Few things bring out my inner child like a big Nintendo announcement.
The iconic video game company just announced the release of Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for Nintendo Switch, an epic adventure following Link through the mythical world of Hyrule and its vast array of sky islands.
The game itself will be released in mid-May. You can currently pre-order the game via Best Buy here. Watch a trailer for it over on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Nintendo *also* announced a special Nintendo Switch featuring a special design from Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The OLED Model Nintendo Switch system features a 7-inch OLED screen, along with an adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage (somes reserved for use by the system), and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode. You can play it on your TV while it’s docked, as well as in handheld mode when Joy-Con controllers are attached.
Reception for the new Nintendo Switch has been enthusiastic: Almost 2 million people have watched Nindendo’s reveal video on Twitter in 24 hours.
It’s currently available for pre-order at Best Buy. It’s priced at $359.99.
Best Buy says the product is in high demand via its website and will probably sell out soon, so get those pre-orders in ASAP if you want one.
Now I can’t get the Zelda theme music out of my head. Truly a shut up and take my money move for Nindendo.
