Nintendo lists Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom at $70

UPDATE: Now confirmed, and £60 in the UK.

UPDATE 11.30pm UK: Nintendo has now officially opened its own pre-orders for Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and confirmed its $70 price point. Here in the UK, it's £60.

We're still waiting to hear the price for Tears of the Kingdom's collector's edition, which includes an artbook, Steelbook case, poster and pin badges.

Tonight, Nintendo also revealed a new amiibo figure of Link that grants access to materials and weapons, as well as a special fabric for Link's paraglider. Tears of the Kingdom? Tears of my wallet, more like.

ORIGINAL STORY 11am UK: Nintendo has listed - then later hid - an official $69.99 price point for the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, ahead of tonight's Nintendo Direct broadcast.

Such a price would be a first for the company, though comes as numerous other video game publishers embrace the $70 price point as a new normal.

Typically, big budget Nintendo titles sell at $59.99, making this a potential $10 price increase.

Perhaps notably, GameStop, Best Buy and Amazon have now paused Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom pre-orders in the US (thanks, BenjiSales). These were previously set at the expected $59.99.

Eurogamer has contacted Nintendo UK to ask what the game will cost here.

In the meantime, UK fans are now sharing links to retailers which are still taking pre-orders, in the hope any placed before a potential price rise tonight may still be honoured.

As a reminder, tonight's Nintendo Direct will kick off at 10pm UK time, with a heavy focus on Switch games due to be released during the first half of 2023.

We're expecting to see plenty of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom then, along with a few other surprises. Join us for our live coverage later!
