Let’s speculate a bit: what will the duration of The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom actually be in your opinion? Follow us in this dedicated article
The launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is so close you can almost touch it with your finger. On May 12, “the sequel to Breath of the Wild” arrives, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, to cheer the fans who since the closure of the first title six years ago could not wait to be able to return to that Hyrule. And, as we said, now we are. So while the latest details on the game emerge and we prepare for the launch with many themed articles (including which games to finish before Tears of the Kingdom and a prologue to the new skills of the title), we go back to talking about technical details that still Nintendo didn’t eviscerate. For example: How long will Tears of the Kingdom take to finish? What is its duration?
Although, as of this writing, the length of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has not been officially confirmed by Nintendo, we can speculate a bit going back in time. The Zelda games have never been short titles and, considering that we are talking about the direct sequel to Tears of the Kingdom and also considering the fact that we know the size of the world we are going to explore, we can attempt a very simple estimate. The game world is in fact based entirely on that of Breath of the Wild, so we can expect a rather similar duration.
How long is Tears of the Kingdom? Let’s try an estimate
The completion of the story it should therefore take about 40 hours in total, with marked variations based on your style of play. If, on the other hand, you decide to complete the side missions and all the additional content, exploring all of Hyrule and also solving all the environmental puzzles, we can only expect a duration that reaches or at least close to 100 hours, as happened for Breath of the Wild .
