Millions of fans have been waiting to get their hands on a Breath of the Wild sequel for years, so it wouldn’t be a shock to anyone if this game sold out within the first week of its release. If you want to get down on some Tears of the Kingdom sooner rather than later, then you may want to consider pre-ordering the game while you still have the chance. Keep reading to find out how to pre-order Zelda Tears of the Kingdom!

How to Pre-Order Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Considering how insanely popular Breath of the Wild was, we can reasonably expect Tears of the Kingdom to sell out pretty fast. If you want to get your hands on this game anytime before 2024, then you’ll definitely want to consider pre-ordering it as soon as possible. Thankfully, the developers of Tears of the Kingdom apparently had the same idea, because they made pre-ordering this game incredibly easy! You can pre-order this game from the comforts of your own home, all you need is an internet connection.

To pre-order Zelda Tears of the Kingdom straight from the source, you’ll need to head to Nintendo’s website and go to the store page for Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. If you’re on your Nintendo Switch, you can just go to your e-shop and navigate to the Tears of the Kingdom store page from there.

Once you’re on the Tears of the Kingdom store page, you should see a big red button that says “Pre-Order”. All you need to do then is press the button (make sure you’re signed into your Nintendo account) and pay for the game. That’s it! There’s no going back once you’ve pre-ordered it, so make sure your bank account can handle it before you go pressing the button!

The game retails for $69.99, which may seem like a pretty steep price at first, but it’s not actually all that terrible considering what it is. People have been waiting for this sequel for years, and if it’s going to be anything like Breath of the Wild, then it’ll be more than worth the price.
