The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Recall explained

Find out about Recall in The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom with its powers, different uses and applications within Hyrule and the sky islands.

The Legend Of Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom Ascend

Recall is a brand-new power in The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom which allows Link to rewind time to re-enact actions but in reverse. For example, if a Bokoblin throws a spear at Link, he can reverse this action to make the spear fly back to hit the Bokoblin.

As one of the new powers added to The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom amongst four new powers for Link to play around with it is the most simple. Ultrahand, Ascend are the others. Each of them has its own unique use to help Link explore Hyrule as creatively as possible. As a brand-new power, knowing how to use it is the first step to truly understanding the power behind Recall.

In a gameplay trailer for Tears of the Kingdom, we saw how Recall can help players to access seemingly unreachable parts of Hyrule. The sky islands are a new addition and one of the simplest ways to reach them is with the Recall power. As rocks sometimes fall off of these, all Link has to do is walk up to one of these rocks, set up his Recall power and jump on top.

Similar to a lift, Link will be lifted back to the original spot that the rock fell from and have full access to these islands.

Using the Recall power is very simple and reminiscent of how powers were activated in The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Players must select Recall from the power pinwheel, aim at an object and click the corresponding button to make the item recall its path. Recall seems like a brilliant power to use in shrine puzzles and is sure to bring a new element of fun to the gameplay in Tears of the Kingdom.

Other possibilities of Recall could be a way to correct mistakes. Say you’re building a flying vehicle and accidentally drop a fan down a ravine, with Recall, Link can bring the object back up to continue building his flying creation. Recall does not happen immediately but seems to go a little slower than the speed at which the item moved in the first place.

However, one thing to remember about this power is that it is not able to reverse time all over Hyrule. So, getting defeated by a Lynel does not mean you can use Recall to escape. It only works on solitary objects which have recently moved. Additionally, we are speculating that Recall cannot be used on every object in the game such as enemy Hinoxes or other larger entities. But, of course, this has not yet been confirmed by Nintendo or found in-game.

Recall is a new and exciting power that taps into the creative sides of players which will see many players getting missions completed in new and exciting ways. So, now you know how to use this new power in Hyrule, why not have a look at all of The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom powers and abilities to make sure you have the basics covered before loading up the game?
