The Sheikah Slate Seems To Have Been Replaced By Link’s Arm In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom!

Players have been wondering what purpose Link’s arm will serve in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom since it was first seen in early trailers, with the most recent trailer implying that it will replace the Sheikah Slate.

It’s only natural that the Sheikah Slate would make a comeback in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, given the important role it played in Breath of the Wild’s numerous menus and abilities. However, whether or not the slate would be expanded upon its return is still up in the air.

Since the new gameplay video, including Ganondorf’s voice, reveal and all new vehicle mechanics, was unveiled during February’s Nintendo Direct, the new role of Link’s arm might have been overlooked. Observant viewers would have seen that Link was apparently channeling his rune skills through his arm, rather than his Sheikah Slate.

From the trailer’s up-close shots, it also appears that Link is no longer carrying the Sheikah Slate, which may indicate that the Tears of the Kingdom will be used to strengthen Link’s arm in its place.

Changing Tears Of The Kingdom’s Mechanics From Slate To Arm Is A Welcome One

The Sheikah Slate, first shown in Breath of the Wild, was likely meant to stand in for the Switch or Wii U GamePad during the game’s early stages of development. The game made use of Switch features, such as motion controls, to create a seamless transition between the real console and its virtual representation. Since Breath of the Wild integrates the Switch and Sheikah Slate, many of these mechanics feel at home in the game.

However, this also implies that the Sheikah Slate was crucial to the proper functioning of several of Breath of the Wild’s most important features.

Therefore, Nintendo has the issue of figuring out how to develop such a fundamental tool that contained so many talents in a natural, justifiable way, given that Tears of the Kingdom is expected to do so.

To solve this problem, one should only ignore these preconceptions, put the Slate to regular use again, and devise game logic that “unlocks” previously concealed capabilities. Similar features may be seen in Breath of the Wild’s downloadable content.

Possible Clues To Tears Of The Kingdom’s Plot Linked To His Arm

Whatever has happened to Link’s arm in Tears of the Kingdom must be significant beyond the game’s mechanics, as it has been shown prominently in trailers and marketing materials.

It’s possible that the Sheikah Slate has fused with Link, giving him its powers even if it’s now missing. At the very end of the latest video, though, Link is seen lunging away from a surge of Malice, his arm blackened but unenthused with any technology.

This seems to suggest that two things will have to happen before Link’s arm matches the footage. To begin, Link, as seen in prior trailers, must be struck by Ganondorf’s Malice.

Sheikah technology is then applied to Link presumably in an effort to mitigate or otherwise manage the ill consequences of this Malice. Similar to Twilight Princess and Wolf Link’s metamorphosis, Tears of the Kingdom may be setting up a narrative in which Link uses a curse he receives from Ganondorf to his benefit.

Robbie will have you visit the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab in Akkala in search of Travel Medallion prototypes, which will allow you to set up rapid travel gates everywhere in the world. Putting it to use is as simple as entering your inventory, identifying the current location, then placing the medallion there to create a gate. To its full potential, the Travel Medallion can create three gates, but only after receiving an upgrade. First, let’s get this feature unlocked.

The Akkala Ancient Technology Laboratory may be found in the upper right corner of Hyrule. You should use fast travel to reach as close as possible, then continue on foot from there. From the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower, you can launch your paraglider and cover a lot of ground. Even though it’s a long trip, you can utilize that time to visit shrines or hunt monsters to fulfill Robbie’s other improvement requirements.

Prepare for combat once you’ve identified the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab at (4510, 3153, 0247). If you try to enter through the entrance, you’ll be attacked by members of the Yiga Clan, who will fire red projectiles at you, forcing you to duck and slash your way to safety.
