Video game enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating one of the biggest video game launches of the year – ‘The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’. In fact, some are willing to go to great lengths to get their hands on the game, including waiting in line for days on end.
Who is “Captain Nintendo Dude”?
Meet Alex “Captain Nintendo Dude” Pekala. He’s a YouTube personality who’s already waiting in line outside the Nintendo Store in New York City to purchase The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Pekala began his camping-out journey at 10 AM ET on Tuesday, May 9. That’s roughly 72 hours before he can pick up the game at the store.
Others waiting in line for Tears of the Kingdom
Pekala isn’t the only superfan waiting in line already. According to his latest vlog, two men from Canada have already been waiting for five days as of May 9. This means they will ultimately be camping out for over a week to pick up Tears of the Kingdom.
Not Necessary to Camp Out
It’s important to note that it’s not necessary for fans to camp out like Pekala and the two Canadians. The game will also be available online. Tears of the Kingdom will go live digitally at 9 PM PT on May 11 and 12 AM ET on May 12. Fans can also start pre-loading the game already, ensuring they can start playing as soon as it becomes available.
