For anyone wondering if you can get mods for Tears of the Kingdom on Switch, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
With a release as hotly anticipated as Tears of the Kingdom, it’s not surprising that gamers want to know everything they can about the game to ensure they’re playing it the best way. Whether that’s looking for cheat codes or investing in the guide books, there’s just something about being shown a new map with new characters, and new quests that makes you want to know even more. It’s no wonder then, with a game that promotes creativity, that gamers are now trying to find out if you can get mods for Tears of the Kingdom on Switch.
Let’s get into it.
Can you get mods for Tears of the Kingdom on Switch?
In short, no. You can’t get mods on Switch. It’s a bit ironic given one of the main praise points in the many, many positive reviews we’ve seen flooding in for Tears of the Kingdom, is that Link can mod almost anything himself using his Ultrahand and Fuse ability. This game dynamic is being praised for the sense of freedom it creates in-game. However, while it may make you look at the world more creatively after playing, you won’t be able to mod the game on Switch like you can for PC games.
It is worth noting that many mods provide new skins for characters…which certain amiibo also have the capacity to do. So, all may not be lost if you’re goal is to get newly shaggy-haired Link into a fancy shirt.
We’re going to be keeping an eye on this release and will update the site regularly as new information comes in, so make sure to check back in periodically to stay up-to-date.
