The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Might be The Switch’s Last Big Game

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom could be the last significant release on the Nintendo Switch. According to a couple of new reports, Nintendo might begin talks about new hardware in 2024, meaning Tears of the Kingdom will be the last major release for the current Switch hardware (excluding smaller releases).

The report comes from Video Games Chronicle’s Andy Robinson who claims that Nintendo will begin talking about new hardware in 2024. This means that Tears of the Kingdom, the anticipated follow-up to 2017’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, could be the last big title released for the current Switch hardware which currently encompasses the original model, the Switch Lite and Switch OLED.

“From what I’m hearing I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo starts talking about new hardware by 2024,” said Robinson in a recent tweet. “I’m not convinced another huge first-party game other than Zelda is left on Switch (usual Nintendo prediction caveats apply…).”

Christopher Dring from weighed in on the rumour, stating, “I have heard that after Zelda, Nintendo doesn’t have a significant game for quite some time.”

Speculation has run rampant over the past couple of days about what Nintendo could be planning, though the reports seem to spell it out. Tears of the Kingdom will cap off the current first-party Switch releases just as Breath of the Wild kicked it off and it seems like Nintendo will shift its priorities to newer hardware by 2024. It’s possible that this hardware – rumoured to be a Switch “Pro” model or a new console entirely – could even be released next year. Take all of this with a grain of salt until Nintendo officially confirms it.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the official sequel to Breath of the Wild and it will transport players to both the land and skies in new, skybound locations and areas. It’s currently planned to launch on 12 May 2023 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
