If you ever wanted a sign that developers listen to players, it's this!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was known for its incredible secrets and hidden details, and one was the appearance of a lone apple underneath the Bridge in Kakariko Village. It was just there, with no rhyme or reason.

This mystery apple became surprisingly endearing among fans leading to plenty of theories about the secrets it holds, memes about the mysterious fruit, and even poetry written about it. Thankfully, the legacy of this hidden detail continues in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Now, sequels are inherently expected to improve upon what came before, adding more into the mix and increasing the scale. As such, there are now two apples under the Kakariko Village bridge. The devs listened to the fans and made sure to deliver.

There is still no explanation for why or how these tasty snacks made it into such a specific place, but at least now, the first one won't be alone anymore.

In truth, it's likely just a joke from developers, but it's another sign of how much there is to uncover in the game.
