if you are already playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom You will know that the Hyrule map hides much more secrets than we had in its predecessor: Breath of the Wild. One of the main novelties of the game is that offers the celestial plane with archipelagos of floating islands, a complex cave system and much more to explore. In our review we told you that we estimate that it is twice or more in length with respect to the map of the previous game.
Today we present you with a most interesting curiosity, one that will blow your mind. Tea we warn that it could be considered by some players as a light spoiler that you might want to find out for yourself or that you don’t want to know about until you’re far enough through the game to know about the existence of all of Hyrule’s explorable blueprints.
This is how the surface of Hyruley and the subsoil are connected
Under the map of Hyrule there is the subsoil, which is nothing more than a additional map that is practically the same extent as the entire surface of Hyrule. This area is characterized by being completely dark, and you must find roots to gradually illuminate sections that you would otherwise have to manually light using glow seeds.
These roots have a very deep connection to what is on the surface of Hyrule. If you compare the two maps you will notice that for every shrine present on the map surface, a luminous root is located exactly below it.
This data is most useful for exploring both maps. If there’s a root you’ve discovered and you can’t find that you’ve explored a surface shrine in the same spot, you might take another look to find it and vice versa.
There is many other connections between both maps, but this is one of the most important. We suggest you continue exploring the incredible world of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom so you can discover them for yourself.
