As reported last week, the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has experienced an unfortunate leak. Now, various images and footage from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom have Leaked and are now circulating on social media. Previously, we shared news of the collector's edition being photographed by someone with early access. Now, the situation has escalated with actual in-game content being leaked.
This latest leak seems to have its roots in the 4chan message boards. Given the tangible evidence of in-game screenshots and videos, it's tough to dismiss this as a mere hoax. For obvious reasons, I will not be sharing the leaked videos/images in this article, but for those desperate to see them, it's not too hard with a simple Google search to locate them.
The leaked screenshots effectively confirm the leak's legitimacy, barring an extremely elaborate hoax. As a major 2023 release for the Nintendo Switch, fans have been eagerly anticipating the sequel to the 2017 hit, Breath of the Wild. Initially scheduled for a 2022 release, internal delays pushed the launch date to May 12, 2023.
In typical Nintendo fashion, the review embargo for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is expected to lift a day or two before the game's launch. According to sources, review copies have already been sent out, providing critics with sufficient time to evaluate the game thoroughly.
So, tread carefully to avoid spoilers in the coming days, as we continue to eagerly await the official release of this much-anticipated title.
