The Legend of Zelda: The Shadow King is the 20th game in the Legend of Zelda series (excluding non-canon games and spinoffs) and a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It was released on the Nintendo Switch in Q2 2021.

Defaulttabsk.png Development

In 2017, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. It received critical acclaim from almost all reviewers for its pioneering open-world structure, but attracted some criticism for its lack of traditional dungeons and weapon durability system.

At the end of Nintendo's 2019 E3 direct, Nintendo showed a short trailer for a yet-unnamed sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The trailer showed Link and Zelda exploring in a dark cave, until what appeared to be Ganondorf's corpse awoken from a seal placed by a mysterious green hand, which then fused to Link's hand. This fuelled speculation on what the glowing green hand was and whose corpse it was. Nintendo later confirmed that the sequel was being produced due to the developemnt team having too many ideas for DLC.

Defaulttabsk.png Plot Synopsis

In the following text, the abbreviation AC stands for (years) After Calamity.

Hylian Renaissance

After the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the defeat of Calamity Ganon, Hyrule underwent a renaissance. The decontamination of Central Hyrule allowed for the resettlement of Castle Town and the conversion of the Hyrule Field into farmland. The reverse-engineering of ancient technology spurred further scientific discoveries. Hyrule has came to peace with the formerly warlike Kamikari Khanate to the west

Champion Festival and Ganondorf's Awakening

On the 30th anniversary of Calamity Ganon's defeat, Link, Zelda, and the Champions' successors gathered at the newly-rebuilt Sacred Ground


As a last refuge, Zelda sealed herself inside Link's Spirit Hand.

Advanced Techniques

Objects
Move Input required Description
Aerial Cyclone Hold Y while gliding Link charges up his equipped weapon and spins around his axis of velocity, damaging all enemies in a certain radius, dealing 1x damage. Uses up a large amount of Link's stamina, though.
Block ZL + A Link blocks an incoming attack. Leaves open a short window for Link to attack back.
Bullet Time Hold ZL in air Link draws his bow or other ranged weapon, slowing down time for as long as he holds ZL, whilst using up stamina. It ends when Link fires the weapon or runs out of stamina.
Dash Attack Hold Y while running Link charges up his equipped weapon and dashes forwards, skewering any enemies in his path. Deals 1.5x damage. However, it uses up a large amount of Link's stamina.
Down Thrust Hold Y while falling Link charges up his equipped weapon while falling, causing a shockwave that stuns enemies and has a chance to disarm them. If Link's weapon lands on an emeny, they will be skewered and dealt 1.5x damage plus any fall damage Link would take, before creating a shockwave.
Flurry Rush ZL + A + Repeatedly Y Link attacks repetedly after landing a correctly timed hit after successfully blocking an enemy's attack. Link can repeatedly attack an enemy during a window of bullet time.
Parry ZL + A + Y Link attacks in the short window after successfully blocking an emeny's attack. Deals 1.5x damage.
Shield Surf ZL + X + A Link jumps on his shield and surfs downhill. The effectiveness of this varies depending on the surface (snow and wet grass are best, dry grass and sand work well, and rock barely works) and shield.
Sneakstrike Y at enemies that haven't noticed you Link attacks an emeny that hasn't noticed him, dealing 2x damage.
Spin Attack Hold Y Link charges up his equipped weapon and spins around in a circle, damaging all enemies in a certain radius. Can be charged up, at the cost of stamina. If used with a spear, instead becomes a flurry of strikes. Deals standard damage, but hits multiple times.
