Gacha Exists in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

It looks like there will be a gacha mini-game in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. In an image that Nintendo shared on the The Legend of Zelda Twitter account, Link is standing in front of a gacha machine on top of a sky island. It’s unclear what purpose this gacha machine will serve.

Considering the game will cost $70 at launch, it is highly unlikely that there will be any real-life micro-transactions to spin the gacha. Link will likely need to use in-game items in order to play it. However, what kinds of items are available from the gacha machine are still unclear. The mini-map in the corner of the screen also shows Link’s position, which might give players an idea as to where they can access it in-game.

Previous information on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom focused on the gameplay that Link will be able to pull off in post-apocalyptic Hyrule. You’ll be able to use Fuse monster materials as weapons in combat, as well as synthesize them to his weapons. You’ll also be able to use portable pots to cook wherever and whenever you please. The gacha machine in Tears of the Kingdom might offer materials and ingredients for Link to utilize his wide repertoire of skills.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will come out on the Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.
