PSA: Looks like Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has leaked online

Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Keep an eye out for spoilers

We’re under two weeks out from the release date of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. But it seems like you’ll already want to start locking in those muted words and phrases. It looks like Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has leaked.

Images and clips of the upcoming Switch game began to circulate at some point over the last 24 hours, on various gaming forums. This includes footage of areas both seen and unseen in prior footage.

We won’t be sharing any of the information here, either on what or where it is. Suffice it to say, I’ve looked, and can at least verify that it looks quite real.

While we won’t share spoilers here, it’s still a good idea to start keeping an eye out on various forums if you want to stay completely unspoiled. My personal recommendation is to make use of any keyword-blocking features on social media, if available, and also be wary of browsing any “new” or “recently updated” tabs. And also, be nice to your local forum moderator, as they’re about to have a very long 11 days between now and the release date.

A new Zelda is on the horizon

It is, again, wild to think that we’re just about 11 days out from the release of the sequel to Breath of the Wild. First announced back at E3 2019, and later officially named, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a direct sequel to 2017’s Breath of the Wild. We’ve seen teasers and learned about Link’s inventive new hand powers, and seen plenty of teasers for what’s in store for Hyrule.

Now, we’re just a little over a week out from the full launch of Tears of the Kingdom. May your feeds be spoiler-free as we rocket toward May 12.
