‘Tears of the Kingdom’ price, release date, and preorder details: Where to buy the ‘BOTW’ sequel
Availability will probably be quite limited — this is a special-edition Zelda console we’re talking about — so we recommend pre-ordering your unit well ahead of time. At the time of writing, it was available online through Best Buy(Opens in a new tab) and Target(Opens in a new tab) and in person at GameStop(Opens in a new tab) stores. Note that it does not include a copy of the game itself.
If you don’t have a spare $360 to drop on a new console but are still interested in a commemorative accessory, TOTK will be joined by a themed Nintendo Switch Pro controller ($74.99) and carrying case ($24.99) on May 12. Only the case was available at the time of writing — pre-order it at Best Buy(Opens in a new tab) or GameStop(Opens in a new tab) while you still can.
