A heads-up for those looking to stay spoiler-free ahead of the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: it looks like the art book as leaked online.

Over the weekend, over 200 pages of what looks to be The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom art book leaked online and seeped through various channels. We won’t be sharing any links or posting any of the leak here, though we’ve taken a look ourselves to verify its existence.

Without divulging any details, it does look like the art book for the upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel. And the nice part is, from a cursory scan, nothing jumped out as an obvious spoiler. Still, it’s worth being aware that this info is out there, in case you want to go into Tears of the Kingdom as fresh as possible.

It’s especially interesting that an art book would leak so far ahead of the release date. We’re still a ways out from Tears of the Kingdom‘s release date of May 12, 2023. This art book is part of what’s included in the collector’s edition of the game. It is strange that so much info would make it out from the book, three months ahead of time.

Still, fans are likely hungry for more information, as it feels like we don’t know a ton about this new Zelda. Points like the main antagonist, or the reason why Hyrule is now home to so many floating islands, are all still theories at this time. I’m sure fans are likely to pick this Zelda art book apart looking for any info on what could be arriving in May.

In the meantime, rev up those muted keywords and hashtags if you’re looking to avoid all of it. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arrives on May 12, 2023.
