The wait is over! This week’s eShop roundup finally brings us the long-awaited sequel to 2017’s Breath of the Wild. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hits the Switch on May 12.

Wait, you want more? Well, thankfully the eShop is still bursting at the seams with content and specials. For starters, you can now preorder the 2D action platformer Convergence ahead of its May 23 release.

There’s also a nifty sweepstakes competition to coincide with the release of Tears of the Kingdom. This one looks to only be available in North America, but there are some special-looking prozes up for grabs, so its worth checking out.

Not to mention the long list of other new titles and discounts to tempt your digital wallet this week. Warner Bros. and Ubisoft both have some decent sales on the eShop right now, so it’s worth scoping it out and potentially grabbing a great deal.
