Get your wallets ready, just in case
Nintendo still has yet to officially confirm the existence of a Switch OLED model based on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. However, evidence has piled up which points to the new model most likely being the real deal.
Now, the rumor is growing with yet another rumor, as Redditor u/Blubbpaule shared an image from Nintendo Prime of a new internal SKU from retail store GameSpot. The SKU is for a brand new Switch model with a date of March 10th, 2023 (see below). With Tears of the Kingdom releasing a couple of months after that date, this seems like it would be a prime time to start accepting pre-orders for a special console tie-in.
Now, things like this pop up all the time in the world of retail video games, and they don’t always lead to anything. This certainly isn’t a confirmation of something happening. However, if there really is a Tears of the Kingdom Switch OLED, it does seem like a safe bet that we’ll be able to pre-order it at GameStop beginning on March 10th. Stay tuned for more info!
