Plus a release date

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be one of the centerpieces of the Switch launch lineup, and Nintendo is going all out for it.

The March 3 release will feature three editions: A standard edition for US$59.99, a "Special Edition" for $99.99 that includes a carrying case, coin, a Calamity Ganon tapestry and a Sound Selection CD in addition to the game. The "Master Edition" includes all of the above plus a Master Sword of Resurrection figure for $129.99.

In addition to the two Link and the Guardian Amiibo figures announced at E3 2016, there will also be Amiibo for Zelda and the Bokoblin, while the Wolf Link previously bundled with 2016's Twilight Princess HD will receive a standalone release on February 3. The Guardian Amiibo MSRP will be $19.99, while the other Breath of the Wild figures will be $15.99.

The Breath of the Wild Amiibo are even more expensive than other Amiibo... Jebus, Nintendo...

What day gonna do about it?  Not Buy 'em?  Yeah, right...

You would think that they would at least include an Amiibo in that $100 package.

I'm guessing that the special editions are for NSwitch only, is that correct?

The limited edition for the Wii U is that it's actually getting a disc

FYI, pre-ordered the console @ Gamestop and they were out of pre-orders for both of the special editions of the game.

I mainly like it for that case. But its way too expensive for me.

StratosJanuary 13, 2017

I was going to splurge on the $99 one, but looks like I cannot get it! :P

The Special Edition has popped back up for preorder a few times at various stores so don't lose hope if you're still trying to be a Master.

StratosJanuary 14, 2017

It was available on Best Buy, but now I've decided against it. I really wanted to Master Sword statue and have also talked myself out of buying a game for such a high price. Extras aren't worth it for me.
