Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is reportedly getting a special OLED Switch model after images of the console leaked online.

Nintendo continues to push the OLED model for the Nintendo Switch as the first version of the mega-popular console.

In September, Nintendo launched Splatoon 3, along with a special version of the OLED console that was extra inked. In November, they also released a special Pokemon Scarlet & Violet version of the OLED.

Now it looks like the Japanese gaming giant wants to replicate that magic with a new version for the upcoming Legend of Zelda title.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom OLED switch leaks

A post on the Reddit page r/GamingLeaksandRumors went viral after sharing images of what appears to be the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Switch OLED box.

The box shows the Switch and dock, both of which have a white color base. The dock has a large gold Zelda crest with some swirl patterns on the right side.

The console itself has gold joycons, with a green pattern on the left and a white pattern on the right. The backplate for each joycon is solid white.

Of course, it has not yet been confirmed that these images are real. Nintendo has yet to DMCA or remove the images, so it’s very possible that these could be genuine.

We may not know for a while if the leaked Zelda OLED switch is real, as Tears of the Kingdom won’t launch until May 2023.

It should be noted that the console does not include the game, meaning it could launch before the actual game around March or April 2023.
