Eiji Aonuma, longtime producer of the Zelda series, gave us our first real look at The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom along with the announcement that a gorgeous white, gold, and green, Zelda-ified Nintendo Switch OLED console is on the way for $359.99. Needless to say, this is likely to be a difficult console to get your hands on, but your first chance is happening soon – possibly as early as today, March 28th. Pre-orders are expected to go live, and when they do you'll find the links right here, so stay tuned (UPDATING – now live on Amazon). 

Just keep in mind that the console does not include a copy of the game itself. You'll need to pre-order the game separately via the eShop or at retailers like Amazon priced at $69.99 for the base game. Also note that Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom amiibo went live today at the following retailers: 

In addition to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Nintendo Switch OLED Model, Nintendo is also releasing a matching Pro Controller and Nintendo Switch carrying case. Pre-orders for those items weren't available at the time of writing, but stay tuned for updates. They could also drop today. UPDATE: Pre-orders for the controller and case are going live.
