Nintendo joins Sony and Microsoft in making the jump to $70 games.
Following in the footsteps of Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo is venturing into the world of $70 games with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, according to the game’s eShop page.
Sony made the jump with the release of the PS5 in 2020, meaning PS5 exclusives like Demon’s Souls and Returnal cost that higher price. Microsoft said in December that its “new, built for next-gen, full-priced games” be more expensive moving forward as well, so if you want to buy games like Forza Motorsport, Redfall, and Starfield outright, you’re going to put aside a little more cash. And the era of the $70 game arguably arrived last fall, with third-party games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and The Callisto Protocol carrying that higher pricetag.
Nintendo released a new trailer for the game on Wednesday.
