Reality plus a little fantasy, the laws of physics for the success of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Like its predecessor in 2017, “Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom” is the most anticipated game this year. It caused a global sensation when it went on sale on May 12, including game designers and MIT professors. The attractive element of this game is to add a little magic element under the laws of real world physics.

The “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” launched by Nintendo in 2017 has sold 29.81 million sets in the past five years since its launch. The open and immersive game world structure has also influenced many manufacturers to launch similar works, and even influenced “Pokémon Go” expands the scope of the game to a wider area.

The long-awaited sequel “Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom” has been at the top of the most anticipated game list since it was first announced at the 2019 E3 game show, and it has once again caused a lot of trouble after it went on sale on May 12 this year. A link whirlwind.

Charles Pratt, a professor at the New York University Game Research Institute, pointed out that the success factor of the Zelda world is to make the physical principles in the game conform to the real world, such as launching items in a parabola, Link falling from a high place, or When using a paraglider, the realism of the airflow and flight path is also quite high.

However, as a classic fantasy game, the magic element has become the focus of the game’s fun. Link can use magic to pause time, or lift heavy objects, as well as magic props that often appear in the game. highlights.

Lindsey Winslow, professor of experimental nuclear energy and molecular physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that “The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom” presents a fantasy and highly game-like world through superb coding.

Link can steadily jump on high-speed moving objects without falling down like people in the real world, so that the game can proceed smoothly without making things difficult for players, but all the buildings, flowers, and trees in it are in line with the real world. The aerodynamic effect of the object’s flight is also accurately in line with the real physical principles.

However, whether they are university professors, media experts, or game engineers, in recent interviews, they all expressed that they should get started as soon as possible, and then retreat and have fun for a few days to experience this masterpiece that has been waiting for many years.
