Nintendo believes Zelda Tears of the Kingdom’s $70 price will be justified

Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser said the company hopes The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will justify its $70 price tag.

The company announced last month that the upcoming game costs $69.99, marking the first time it has charged more than $59.99 for a standard version of its digital Switch title.

In a recent interview, Nintendo’s US boss was asked how the platform holder made the decision to price Tears of the Kingdom at $70.

“We’re looking at what the game has to offer,” Bowser told The Associated Press. “I think fans will find it a very comprehensive and profound experience. The price reflects the kind of experience fans can expect from playing this particular game.

After the game’s price was announced, a Nintendo spokesperson suggested that $70 might not necessarily be the new standard for first-party Switch software, saying that the company determined the retail price to be based on a specific price tag. for its products “on a case-by-case basis”. “. “.

Bowser said of this: “It’s not a price we necessarily have on all of our titles. It’s actually a pretty common pricing model, whether here or in Europe. or other regions of the world where prices may vary depending on the game itself.

Sony starts charging $70 for first-party games when PS5 launches in 2020, while Microsoft starts charging $70 for first-party Xbox Series X/S games this year .

After many delays, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will finally be released on May 12.

In addition to the standard version, the Tears of the Kingdom Collector’s edition is priced at $129.99. It includes a physical version of the game, an art book, a steel bookcase, an Iconart steel poster, and a set of four pin badges.
