Sometime to tide you over until launch
From a recap of Breath of the Wild’s story, to the new powers and the game’s development history, GameSpot has recapped everything we know about Tears of the Kingdom.
The long-awaited follow-up to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is finally almost here. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is coming May 12 2023. Even as close as we are, though, there’s a lot that’s still a mystery. Nintendo is notoriously secretive about its games before launch, and it seems especially inclined to keep this anticipated Zelda game under wraps, but here’s everything we do know about Tears of the Kingdom.
Of all its most closely guarded secrets, the plot of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is perhaps the one held tightest to Nintendo’s proverbial chest. The game will serve as a direct sequel to its predecessor Breath of the Wild, which makes it the title set farthest in the series’ timeline.
