Now, I’m not a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda franchise, but I am surrounded by hardcore friends dying to know exactly when they’ll be able to play the next game in its series: Tears of the Kingdom. You’d think, in this digital age of ours, that they’d be talking about when they can start downloading it, but no, they instead ask me, all the time, if Gamestop will be having a midnight release. I was shocked to learn that there are indeed people out there willing to line up in front of Gamestop like it’s a 2008 World of Warcraft expansion release. If you too are wondering about this, dearest reader, we do have an answer for you. Here’s all that you need to know.

Will Gamestop have a midnight release for Tears of the Kingdom?

To be frank, the answer is yes. Gamestop will be having a midnight release for Tears of the Kingdom, though we recommend calling your local store to be certain it is available right at midnight. Having been to my share of midnight releases, it is just good practice to ensure this, so you aren’t wasting your time. The last thing you want is to be waiting in a huge line for one of gaming’s most famous franchises, only to get nothing once you get through the door. Trust me, I know.

As far as details go on the midnight release itself, the information is a bit vague. The only concrete confirmation we have is that the midnight release will be happening. Again, don’t expect every single Gamestop store to be following suit with this. Call ahead first and make sure for your own sake.

What is Tears of the Kingdom Official Release Date?

The latest game in the Legend of Zelda franchise will be released exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on May 11.
