The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is now being compared to Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts after its latest trailer.
We saw a new Tears of the Kingdom trailer yesterday to complement the latest Nintendo Direct. The trailer gave audiences a glimpse of Link seemingly building his own car and a makeshift plane, pulling objects from the ground and sky to strap them together.
This led to some nice comparisons to Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. It seems that Zelda fans are really enjoying the next installment of the series taking inspiration from the bird and the bear and putting together any old junk to create a car from scratch that works from one way or another.
There’s a lot of love for Nuts and Bolts among Nintendo fans, that’s for sure. The comparisons aren’t making fun of Tears of the Kingdom at all, they’re just humorous comments from fans who think Nintendo could have looked to Rare’s past for some inspiration.

However, in the tweet below, Iron Pineapple noted that Link found a tire on his own in the new Tears of the Kingdom trailer. This is our most concrete proof that we will be building vehicles from scratch using individual parts in the new Zelda game, if you want to know where the Banjo-Kazooie comparisons really come from.
So I had the same "Nuts & Bolts" reaction that a lot of other people had to the new Zelda trailer, but I think that's actually kinda it.
All the vehicles have the same green glue substance, and there's a clip of Link finding a tire on its own. Vehicle building will be a thing. pic.twitter.com/iQSR8yJaqd

Oh, and there are Farming Simulator comparisons too. Maybe if Link’s weird new car can effortlessly cut the grass, we’ll really feel like we’re fixing Hyrule after an apocalyptic event. You know, in case Link didn’t have enough on his plate.
