It’s happening, and it’s getting closer: you can now pre-order The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. For real.
Even though it was only announced during the recent Nintendo Direct on September 13, pre-order options and listings have started popping up already. Some look a bit more promising than others, admittedly, but with no official pre-order announcement or news or timings from Nintendo itself, we will take what we can at this early stage when it comes to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom pre-orders.
We haven’t got any word on any official or retailer special editions yet, but in the meantime, you can check out your immediate options below for the Switch-exclusive game.
Following in the footsteps of the titan that was Breath of the Wild, a game that changed the open-world recipe, Tears of the Kingdom launches on May 12, 2023.

We know, however, that a Tears of the Kingdom pre-order is going to be the only way to ensure you’re experiencing the game as soon as possible.
