The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Commercials, story recap video (Breath of the Wild)

In exactly three weeks, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (the highly-awaited sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath) will be released on Nintendo Switch. This is one of the biggest releases of the year for Nintendo (if not THE biggest), and the company is planning to go all out to promote it.

Today, Nintendo revealed several commercials for the game. Unfortunately, they feature little new footage, so if you’ve already watched the previous trailers (especially the third one), then those commercials will feel quite familiar!

First, here’s a commercial in English:

And here’s another commercial in English, from Nintendo of America this time and featuring some new footage:

Next, here’s a commercial focusing on the story:

The next commercial focuses on the gameplay, and more precisely the various actions Link can perform in the game:

The final commercial focuses on the massive world you will get to explore in the game:

And that’s not all! Nintendo has also shared a video for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s a story recap that presents the important moments of the story. It’s well worth a watch for anyone who wants a refresher ahead of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Needless to say, it’s highly recommended you avoid watching this video if you’re yet to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (or if you’re currently playing it), unless you’re fine with spoilers!

Here’s the video:

NB: right now, the video is only available in Japanese (with no subtitles). It’s not clear whether Nintendo will share an English version later down the line, but if there’s one, it will be added to this post as soon as it’s live!

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (Switch) comes out on May 12th worldwide.
