The newest edition of the Legends of Zelda series is Legend of Zelda: Tears of Kingdom, or TOTK. Fans have loved this new addition to the already popular series. And this game has indeed lived up to all the hype. The new and improved mechanics of Legend of Zelda: Tears of Kingdom keep players engaged throughout with a myriad of side quests and activities. And all this popularity is making fans do some drastic stuff like stealing too.
Nintendo Switch exclusively features The Legend of Zelda series. The game has undergone intensive work by the devs. Furthermore, this series has received top ratings from critics, demonstrating its worth. The world of this game grants players a lot of freedom. Players can do custom buildings, create a base, and follow side quests endlessly in TOTK.
Nintendo put its all into making this series. Tears of the Kingdom met high expectations despite the current bad state of AAA releases in the video game industry. Nintendo took its time to release this game. They concluded the development and released the game a whole year later. They did this to eliminate bugs & crashes and to make the player experience smooth.
Fans stealing The Legend of Zelda copies from Amazon
This incident of stealing has taken place twice by now. The first incident took place a month before the official release of the game. The first person of a 21-year-old guy who landed a job at Amazon. As the company was all set for the big release, the new employee was nowhere to be found. When the supervisors called his home, the mother picked up the phone instead. She told them how he’s been playing games all day, the reason for not showing up for work. Upon investigating, they found out he was playing the Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom, which wasn’t even available to purchase. Later, they revealed that he had actually stolen a copy of the game from Amazon’s warehouse.
The employer made the employee pay in full for the game and terminated them on the spot. The second thief went further than just stealing a game copy. The 24-year ex-employee now also disappeared right before the game’s release. But instead of stealing the copy of the game to play, he also stole two Legend of Zelda merchandise, the gorgeous Tears of the Kingdom pro controller and Amiibos figurine. He planned to sell these items on third-party websites, but authorities caught him in the process. The authorities incarcerated the employee because he committed a crime with malicious intent, unlike the first incident.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been a major success for Nintendo. And also, this game is loved by fans all around. And we can see people taking some not-so-conventional measures to play the game. However, that is not the correct way, and gamers should choose the legal and appropriate route to show their love and passion for the game. This would help the developers and prove the worth of such a masterpiece too.
