Nintendo Confirms Tears Of The Kingdom Is Its Most Expensive Game Yet
As the follow-up to “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” one of the best open-world games ever made, “Tears of the Kingdom” has an unfathomable amount of hype, and it’s set to be among the biggest launches in Nintendo Switch’s history. The demand for the title is also reflected in its steep price point; however, there are cost-cutting options for players.
“Tears of the Kingdom” is going for $69.99, making it the first Switch game to be this expensive. Some have argued that $70 for the game is unjustified, considering the technical limitations of the Switch. However, Nintendo said this will not set a new precedent, stating to Game Informer, “We determine the suggested retail price for any Nintendo product on a case-by-case basis.”
Thankfully, “Tears of the Kingdom” is voucher-eligible, meaning that players can spend $100 on a Nintendo Switch Game Voucher and claim two Nintendo-published games on the platform. This essentially grants players access to “Tears of the Kingdom” for $50 while also getting another game for the same price.
