Some of these mechanics could be intuited in the last trailer shown by Nintendo during its presentation at E3 2021, although these patents could have almost completely confirmed them and would also explain their operation within the gameplay of this familiar but different proposal .
The mechanics of ascending high ground would allow us to freely travel up from the ground and traverse a raised platform or suspended ground above us , something we could see in the E3 trailer. Regarding the rewinding of objects, the patent details that it would allow us to point to different specific objects with the intention of reversing their movement backwards through time ; again, this mechanic could be seen in a part of the latest official preview.

What will be the story that we will be told this time? Will we only play with Link or will there be more playable characters ? Fans try to solve these and other unknowns with their own personal theories , although it will not be until 2022 – the last approximate launch date offered by Nintendo – that we can discover the mysteries and secrets that this new exclusive installment for Nintendo Switch hides .
