The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been leaked online and, surprisingly enough, it can already be played on PC via Nintendo Switch emulators.
From the looks of it, the only Nintendo Switch emulator that can currently run this new Zelda game is Ryujinx. I couldn’t find any video for yuzu or CEMU. However, and since the ROM for Tears of the Kingdom is out in the wild, we expect these emulators to be able to run the game really soon.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom officially releases on May 12th. So, PC gamers can already play it one week prior to its official release.
Since we don’t condone piracy, we won’t allow any direct links to the ROM. Do note that we may also ban you if you keep sharing links to the ROM.
From the looks of it, an Intel i5 11600K with an NVIDIA RTX3090 can run the game’s starting area with 30fps. However, once you get to the skies, there are major stutters. So yeah, don’t expect a smooth gaming experience.
Still, the fact that a Nintendo Switch emulator can already run this new, unreleased, triple-A game is monumental. And the good news is that things will only get better from here.
