GameXplain have compiled an interesting video that shows you locations that can be visited in the latest Zelda game that reference previous titles’ locales like those from Wind Waker, Skyward Sword and Minish Cap.

(Spoiler warning) Check them out in the video below:

    1. That’s a real shame :-/ I’m right before the end of the game (still missing 6 shrines though), so I’d hang myself if something happened to my save now…

    2. It’s such a great game that it shouldn’t be *too* bad to restart. But, sorry to hear that dude. It’s never fun to have to restart not matter how great the game is.

      If Nintendo had cloud save data storage available on Switch from day 1, this wouldn’t really be an issue as you’d have a backup file to download.

  1. This is really the crap Gamexplain is putting out now? Anyone with eyes and half a brain can see that areas are named after old Zelda stuff. Stopped supporting them after they all went full retard on their Social medias but these videos are just sad now.

  2. The springs in which Zelda prays for her powers are literally the springs found at the end of the Skyview and Earth temples, they added a one at Mount Lanayru for wisdom but the other two are quite evidently the exact same locations.

      They are!? I’ll have to look more closely at the Spring of Power when I find it again in my restarted game. As for the Spring of Courage, any hints on the general area of where I can find it at in the Faron region? I’m just gonna end up using a guide to find it, anyway, so I don’t mind the spoiler of it’s general vicinity. Least from you, I won’t get it’s exact location where as a guide will give the exact location.

  3. If these really are ALL names representing past Zelda games, I don’t understand why Nintendo changed the spelling on them? Like, why couldn’t they just leave the names the same as they were? I noticed Tingel Island in my game, and I went there right away (didn’t notice it until after I completed 3 Divine Beasts), hoping that I would see Tingle. Needless to say, I was disappointed when I got there. No Tingle in sight. And I still can’t find that area that’s supposedly Lon Lon Ranch from Ocarina Of Time.

      When you get the map for Central Hyrule, you’ll know where it’s at. Enjoy having your heart ripped to shreds, though. D:

  4. Wait, so… There’s no little green tunic wearing man on Tingle Island? Lame. :(
    And Lon Lon Ranch just about gutted me, seriously. It was completely destroyed, burnt to a crisp. I actually got a little emotional. (After fighting that stupid Guardian tooth and nail, I mean.)

        Ancient Arrows? Pfft. What a nearly good waste of money & materials. And guardians? Nothing but pushovers. Once you get shield parrying the Guardians beam attack down, that’s all they are at that point. I’d suggest Lynels for more of a challenge. Sadly, that challenge is maddening since the Lynels might be broken with how OP they are. No bosses in the entire entirety of the Zelda franchise compare to these ball busters! *right eye twitch*

    People upset Tingle wasn’t at Tingel Island? Honestly, after thinking about it, I’m disappointed, too. Disappointed I can’t hear his pathetic squeals as I slash at him with my weapons in the vain hope I can actually kill the little greedy bastard!
