Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom reintroduces players to Hyrule. Of course, this is the same Hyrule they grew to love in Breath of the Wild. However, this time the world is even larger. In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, players will also explore the sky. Tears of the Kingdom will invite players to enter a sky world above Hyrule and explore a whole new world.
