The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been out in the wild for a weekend now, and fans are spotting all kinds of fun easter eggs and tidbits all over the place. One of our favorites? Link’s cooking animations have gotten the smallest, sweetest musical upgrade. Yes, Link sings now!
In Breath of the Wild, Link’s cooking animation was pretty wholesome on its own. He would toss the ingredients into a pot, hum a few abstract notes cheerfully as they stewed, and then express delight when the dish was done (assuming it wasn’t…dubious). But in Tears of the Kingdom, his cooking is even more adorable, because Link actually sings multiple recognizable songs from his own games while food is cooking.
We’ve caught our buddy Link singing his own main theme:
The Ballad of the Wind Fish:
and Saria’s Theme:
Others around the internet have reported hearing even more tunes from Link, so you’ll have to do a lot of cooking if you want to hear them all. It’s an adorable bit of almost fourth wall breaking behavior from our adorable protagonist. What’s more though, it’s part of a much larger and more defined personality that Nintendo has endeavored to give Link in recent games, from his dialogue options to smaller mannerisms like these. Just another reason we really love Link here.
