Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the long-anticipated sequel to 2017’s Breath of the Wild, will be released for Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. The title was revealed at the end of a new trailer that premiered during today’s Nintendo Direct showcase, which teases a shattered Hyrule and some of the new stasis powers that Link will have at his disposal.

From a Nintendo roundup:

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, the latest entry in the storied Legend of Zelda series will take you up into the skies and an expanded world that goes beyond that! Look forward to Link’s massive adventure starting again when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, drops for Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.

Nintendo’s official page for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be found here, although there’s little in the way of content aside from the game’s May release date and a piece of key art. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 27.14 million copies since its release in 2017, according to numbers shared on Nintendo.co.jp.

  1. I'm always surprised when I see these Nintendo franchises are still going.

    I mean, sure, the original Legend of Zelda, and Link on the 8 bit Nintendo are classics, but these franchises feel so campy today.

    They probably should have stayed in the 8 bit era.

    Side Note:

    I didn't own them as a kid, but I borrowed them from my friends.

    Now I have my very own set:

    Unlike the sets I borrowed from friends in the 80's, these don't smell like my friends parents smoking habit :p

    They aren't in mint collectable condition or anything. These are just for my own nostalgic enjoyment

    Breath of the Wild was pretty darn good. I think Zelda is one of the few franchises that has stayed relevant for this long without somehow getting stale or overly-repetitive. Not every title has been a smash hit, but it's been pretty solid throughout.

    Actually Link to the Past on SNES was f*cking awesome, to me the absolute best game in the series, and Link's Awakening on GB/GBC after that was also fantastic. They completely smoke the 8-bit games, especially that weird Zelda II.

    The Snes one is still the best
    D4mn straight.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    EDIT: @Zarathustra you reminded me that in the late 90s, all my NES games, controllers, and peripherals were stolen. Left me with the system, its cables, and AC adapter though. I spent the 2000s and 2010s getting back most of my library. I don't have everything I used to have, but I also have a lot of stuff I never had before. In the 2000s I replaced the old worn 72-pin cartridge connector in the NES. Then in recent years I got this as a present: https://www.arcadeworks.net/products/blw?_pos=1&_sid=37149421d&_ss=r (Some info:

    My SNES has a dead CPU and my Super Famicom has a bad trace going to the VRAM chip, but my NES is still kickin', and still sees use.
