A new The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch OLED is leaking online ahead of its supposed 2023 release.
Fans that were expecting a new special edition Nintendo Switch OLED to drop alongside The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom may have just had their wishes granted.
With many new releases, such as the recent Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, Nintendo opts to release a new limited-edition console to celebrate the launch.
These special Switch consoles often come with exclusive Joy-Cons, as well as a never-seen-before dock, themed after the game in question. Even the back of the Nintendos Switch itself tends to get in on the fun, with a fresh design helping your device stand out.
Now, it seems that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be the latest game to come alongside a special limited-edition Nintendo Switch system.
The Legend of Zelda Switch OLED Leaked Images
New images, surfacing from user Kysen on the Famiiboard forum, appear to show a Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom edition Nintendo Switch console.
The images show that the upcoming system comes with an exclusive Triforce-themed dock, with gold and white Joy-Cons to match the dock’s design.
With multiple pictures of the console and its art on show, this certainly looks to be a real leak. However, we can’t discount that the Legend of Zelda: TOTK Switch OLED images could be an intricate fake.
Until Nintendo starts taking down the images, or the company confirms anything itself, take this with a hefty pinch of salt.

Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Switch OLED Release Date
The limited-edition Nintendo Switch system will most likely release towards the end of April, or very early May. Judging by past releases, it is likely to drop significantly before The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s May 12 release date.
After all the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Switch OLED released on November 4, 14 days prior to the actual launch of Gen 9 itself.
Not only that, but the Splatoon 3 Switch OLED dropped on August 26, 13 days before the release date of Splatoon 3.
From what we can see of the box itself, there is no mention of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom coming installed on the Switch OLED by default. It seems that Nintendo is sticking to its guns and continuing to require that gamers purchase the title separately.
