“Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom” leaked on piracy sites

By Ninian Carter

May 3, 2023 - Days before its release, pirated copies of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – one of the most hotly anticipated video games in years – have surfaced online.

Physical copies of Nintendo’s hugely anticipated “The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom” video game have fallen into the hands of buyers days ahead of its May 12 release date.

The leak has now escalated to streams across Twitch, Discord and other similar sites, as early players share a look at the game.

PC Gamer magazine has also identified pirated copies of the game on multiple torrent sites, most likely ripped from the Switch cartridge and so playable on PC Switch emulators.

Nintendo’s copyright enforcement teams are going to have their work cut out for them as they try and stem the flow of illegal copies and streams.
