The February 2023 Nintendo Direct is officially over and, as expected, Nintendo used it to showcase and reveal more details about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Aside from the controversial price point, which it mistakenly leaked earlier, Nintendo also revealed a new trailer, a bunch of screenshots, as well as opened the pre-orders for the Breath of the Wild sequel and revealed a Collector's Edition of Tears of the Kingdom that will launch alongside the game on May 12.

Here's everything that's included in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Collector's Edition:
- 1 x Steelbook case
- 1 x Artbook with concept art
- 1 x Iconart steel poster
- 4 x pin badges
- 1 x physical version of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Tears of the Kingdom might be the last AAA exclusive for the Nintendo Switch, but it's shaping up to be well worth it. The highly anticipated sequel received its first trailer two years ago and was initially slated to come out last year. Nintendo later pushed its release date back to Spring 2023 before giving it an official title and its current release date. Outside of it going gold, it's all but guaranteed now that Tears of the Kingdom will be out on May 12.
We'll find out by then if the sequel, which initially started life as a DLC for Breath of the Wild, is GOTY material or not.
As for the Collector's Edition, it should be available for pre-order soon. Otherwise, Nintendo will have another issue to deal with if the Collector's Edition won't be available on May 12.
