Not least because of that Tears of the kingdom contains many more shrines than Breath of the wild. This is largely thanks to the addition of the Sky Islands region, which contains dozens of these miniature dungeons to discover, while Tears of the kingdom The surface map version of Hyrule offers as many shrines as Breath of the wild did
