New Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Advert Reminds You That You’re Never Too Old For Video Games

With just a few days left to go before the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo Australia has released a new advert for the game that is aimed at a very specific demographic: middle-aged fans. If you happen to fit that age bracket, be prepared to really feel your age but do pay attention to this brief reminder that you’re never too old to enjoy video games. Especially when the game allows you to bonk a Bokoblin on the head with a big rock tied to a stick.

There’s a bittersweet truth to the advert above, as while middle-aged gamers might have the real buying power when it comes to video games, the responsibilities of life generally don’t give the working class too much time to sink into a new video game. But with the trailer above, it’s a nice reminder that video games can inject a sense of adventure and color into even the most mundane of daily activities, like riding a bus.

For a more bombastic sizzle reel of what to expect from Tears of the Kingdom, you can check out this trailer that goes all in on cinematic action and rousing orchestral sounds. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launches on May 11 for Nintendo Switch, and to see when you can start playing it exactly in case you’re going the digital download route, you can check out this guide on when the game will unlock.

Preloading is also available now for those who preordered the game digitally, and clocks in at an easy 16GB download. Some copies of the game have begun circulating in the wild, so if you’re looking to avoid any spoilers, now is a good time to start muting keywords. And avoid having former Nintendo boss Reggie Fils-Aime is hunt you down.
