Zelda Tears of the Kingdom New Game Plus: Is There NG+?

There’s plenty to do in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but some players may want to experience it over again with a New Game Plus. There’s a lot to do in the kingdom of Hyrule, and players can easily get hundreds of hours of playtime out of a single playthrough. If you want to experience the main story all over again later, though, you can start all over again. Here’s everything to know about new game plus in Tears of the Kingdom.

Does Tears of the Kingdom Have New Game Plus?

Does Tears of the Kingdom have New Game Plus?

Unfortunately, Tears of the Kingdom does not feature a New Game Plus mode. While it would be great to use your existing equipment and upgrades right from the beginning of a Hyrule adventure, it seems like that’s not an option. At least, it isn’t an option at launch.

There is a possibility that the mode could be added in a post-launch update, though it isn’t a common practice for Nintendo. Other Nintendo games like Fire Emblem Engage also didn’t feature New Game Plus, and hasn’t added it in a post-launch update, so it’s tough to expect an addition of it this time around.

Luckily, though, a New Game Plus doesn’t lend itself too well to a game like Tears of the Kingdom anyways. Equipment that breaks easily wouldn’t last long, even if it’s carried over into a new save file. Even the best shield in TOTK would have trouble lasting very long. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to start out a new file with max energy for my weird Zonai contraptions, though.

That’s the unfortunate answer to TOTK‘s New Game Plus mystery. Want to solve more mysteries in Tears of the Kingdom? Check out our guide to The Heroines’ Secret Stelae Locations!
