Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arrives on Switch this week

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on Nintendo Switch

The highly anticipated sequel to Breath of the Wild arrives on Nintendo Switch this week - along with 24 other games.

πŸ› Monday, May 8 β€” Sunday, May 14

Six years after Breath of the Wild, the Switch exclusive sequel is finally here, with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom arriving on the Nintendo Switch this Friday, May 12.

Of course, that's not the only game landing on the hybrid this week, as another roughly 25 games are also coming to Nintendo's console over the next seven days.

As ever, we've taken a look at all of the upcoming releases and have put together a list of all of the games on the immediate horizon. Below you'll find a list of all of the upcoming Nintendo Switch games, along with a short description of each, and a link to more information, including screenshots and trailers.

Without a shadow of a doubt, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the highlight this week. The highly anticipated, long-awaited sequel continues the Hyrule legend, and sees the return of Ganondorf. It's worth knowing that the full game has leaked online, so for those of you adverse to spoilers, it's probably best to keep a low profile online this week.

In addition to Zelda, I also like the look of Local News with Cliff Rockside and For a Vast Future on Switch this week.
