There is barely a week left to enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The long awaited sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild comes out almost 6 years after the game, a time that for fans has felt like an eternity. With so many eager to get their hands on it, it’s only natural to try to get as close to the game as possible, something really difficult these days: the game is already leaked on the internet… with all that that entails.
Only a week and a half ago we learned that some players already had Tears of the Kingdom legally, i.e. by buying their copy in shops that had, of course, skipped the embargo on selling it. However, the most important thing happened this past weekend, when a copy of the game was uploaded to the Internet.
Due to this fact, there are already many players downloading the said copy and running it on their “modified” Nintendo Switch, which in turn leads to something simple: the internet is already full of spoilers. Players are uploading everything from videos to screenshots to the different platforms. Unsurprisingly, we here at Softonic are not sharing any of them, although it’s fair to say that the different websites are getting very serious about this issue.
For example, YouTube is deleting all videos uploaded about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Obviously, we are referring to videos with spoilers or pure gameplay of the game, all taken down thanks to copyright claims by Nintendo. It’s similar with Twitch as well. The streaming platform doesn’t allow any broadcast with Link’s adventure as the main character. As soon as a live stream is plugged in, the broadcast is cut off due, of course, to the relevant complaints.
We recommend that if you’re looking forward to the game, don’t even think about deliberately searching for anything. In fact, we would invite you to try to avoid social media and forums for at least the next few days.
