The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is now available for preorder, with a price tag of $70. The sequel to Breath of the Wild is without a doubt one of the most anticipated games out there right now. When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released alongside the Nintendo Switch, it completely took the world by storm. Nintendo and Zelda’s fans have high hopes for the upcoming sequel to Breath of the Wild, and the recent Nintendo Direct certainly helped.
On February 8, a Nintendo Direct presentation piqued fans’ interest to new heights. There was a lot to take in, and one of them was Gameboy titles coming to the Nintendo Switch Online subscription. This year has a lot to look forward to, and after all this time, fans are especially excited for Tears of the Kingdom.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom trailer was announced at the Nintendo Direct, and most fans of the franchise were pleased with what they saw.
The end of the trailer revealed that preorders for the Zelda game would be available once the Direct concluded. As gamers flocked to Nintendo’s online store and other retailers to check out the game and make their purchases, they noticed that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom cost $70. Many people were taken aback by this, especially since the Nintendo Switch is considered a last-generation console.
The price may be slightly higher than what some fans expected, which is most likely why Nintendo decided to re-release Nintendo Switch Online game vouchers on the eShop. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is included in the voucher program, which allows Nintendo Switch Online members to pay only $99.98 for two Switch games. So, if gamers decide to buy the upcoming Zelda sequel along with any other eligible game, they’ll be saving around $20 on digital games.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is set to release on May 12, 2023, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
