As Tears of the Kingdom will soon celebrate its first anniversary, a Zelda fan creates and launches an explosive display to mark the occasion.

  • A player celebrated The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s anniversary with festive missiles.
  •  The rockets featured various Zonai devices as well as Dazzlefruits and Bomb Flowers.
  •  With sales exceeding 20 million units, TOTK remains a top-selling Switch exclusive game, and it will be interesting to see what clips come from that large community next.

With the first anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom right around the corner, a fan chose to celebrate by creating some festive rockets in the game and sharing a video of their efforts. The Tears of the Kingdom fan received compliments from other players, who expressed interest in the items used on each rocket.

Released on May 12, 2023, Tears of the Kingdom is set in the same version of Hyrule as Breath of the Wild. One of the main features of Tears of the Kingdom that quickly sets it apart from its predecessor was Link’s new abilities, including Ultrahand and Autobuild, which allowed players to combine various materials and create various contraptions for clearing objectives and wiping out hordes of foes. Within nine months of release, Tears of the Kingdom‘s sales reached over 20 million units, making it the ninth best-selling Switch exclusive game of all time. With its first anniversary right around the corner, it remains to be seen what Tears of the Kingdom‘s updated sales will be after a year on the market.

Given its reputation as one of the top open-world games of the current generation, the creativity of Tears of the Kingdom players has become one of the game’s main selling points. On Reddit, a user named Ultrababouin shared a short video of their latest project on the r/HyruleEngineering subreddit. In their video, Ultrababouin showcased their efforts in action with a video that lasted one minute and 29 seconds. The video footage provided close-ups of each missile, giving Zelda fans a glimpse of how to make them.

Zelda Fan Celebrates Tears of the Kingdom’s First Anniversary In An Explosive Way

As demonstrated by the Tears of the Kingdom video, the base of each missile stood on three Zonai rockets. Two rockets stood straight up, and one was angled forward by 30 to 45 degrees toward its intended target. Each rocket provided some thrust to get the missiles off the ground. Ultrababouin then attached various Zonai devices, turrets, and mounted lasers to form the shape of the rockets. Some Dazzlefruits and Bomb Flowers were placed throughout the missile tips as a makeshift payload that could be remotely dropped. According to Ultrababouin, they used a method called fuse entanglement that allowed them to kill the battery and subsequently drop the payload on some unsuspecting bokoblin camps. The results ranged from stunning the bokoblins to taking them out in one fell swoop.

Some r/HyruleEngineering users complimented Ultrababouin for their continued efforts. Although Tears of the Kingdom has left a lasting legacy, only time will tell what the Zelda series will do in future entries.
