In the early days of the Nintendo Switch, we were dealing with what is widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, games ever created: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I was. After years of waiting, as the Switch nears its end of life, we’re getting a follow-up: The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It stars the same main character…probably. There are still many things we don’t know!
Basically, all we know for sure is that items can be fused to create things. Merge into sticks. boom. stick spear. I’m sold Well, to be fair, I actually pre-ordered it years ago without knowing anything more than “it exists, it’s a follow-up to Breath of the Wild, so I need it.” Did.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering Tears of the Kingdom, there’s no shortage of places to do so. Some retailers throw in cute little treats to entice you into dropping money. For example, Best Buy throws in free art prints (worth $9.99!), Provide a plaque. I think they want the giveaway to take a little away from the pain of being the first $70 Nintendo Switch game in its price range.

If you can’t wait until May and want to get your hands on some Tears of the Kingdom, you can pick up the Nintendo Switch OLED The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Special Edition console. The joycons and dock are decked out in designs that evoke the aesthetics of the game, and honestly, he’s one of the best special edition Switch consoles of all time, at least in my opinion.
Getting your hands on one of these consoles is pretty easy. All major retailers have it in stock and available for pre-order ahead of its April 28th release. If you’re still using a day one Nintendo Switch, it might be worth upgrading. The OLED screen makes a big difference in handheld mode, with bright, vibrant colors and very intense display. If you’re a collector, I don’t know why you’re reading this.
There’s also a special edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller from Tear of the Kingdom that you can’t get your hands on. will you do? perhaps. It’s kind of hard to say. Nintendo is nothing, if not unpredictable, when it comes to how it handles special edition hardware. Please find the Pokemon Switch.
Also, you may not find the Tears of the Kingdom Collector’s Edition in stock sooner or at all. But again, Nintendo! There may or may not be tens of thousands ready to deploy. It’s basically like gambling. Earn 1 and win a game, steelbook cover, pin set, artbook, and Tears of the Kingdom poster. It’s pretty sweet. I don’t know if it’s worth $129.99, but I managed to secure it. Obviously for research purposes.
Also, you can now pre-order the Tears of the Kingdom Link amiibo for your collection. Hopefully the new game has better amiibo integration than its predecessor. Don’t get me wrong. But I crave more. The downside for me is that if I improve, I might regret selling my Wolf Link amiibo.

If you want to show off your Legend of Zelda fandom, we have plenty Zelda Apparel and Collectibles in the IGN Store, covering the entire series, from OG on the Famicom to Breath of the Wild. Whether you’re Toon Link or not, or craving a more ultra-realistic version, there’s something for you to enjoy.
To expand your knowledge of Zelda, Dark Horse has excellent book series: Hyrule Historia, Art & Artifacts, and The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia. Hyrule Historia introduces the timeline of the series, which I personally think is a bit silly.The three-book set is definitely worth picking up, but they’re all great standalone Zelda experiences. I especially like Art & Artifacts because I love seeing super detailed illustrations of the Master Sword. But I’m not normal either.
Viz Media handles the publication of many The Legend of Zelda comic book adaptations, available one at a time or in various box sets. they are very nice you should check them out.
there is also Spectacular links to past comic collections, written and drawn by Shotaro Ishinomori, also by Viz Media. A collection of comics that first appeared on Nintendo Power in the early 1990s, and as a living and avid Nintendo Power reader, I re-read those particular issues until I was in tatters. It’s nice and convenient to have them all in one book. I strongly recommend it.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out on May 12th, which isn’t too far away, but I can’t get over waiting until it’s probably the best game ever made. I’m very optimistic, even if it’s not clear yet. In the meantime, hopefully we can pick up some cooler items. If not, you can find something to fill the hole in your heart in the shape of The Legend of Zelda.
