Special Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch and Accessories Revealed

Legend of Zelda fans have a new special edition Nintendo Switch OLED, Pro Controller, and carrying case to look forward to this Spring!

On the heels of Eiji Aonuma’s gameplay presentation for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo revealed some Switch goodies for fans to pick up. While these have previously leaked in the past, it’s always nice to have some official confirmation and details.

A special Tears of the Kingdom themed Nintendo Switch OLED is launching on April 28th for $359.99 (and won’t include the game):

The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model system features a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, a wide adjustable stand, a dock with a wired LAN port (LAN cable sold separately), 64 GB of internal storage, a portion of which is reserved for use by the system, and enhanced audio in handheld and tabletop mode. The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model system can be played in three modes: TV mode, played on a TV while the system is docked; handheld mode, when the Joy-Con controllers are attached for portable play; and tabletop mode for on-the-go multiplayer gaming sessions. These versatile features are well-suited for the places your epic adventures may take you in-game or in life.

If that’s not enough for you, or you want something a bit cheaper to show your Zelda franchise love, a new themed Pro Controller and carrying case are launching as well. These will hit on May 12th, the same day as the game:

Plus, two accessories – a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (MSRP $74.99) and a Nintendo Switch carrying case (MSRP $24.99), both with designs from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – will release separately on May 12, the day the game launches.


The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom game, the new hardware and the two themed accessories are all now available for pre-order. Please check with your local retailer for further details.
