The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Preorder Guide

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom releases on May 12 and costs $70. There's also a fancy Collector's Edition and a special-edition Nintendo Switch OLED.


We're now less than a month away from the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Nintendo has debuted the final trailer, so all that's left to do now is wait as patiently as possible. If you're a big fan of the series, you will likely want to preorder Tears of the Kingdom ahead of its May 12 launch, especially since you can secure some cool preorder bonuses. And there are several other Tears of the Kingdom products, including a couple that you can get your hands on later this month. The game is joined by a gorgeous special-edition Switch OLED console, Switch Pro controller, Link Amiibo, and carrying case. We've rounded up all of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom preorder details you need to know below.

The console has remained in stock far longer than the $130 Collector's Edition and Switch Pro controller, both of which sold out very quickly. But if you're interested in the special-edition console, we'd recommend locking in your preorder ASAP. We'd also suggesting grabbing the Link Amiibo, as it only recently became available again after being out of stock for weeks.

Back to the game: All major retailers had been taking preorders at the original $60 price point, so if you happened to order a copy before the change, you lucked out. You can actually still get Tears of the Kingdom for $60 if you preorder from Super Shop using promo code GMSPTZLDA. The only downside here is that Super Shop doesn't offer release-date delivery. Alternatively, you can use the Switch eShop's voucher promotion to get digital copies of Tears of the Kingdom and another game for $100.

Multiple retailers have unique preorder bonuses for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Best Buy is giving away an exclusive art print, GameStop has a wooden plaque, and Walmart has a wall scroll. A gold limited-edition wall scroll (numbered to 5,000) sold out very quickly, but it has since been replaced by a black wall scroll. Keep in mind that all three of these preorder bonuses are only available while supplies last. Since they are physical goodies, not in-game content, it's likely that some or all of them will sell out before launch.
