Nintendo finally revealed and confirmed rumors that the long-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom would have a special OLED Nintendo Switch at the end of today’s 10-minute preview, which had series producer Eiji Aonuma showing off Link’s new building and crafting abilities.
In the video showcase, we learned that Link can now pass through ceilings with “Ascend” and use “Recall” to reach islands in the sky. My two new favorite skills feature sandbox elements: “Fuse” combines objects, allowing you to form new customized items and weapons, while “Ultrahand” enables you to modify your creations.
Tears of The Kingdom OLED Switch Edition
An OLED Switch will launch for $359.99 USD on April 28th, ahead of the actual release of Tears of the Kingdom. We’ll update you when pre-orders become available.

If you’re not keen on getting a new Switch, additional accessories such as a Switch Pro controller ($74.99 USD) and a carrying case ($24.99 USD) will be up for sale on launch day, May 12th.
