While Nintendo has not provided any details on whether there will be interviews with the developers, the Treehouse events have historically included such interviews. The event will lead up to the midnight launch of Tears of the Kingdom at the Nintendo NYC store.
Tears of the Kingdom is highly anticipated, and expectations are high for both its quality and commercial success. Its predecessor, Breath of the Wild, was a critical success and sold over 29 million units. The digital version of the game will be available for play on May 11 at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET on May 12 for those who purchase it from the eShop.
