When is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Coming Out? – Answered
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom releases on May 12, 2023. This information came at the end of the September 13, 2022, Nintendo Direct, where we got a short but sweet trailer. In the trailer, which can be seen below, we see Link soaring through the air, riding a rock into the sky, and landing on some sort of stone glider. Check it out.
There’s a lot to dissect here; what does “Tears of the Kingdom” mean for the themes of the game? We see a torn-apart Hyrule, and since it’s a sequel to Breath of the Wild, we don’t know the entire evil we face. In total, we’ve only seen a small glimpse of this game from all of the trailers released so far. We know that exploring both the land and sky is a massive part of the experience this time around, but outside of this, we know virtually nothing about the story or gameplay elements.
Well, that’s everything you need to know about when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out. Be sure to check out all of our other coverage of the September 13, 2022, Nintendo Direct.
