New Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Gameplay Showcase Coming This Week

Zelda fans can sit down for 10 minutes of Tears of the Kindom gameplay on March 28.


With just a few more months left to go before the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo has announced that it'll show "roughly" 10 minutes of gameplay from the Breath of the Wild sequel this week. The new footage will be available to watch on Nintendo's official YouTube channel at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET on March 28, and will be hosted by producer Eiji Aonuma.

Tears of the Kingdom is expected to be Nintendo's biggest game release of 2023 and will be released on May 12 exclusively for Switch. Coming six years after the critically acclaimed launch of Breath of the Wild, Nintendo has kept details on the game mostly under wraps, save for a rare trailer occasionally shown off during one of the company's Direct livestreams.

The new Zelda adventure is the first Nintendo-published game to sell for $70, but the company believes that the quality of the game will help justify the $10 price increase. Nintendo has added that not every one of its Switch games will cost $70, and if you're looking to grab Tears of the Kingdom for a more traditional price, here's how you can save $10. Alternatively, you can use Switch game Vouchers to get two games for $100, and Tears of the Kingdom is eligible for this promotion.

Preorders for Tears of the Kingdom are now live, and if you live in Japan, you can pick the game up with a very nice fork or spoon as part of a preorder deal on that side of the world.
