Tears of the Kingdom will have many new gameplay features for players to enjoy including a handful of exciting new abilities to use in the game. From Ultrahand which allows Link to create structures and vehicles, to Fusing which lets players forge unique weapons.

Alongside these new abilities, there are plenty of returning features as well and one particular collectible fans are hoping will return are Korok Seeds.

The adorable Koroks were an integral part of Breath of the Wild, so here’s everything you need to know about whether or not Korok Seeds are returning in Tears of the Kingdom.

Are Koroks in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

Yes, it does appear that Koroks will be making a return in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. During the recent gameplay reveal, Zelda producer, Eiji Aonuma, rode past what appeared to be a Korok before his demonstration of the new Recall ability.

While Aonuma didn’t interact with the Korok, we can clearly see that the poor little creature is struggling to lift its heavy satchel. Unlike the Breath of the Wild Koroks, this one isn’t exactly well hidden.

In fact, it appears Link can either help or choose to neglect it entirely. This could mean that certain Koroks may be tied to side quests, which reward the player with a Korok Seed or another new reward.

For now, Koroks certainly look like they’ll be present in Tears of the Kingdom, but what role they’ll play remains to be determined. We’ll update this piece as soon as we get more information, so be sure to bookmark this page.
