Tears of the Kingdom devs talk about the game’s tragic conclusion

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom takes players on an epic journey woven with mystery and ancient legacies, 

introducing a captivating new chapter in the world of Hyrule. At the onset of the game, players witness a pivotal moment when Link  

awakens with a mysterious appendage—a gift from Rauru, the first king of Hyrule and a member of the enigmatic Zonai race. 

The Zonai, an ancient civilization, serve as a fundamental yet elusive component of the game's lore, despite their absence in Link's era 

Their advanced technology empowers Link, granting him the ability to construct machines that aid his quest through 

the vast expanse of Hyrule. Rauru, appearing in spirit form, becomes a guiding force for Link, steering him on the path laid out by Princess Zelda. 

Polygon had the opportunity to delve deeper into the creation of Rauru and the Zonai civilization during an interview with Zelda producer  

Eiji Aonuma and Tears of the Kingdom director Hidemaro Fujibayashi. Fujibayashi shed light on the team's approach to weaving 

the narrative around Rauru and integrating the essence of the Zonai into the game.
