How Long is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

The new installment from Zelda, Tears of the Kingdom, is already rocking with the highest-rated games on Metacritic and many more places. Unlike the predecessor, Breath of the Wild, there is no direct main quest. You will have to look around to complete a total of 23 main quests. Needless to say, there are plenty of extra side quests and side adventures as well.

The game is massive, and the world is gigantic. With a focus on exploration and curiosity, you will have countless secrets to uncover. With that, the one question comes naturally; how lown it takes to beat the game? Well, there is a lot to explore and a lot to know, but there is certainly a definitive time. Let’s get into the depth of it.

How Long It Takes to Beat Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

The devs of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom promise to be a benchmark for the Nintendo Switch. The main focus is on exploration and curiosity, which should be enough to captivate the players for hours.

However, the whole story can take anywhere from 30 to 50 hours to complete, as it totally depends on your approach. Now, you might want to get focused on the main story questline, and then you can expect to spend around 20-30 hours. However, if you feel like enjoying the scenic beauty, you might end up spending more than 50 hours for that.

The open-world Hyrule provides plenty to explore. In Tears of the Kingdom, an airborne island is set up above. No matter how far you push yourself, and if you stick up focusing on the main story questline in Zelda: Tear of the Kingdom, a 30-hour mark on an average playthrough is assured.

As this is the Zelda series, you have to keep your eyes peeled for the side adventures. The whole story needs to be tasted rather than a speedrun schedule on weekends. You also need to adapt to the limited durability of your weapons, as well as to farm for resources to progress. See, that’s a lot to enjoy.

That’s all I had in stash for How Long It Takes to Beat Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Stick around to get some more cooked materials!
