s what he had to say:
Essentially, it just disappeared. Nobody in the game’s universe knows why, and seemingly nobody even cares. It’s a bit of a disappointing answer to such a big mystery, but at least we have some sort of explanation as to why Tears of the Kingdom’s Hyrule lost many of its landmarks.
