The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel, or as we know it now, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, has to be one of the most hyped games on the horizon. A sequel to Nintendo’s 2017 megahit, it was first announced back at E3 2019, where a short trailer showed off the events following Link’s climactic battle with Calamity Ganon. It provided a sombre, even creepy first look at a new Hyrule under greater threat than ever before.

The darker tone and disturbing tease of what looks to be a zombified Ganondorf certainly got BOTW fans talking, but since then, Nintendo has kept quiet on its most highly-anticipated game. However, at the Nintendo Direct September 2022 showcase, we finally got The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom release date, and it’s not so far away.

While originally given a release window of 2022 during Nintendo’s 2021 E3 presentation, a later update gave no indication of when the much-anticipated title might arrive. Now things are plenty clearer, like the clear skies that Link is soon to float through.

When The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom release date?

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom release date finally arrives on May 12, 2023. That means it’s less than a year until you can take to the skies above Hyrule, and we are very excited.
