The Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom pronunciation debate is over

Turns out you can pronounce the word ‘tears’ in two different ways – either as a synonym for rip or the word for the stuff that comes out of my eyes whenever I watch Wall-E – and the internet couldn’t decide how to do it for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. But there’s a definitive answer on how to pronounce Breath of the Wild’s sequel, thanks to Nintendo chiming in.

As confirmed by Eurogamer, it’s ‘tears’ as in water from your eyes, not something that’s been torn. I mean, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s pronunciation wouldn’t have been such a mystery in the first place if we just looked over to its developer’s home for its native name, where the word ‘tiāzu’ is the first of its subtitle. And that’s all about crying, so…

Still, I guess it’s nice to have it confirmed. Either way, there are still definitely rips made in the platforms in the sky, where Link slithers through a strange magical puddle, so who knows whether there are more secrets to uncover. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I probably sound a bit wacky, so check out the trailer below to see what I mean.
