Unleash Your Imagination
Here are just some of the ways Link can tap into his new abilities in creative - and sometimes surprising - ways.
Explore: Link must travel across the far-reaching land and skies of Hyrule to discover the origins of the mysterious gloom that is plaguing the kingdom.
Create: Use Link’s powerful new abilities like Ultrahand and Fuse to make audacious weapons and craft creative ways to travel across the landscape.
Discover: Find new ways to build, battle, and play as you try to uncover the secret menace that threatens Hyrule.
Transform the way you play with Link’s new abilities.
Ultrahand: Using the new Ultrahand ability, Link can pick up, move, and rotate objects. He can even attach things together to create bridges, vehicles, and more!
Fuse: Magically fuse objects to Link’s current weapon, shield, or arrow to increase durability, damage, or even add a new effect. Experiment with lots of different combinations to come up with surprising - and sometimes hilarious - results!
Ascend: Add a new dimension to your exploration with Ascend, which gives Link the ability to pass through solid objects above him. Rise up through ceilings, hillsides, and even certain enemies to create seemingly impossible shortcuts.
Recall: Use Recall to reverse an object’s movement, letting Link ride fallen boulders skyward, recover thrown weapons, or send projectiles back where they came from.
