Shout from the rooftops and get the champagne because The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom is finally here.

It's been six years since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild blew gamers minds with a brand-spanking new Hyrule played via a then-new engine that made the graphics just look oh-so schmick.

You'd think it'd be hard to top a game that was called 'a masterclass in open-world design' and a 'watershed game that reinvents a 30-year-old franchise', as per IGN.

Yet here we are, six years on, and history is repeating itself in the best way possible.

But don't take out word for it; near-perfect reviews have been coming in hot and when we say near-perfect, we aren't kidding.

Out 39 reviews from the best gaming sites, magazines, and media titans, the latest Zelda scored a perfect 10/10 in 31 of those reviews.

Seven of those non-perfect scores were ratings of 9/10 or higher, and there was one, lone eight out of 10.

Now that's impressive.

Gaming review aggregator Metacritic offered up a score of 96/100 from a total of 87 professional reviewers and critics, which is pretty damn impressive.

The game is so good that one critic didn't have a vocabulary large or succinct enough to explain how they truly felt.

But Atomix tried anyway: "It makes my heart happy to tell you that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one of the best video games of all time, just as Breath of the Wild was in 2017 and will continue to be."

Nintendo Insider added: "The greatest legend that Nintendo has ever told, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a shining beacon of wondrous brilliance in an enviably storied franchise."

Gameblog couldn't get enough of it: "The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is indeed the masterclass we were waiting for. A game of incredible generosity that buries, once again, all the competition."

We could go on, but you really should play it for yourself as there is a whole new world of discovery, exploration and adventure waiting to be enjoyed.

Nintendo really has outdone themselves with this epic new adventure that doubles down on and deepens everything that made 2017's Game Of The Year such a success.

Whether you’re leaping from a jet-powered glider onto the back of an ancient dragon or accidentally riding your go-kart off the edge of a cliff because you strapped too many fans to it, Tears Of The Kingdom effortlessly dances between the epic and the ridiculous.

How they have done it is beyond us, but Nintendo has followed up a masterpiece with something bigger, better, and smarter.

We sort of feel feel bad now for every other video game that has to be released this year.

The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom dropped on May 12.

It is available to play on Nintendo Switch.
