The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – AKA Breath of the Wild 2 – has been rated in Korea.
As spotted by Gematsu, the rating request submitted to the board and published yesterday includes a brief summary of the game (in Korean, naturally) and a 12+ age rating.
According to Google Translate, Tears of the Kingdom has been described as a “role-playing game for Nintendo Switch in which the stage of the adventure to find Zelda expands into the sky”.
The 12+ age rating has seemingly been applied due to the games “mild violence” and attacks on “living things”.
