Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Leaks and Spoilers Are Hitting the Internet
People received copies of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom early, so players must look out for potential leaks and spoilers.
People have acquired The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom early, so players should avoid potential leaks and spoilers. After the critical success of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 2017, Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 during E3 2019, which eventually became The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Ever since then, fans have waited for the game to release, which is currently set for May 12, 2023.
Nintendo revealed multiple trailers and directs to share more information with players, including Tears of the Kingdom‘s new gameplay mechanics. However, while Nintendo unveiled more about the game, it held off on showing another trailer until 2022. The company has published more videos since that time, giving fans plenty of chances to discuss new details and theorize about what they can expect from the game.
Even though Nintendo has only shown off small portions of the game, some people have been able to play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom early and posted details online. From gameplay spoilers to story leaks, players can run into the information online, learning about the game two weeks before it becomes officially available.
Even though some fans may not mind the spoilers, others may want to stay away from them until the expected digital release time for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. While fans can easily search for the details if they want, others may run into them on accident as they browse the internet or use their favorite social media channels.
Nintendo usually combats these situations by combing the internet and looking for signs of leaked photos or videos, and it’ll then take steps to get rid of the posts and information to protect its IP. However, even if Nintendo goes through the internet and looks for such content, it can’t stop everything.
Those planning to play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in the future may want to stay away from the internet for a while, or remain careful with their searches. Fans may want to discuss connections between Tears of the Kingdom and Breath of the Wild or other interesting theories, though they should be careful as they browse forums. People can still have fun talking about these things, but they should be aware that there are leaks online so that they can avoid spoilers before playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom releases as a Nintendo Switch exclusive on May 12, 2023.
