How did Nintendo pull this off?!
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was one of the five releases GameSpot gave a 10/10 in 2023. It showcased a potential that stems from a deeply intimate familiarity with a game engine that can only come from having an experienced development team, capable of pushing an aged console at the end of its life cycle to its absolute limits, and producing magic.
In the video above, GameSpot takes a close look at all the amazing things that Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom does. Not only is it impressive on a technical level, the things this game pulls off on a mechanics level are just as impressive, if not more so. The fact that it’s all done on the Switch, which was modest hardware when it launched 6+ years ago, makes the release that much more mind-blowing.
