Tears of the Kingdom has been compared to several non-Zelda titles like Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts or Just Cause, but now we can add Mario Paint to that list: players have discovered that hitting the stakes in Tears of the Kingdom produces a pitch based on their height and positioning. It’s easiest to regulate with lasers, but with it you can produce a sequence of notes.



Attaching stakes to one another also allows for a wider range of tones. And what’s the first observable tune that someone made with the discovery? What do you think? What else could it possibly be?



Given this initial discovery, we can’t wait to see what kind of “stake music” we’ll see next. My money’s on someone constructing an insanely elaborate Rube Goldberg device to play Out of Touch’s chorus in its entirety.
