The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Will Cost $70

    The industry standard is seamlessly now $70.

    During today’s Nintendo Direct, it has been announced that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be the first $70 title from Nintendo. This is a shift from the standard $60 titles Nintendo has been releasing for the past three years.

    While there was no proper announcement regarding the stance, it was expected that this would be the case for Tears of the Kingdom as last night the price was listed on the eShop. Additionally, retailers began to delist the product from their stores.

    It is not clear if future titles such as Pikmin 4 will also be priced at $70 at this time.

    An epic adventure across the land and skies of Hyrule awaits in The Legend of Zelda™: Tears of the Kingdom for Nintendo Switch™. The adventure is yours to create in a world fueled by your imagination.

    In this sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll decide your own path through the sprawling landscapes of Hyrule and the mysterious islands floating in the vast skies above. Can you harness the power of Link’s new abilities to fight back against the malevolent forces that threaten the kingdom?

    We’ll surely be receiving a Direct of some sort regarding more information on Tears of the Kingdom soon. The trailer today only showed off a few minutes of gameplay and no specifics regarding the story or new innovations added to the Breath of the Wild sequel.

    Tears of the Kingdom will release at $70. While that might divide some, we don’t expect this to harm sales of the title at all. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will release on May 12, 2023.
