The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hasn’t been out for another week, but it’s now officially available for preload. You can now preload the game a week early.

Some fans have reported having difficulty getting the preload started, but it looks like there’s a simple solution. It should start.
The digital version of Tears of the Kingdom is now preloaded on your Switch! If you still don’t see the preload (I used an NSO game voucher), cancel the preorder and preorder again and the download will pop up!

Tears of the Kingdom will be officially released on May 11th at 9pm (or May 12th at 12am) (playable for preloaded fans).
Last week we previewed Tears of the Kingdom. Apparently, everything from cooking to Breath of the Wild’s controversial weapon durability system has been changed and improved.
However, there’s still a lot we don’t know about Tears of the Kingdom until May 12, such as Ganondorf’s true role in the game’s story and what it might replace Divine Beast Dungeon.
