The highly anticipated sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is just around the corner, and Nintendo is upping the ante with a brand new themed Nintendo Switch OLED model, releasing alongside the game on May 12th.
Not only does the sleek new Switch feature a vibrant 7-inch OLED screen, enhanced audio, and a wider adjustable stand, but it also comes with a special design from the upcoming game, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. And let’s not forget the Hylian Crest, a staple of the Zelda series, gracing the front of the dock. Talk about style and functionality!
If you really want to show off your Zelda love, Nintendo has also announced a special edition Pro Controller and carrying case, both with designs inspired by the game. And if you’re worried about running out of space, the OLED model has 64 GB of internal storage (though some of it is reserved for the system’s use).
Of course, it’s not all about the hardware. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom promises to be an epic adventure across the land and skies of Hyrule, with players forging their own path through the sprawling landscapes and mysterious islands floating above. And with new abilities for our hero Link to wield, players will need to use their imaginations to harness the power and defeat the malevolent forces threatening the kingdom.
Series producer Eiji Aonuma gave fans a taste of what’s to come in a new gameplay video, which you can check out on YouTube. Whether you’re playing on the TV, in handheld mode, or tabletop mode, the versatile features of the OLED model will ensure your epic adventures can be enjoyed anywhere.
So get ready to embark on a journey like no other with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and the sleek new Nintendo Switch OLED model. And hey, if you need a break from saving Hyrule, you can always show off your new hardware and accessories to all your jealous friends.
