The Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom Set For May 12th, 2023

Now I Almost Want To Cry

Tears of the Kingdom

Fans hoping to play the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in early 2023 may get their chance, depending on what they consider early 2023. While many hoped that it would release in March like its predecessor, Nintendo revealed a planned release date and title during today’s Nintendo Direct that was a bit later. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is set to release on Nintendo Switch on May 12th, 2023.

Along with this new name and date we got our first new footage from the game in over a year. While that footage is still brief, it gives us a few hints. The climbing from Breath of the Wild is clearly back. We also see Link exploring the skies a lot, making one wonder if there will be links to Skyward Sword or at least some things drawn from it. We even see Link riding a flying machine.

We’ll have more on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom when its revealed. You can check out the new trailer below and see if it makes you tear up.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
