The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom: Leaked Art Book – Will There Be Crafting?

The art book for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which comes with the Nintendo Switch collector’s edition, has been leaked, as well as some information about Weapon Crafting options.



The art book for the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Collector’s Edition has been leaked online. This latest leak provides the most detailed insight yet into what’s to come in the game.

The book in question isn’t a standalone product: as part of the Nintendo Direct released in early February, Nintendo also announced a Collector’s Edition for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The pack will retail for $129.99 and includes items such as a Steelbook, a poster, a badge set and the aforementioned art book. The Collector’s Edition will reportedly be released on the same day as the standard edition of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, so this is a significant leak of a yet-to-be-released product.

Photos of some of the pages from the Art Book have been shared online. It is unclear where the book came from. However, fans of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or the Zelda franchise will be pleased to know that it does not contain specific details about the game’s story, open world, gameplay or mechanics. Of course, all the images are undeniably spoiler content. However, there is little significance that Zelda fans should ignore.

What is in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom art book is a lot of unlabeled concept art. Avoiding non-general spoilers, the artwork focuses on the environment, enemies, NPCs, weapons and armour of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Much of this has already been seen in Nintendo’s early trailers, but there are also many new additions.


Will we be able to create custom weapons in Tears of the Kingdom?


It seems that similar to how Link can build vehicles from zonal parts, weapons can be constructed similarly. Zonal relics will be littered throughout Hyrule. It’s not too hard to imagine that some of these will be cannons or other weapons. Looking back at the fire-breathing shield, the head mounted on it looks very similar to the heads on the front wheels of the pre-car. Whether this type of weapon could be mounted on vehicles is unknown, but certainly possible.

In addition to crafting vehicles and weapons, there may also be recipes for new types of items. The only evidence of this so far is the new targeting arrow. This gadget uses some sort of green magic, similar to other Zonal technologies, but it also has a faint orb at the end. Observant fans have identified this item as the Keese Eyeball from the classic Zelda enemy type, only seen from the back, and have provided screenshot comparisons to prove it.

This could open wide the doors to what’s possible in Tears of the Kingdom crafting and revolutionize the way players look at common monster parts.

The implication is that Nintendo is massively expanding its arsenal for players. If someone sticks to a specific playstyle or weapon type, they can build their own. Even if the durability of weapons remains utterly unchanged in TotK, this will still encourage players to explore and experiment everywhere.
