Ha...thats right..you arent me.and for a person who doesnt care about resale value...do you realize your chatting on a trade in deal.....re sale
yeah ok....there a were better deals.....where are the better deals for people who want mariokart and have zelda to trade then....resale value is important....if i lose £10 when trading a game then it doesnt matter how much i pais does it

If people weren't so willing to pay more for games just because they're on a Nintendo system, then you would see better deals.
As for resale, I'm not you. It doesn't matter to me. I care about the price of a new game. I am not willing to pay more for a game just because it's associated with Nintendo.
I lost £30 in 2 years on nintendo console wii u with mario kart...dont know why or care why nintendo hold their value but its made a difference to me a few times

[quote=MarkoDeeJay] Hotukdeals users logic: "oh, it's a cold post, so it must be true! Let's vote it cold as well for no reason at all".
You're not telepathic dude. I voted cold because even £40 isn't remotely noteworthy for a standard edition of a game on another platform, so I don't regard it as noteworthy for the Switch. Nintendo aren't some magical brand that I am willing to give more money to for a product.
This isn't the standard edition though is it, it contains all the DLC from the original plus the new battle modes, new battle mode arenas and some new characters.
There's no version for the Switch that doesn't include the DLC, therefore it is the standard version.
the actual quote was I voted cold because even £40 isn't remotely noteworthy for a standard edition of a game on another platform implying the Switch version was the same as the standard version from the Wii U
I didn't say 'standard edition of this game', I was talking about any game on any platform.
Since you're talking about extra content from an older version though: There were TLOU Remastered pre-order deals for around £30. This one for £35 went cold.
I wouldn't vote hot on that game for £40, and I won't vote hot on this game for £40.
That last of us deal was 3 months after release and why it was so cold...this hasnt been released and mario kart will hold its resale value for lot longer than tlou.
3 months after release, wat? I don't know where you're getting that from, the official release date was 30/7/2014 in Europe. This was a pre-order.
'I've used The Game Collection a number of times and they have been excellent with pre orders, usually delivering the day before release.'
It was cold because there were other deals around the same time where it could be gotten for ~£30. Here's one for £29.97.
I don't care if Mario Kart will hold its resale value (partly due to people willing to pay more just for the Nintendo brand). The Switch does not exist in a vacuum.
£40 is not a good deal for a new PS4/XB1 game and £40 is not a good deal for a new Switch game.[/....yeah ok....there a were better deals.....where are the better deals for people who want mariokart and have zelda to trade then....resale value is important....if i lose £10 when trading a game then it doesnt matter how much i pais does it

I'm going to wait and see what the DLC offers, but we don't know how substantial (or unsubstantial!) the DLC is to call it grossly overpriced. Pretty similar to Bloodborne and other DLC (although dlc and download prices have got silly this gen).

You've got to have a pretty good incentive to preorder an unknown digital product - it's not going to go out of stock, and you've got little to no recourse to refunds.

Only time I've done that was MK8 and we knew how many tracks we were getting.

same price @ cdkeys.com and can also get 5% off


The cdkeys can be a better deal for the switch, but they do Not sell the wii u version of the pass.
Jasamo
Hmm good price, will probably get this anyway, not sure if I should wait... Is the initial treasure chests and clothing worth it?
No. The game revolves a lot around you changing your clothes to suit the enviroment or current activity so you will wear the tshirt for a couple of hours then stick it in your bag and forget about it.

The next 2 updates should be great but this one is meh.

Great console, great game, great price 8)
I disagree on price. But that's only because I want it for around £200 :{
Nintendo Switch costs about £207 to manufacture and Nintendo said that they won't sell it at loss so think about it.
that can't be true re:cost to manufacture, otherwise Nintendo would be making next to nothing once you consider retailer mark ups, I imagine they are selling them to retailers at around the £200 mark max and it probably costing them £100-£150 - also factor in that in the U.S it costs £240 ($300) and there is no way it could be £208 manufacture cost
You imagine Nintendo is selling to retailers at £200? That's a pretty wild imagination and is quite unrealistic. Your estimated cost is half what a reputable site is saying and you know it's a pretty well known fact across the gaming industry that retailers make very little money on game consoles right? The money comes from accessories and software.
it's based on how I know UK retailers mark up - the grocers wouldn't take it for less than £80 margin on £280, hell it would be a tough sell to get them to take it even at that price, obviously different retailers will be on different discounts with Nintendo but for them to get the distribution they do on the switch there is no way they will buying it for more than that, dedicated game websites might make little margin but grocers (and even HMV now) won't stock stuff that doesn't make them a certain margin

How is this even a bundle?! The console itself is worth £280 plus £40 for zelda and you'd be paying the same price even if you got them separately.
If it was £300 that'd make sense but this isn't even a bundle. *~*
The discount only appears if you add both console and game to the basket, so I guess it is a disguised bundle of sorts.

Deal still works, used it 5 minutes ago. You HAVE to order through Amazon now on mobile. You HAVE to use a London address. You need to remove tip by typing in 0.00 and it's £37.99 delivered! Cheapest online price for this game.
Glad somebody found it useful! It was destined to go arctic being a Prime Now deal, but knowing somebody saved some money out of it makes it worthwhile posting! Cheers.
Thanks for this tip! It worked perfectly for me, I just ordered the wii u version for £37.99! So at least you'll know somebody got some use out of it.

Voted hot but should be normal price. Shame about Switch Tax.


Why 'should' it be that price?

Prime Now offers often get sour grapes votes, so I've voted hot to try and counter them. :)

Given that the Switch version of Zelda is a half-baked port of the Wii U game, I'm going to wait for the definitive edition when Nintendo decides to re-release the game on PS4 and XBox in order to enable it to actually run at a semi-respectable frame-rate. In the meantime however, I've always got my Wii U original...

This is honestly the best game I've ever played. Absolutely love it. I'm quite nostalgic though and playing this made me feel like i used to when first playing games as a kid. I have horizon zero dawn for ps4 (I've only put in about 8 hours so far on that) but from what I've played it doesn't even come close to Zelda and horizon is amazing. If you haven't got it then buy it, either for Wii u or switch.

OOS, now some scumbag is selling NFC chips for £22 delivered.
Where?
On Amazon, check buying options on the Guardian Amiibo, for example. He's marked it at £14 to make it seem "the cheapest" and then whacked an £8 shipping cost on. When you read his description, he's selling NFC stickers - not the figure. I've already reported him to Amazon, because he's doing it for multiple Amiibo and it's a) "illegal" and b) misleading!

The credit account is scary, don't open one just for the sake of £20.
does it really matter if you're paying in fill with paypal though?
I can understand why people don't want unnecessary credit searches on their credit report. It may make it look like you're trying to get credit when all you're doing is buying a game

Exactly and if someone gets into your account they can wreck your credit rating and finances going on a spending spree on an account you don't check because you only used it to buy one game.

Does the Very credit account opening affect your credit score? Wouldn't be worth the £20 if that's the case.
yes, opening or using credit increases your credit score so win win in this case (if it wasn't now oos)

Opening too many within 12 months has a negative impact however, so if you've opened a new bank account/credit card it might be a bad idea.

So how would someone describe the main type of game play genre of this.


Massive open world, lock on combat controls, with a slight dark souls difficulty.
The game points you in 4 directions and tells you to work it out.

It's worth playing, but I personally didn't find it all that after 22 hours on it. But definitely a title to see for yourself.

Complete bargain, I have spent £1000's on games in the last 4 years and nothing has come close to the experience that this Zelda has offered. This is the first game in years I am actually still enjoying after spending 50+ hours of exploring the world.

It never gets tedious or repetitive and even after spending so much time playing I am still uncovering new areas, interesting secrets and the shrines are great fun.
When I picked up my Switch Smyths we're offering Zelda for £40. Lovely.

Er, you're alright mate. I think I'll just leave you to keep arguing with yourself.

What an odd reply.

As opposed to....
"I suppose your stance is admirable, but Nintendo really don't care if you buy it now or later - you still buy it at some point. They've already made their money from the retailer that sold it to you.

You're only hurting yourself really. Besides, you're likely wasting cash in other areas which negates what you're trying to save here - and you're also adding a wait time to your gameplay. Sure, you can play one of your 600 other games - but they aren't this one.

TLDR: Nintendo don't care about your aversion to DLC. Ultimately, it's just you losing out."


lol

But really if you want to tell me i am wrong in my views then take it to PM's, no point derailing this topic any further, thanks. ;)

Unfortunatly for Nintendo i have one simple rule in gaming, if a game comes with a season pass, DLC, microtransactions, i don't touch it until i can get the whole thing in either a GOTY or on massive sale, i don't support and never will, paying for a game in bits, but that has never stopped me playing said games, it just means i wait and get them for a fraction of the price at some point later down the line.
But i will enjoy it at some point in the future when the new redesigned Switch is launched with a BOTW deluxe console bundle for a fraction of what they are asking at present.

Collected mine today and all is good. Packaging wasn't great but all undamaged.
i got mine today from this deal, well packaged and working great. i was lucky as the email came through i ordered straight away.
My order was confirmed 12:48 so yours was before me but I did the premium delivery. So stock must of been very low.
They're telling me on twitter that there was no stock, although I do not believe that considering how early I ordered.
Sorry to hear others didn't get it. That's why I did premium delivery as it adds the extra chance to fulfil. However a certain person missed the delivery today so have to collect it tomorrow now..

GOTY or not, £48 for a standard edition of a game is not a good deal.
It's RRP in retailers like Game is £59.99, considering you're saving £12 seems like a deal to me.
......
I really don't get this reasoning. That is not my problem. Nintendo are nothing special. They make videogames like everyone else. I'm not willing to pay extra for something just because it's attached to a supposedly premium brand. £48 is too expensive for a standard edition, whether it's from Sony, MS or Nintendo.
I'm just posting this up as it was cheaper than the current cheapest listing that was on this site beforehand. I don't think it's unreasonable to post it.

Being cheaper than the current cheapest listing also wouldn't automatically make it a good deal though. £200 for a bag of potatoes is not a good deal. £100, even though it is half the price, is still not a good deal.

I have no objection to you posting it, but I'm still going to vote cold on any deal for a standard edition of a game that's priced at £48. This is nothing personal BTW, I just have the same standard for Nintendo as the others.

The game itself is sold out nearly everywhere at this point

This isn't HotUKStockAlerts, there are already sites for that (though a separate section on HUKD might be handy, rather than cluttering up the deals section with these stock alerts).

which tells you that most people don't think it's a rip off and I'm sure there's at least one person who found this post helpful.

Did most people pay £60 for it? How do you know they didn't think it was a ripoff? A person could begrudgingly buy something because they couldn't find it anywhere else and still think the price was a ripoff.

As for the last part you quoted, thats your opinion that Nintendo are nothing special but they've sold more console units than any other manufacturer so the stats would disagree.

Nintendo have been in the game for far longer than Sony or MS, and also sell handhelds which are cheaper than home consoles, so it's not surprising that they've sold more. That doesn't mean that they're special, or that people should have to pay more for their products.

20% off of a brand new game isn't a terrible deal


I wouldn't say 'terrible', but £48 is a bad deal for a standard edition of a game. New PS4/XB1 games typically get heat for around the £40 price. There is absolutely no reason why Nintendo games should be treated any differently.

it's not my problem you disagree with that.

I didn't say it was. I'm simply giving my opinion on why this is not a good deal. -184 suggests I'm not alone in this opinion either.

Why are you even looking at Nintendo products on here if that's your attitude anyway?

I didn't say I don't like Nintendo products. I want them to succeed as much as anyone, as the more competition there is, the better. I'm probably going to buy the Switch eventually if it drops in price and enough good games are released. I have zero brand loyalty though. A bad price is a bad price, regardless of the company.

If you're a Nintendo consumer then you know what to expect in terms of pricing for software.

I am not one to just sit back and accept anything that a company throws at me :). If a deal is posted for BotW for a bit less than £40, then I will vote it hot.

Something being cheaper than a ripoff RRP does not automatically make it a good deal.

Remember xbox one and ps4 games were more than £39.99 when they first came out

And they wouldn't have been good deals above £40 either.

The Switch is a new console, its also Nintendo, if you look at any Nintendo first party game, they retain their value for years. Nintendo games have almost always been more expensive to begin with.

I'd just go to Smyth's toys as it's £5 more, and most shops I've visited in store have it for the Wii U, and to be honest it's worth every penny.
This is the best Zelda game since ocarina of time, went I opened it up on Christmas morning over 17 years ago.
Has anyone else got it where you go to press Buy and it just goes to a white page? Not the greatest website.

Edited By: npavey on Mar 08, 2017 09:22
good price - don't know what the website is like though - zelda on the wii u was pretty scarce in town today - only place with lots of stock were game but that's because it's being sold at RRP there atm - there was one copy in grainger games and sold out everywhere else

If you want the game I wouldn't wait forever for a cheaper price as I doubt it'll be much cheaper than this for a good while on the back of such great reviews (and it being a zelda game and it because nintendo will more than likely be wanting to push the switch version over the wii u).
I ordered from them a week before it came out at £39.99, didn't get a despatch email but the game turned up on Saturday, pretty good I think.

There's a 5-10 day wait on this currently, just a heads up for those who want it asap.

These guys are awful.
The website is trash and buggy as anything.
I preordered this from them the other week for 39.99 - come friday night it was still awaiting dispatch.
Seriously, don't bother...


These guys are great. One bad experience doesn't make them awful. I've used their rental service for about 3 years now and have always had games on release.

It's taking too long, I'm going to cancel my order. Not impressed with Studio.
Could you cancel? I can't cancel mine because I owe them £40.98!
I asked them to cancel my order and refund the balance, they said they will try but they cannot guarantee it.
They didn't cancel it, I don't fully understand why though. I suspect it has something to do with them placing the order already with the manufacturer they are 'direct' dispatching from.
And why are they still saying "stock available" and "10 days of delivery" when it's not true?. And what if our order is cancelled in a month because they couldn't get more stock? They are selling smoke

I agree, shady business practise or totally incompetent staff in charge of their stock count? Who knows.

Samsung as well :) Using game mode
Oh... I have a 49 inch Sony 4K TV and it looks washed out when I use Game mode. So far the best picture quality has been on Animation mode but that too isn't great.

I'm sure after a while people will post their best settings for your tv and the switch on a forum or somewhere on the net.

Mine looked washed out at first, then I remembered to put game mode on and it was so much better :)

Its very good, going to try it on the switch in a bit. Ive not played a Nintendo in 20 years apart from portables and I have to say nobody does it like Nintendo. Its a refreshing change from Xbox/PS. On the Wii U the game can screen tear from time to time, but if your playing Nintendo its not for the super 4k graphics.

The game is frickin awesome. It does look bad to start with, the resolution, lack of AA and there's definitely framerate drops, but once you get a few hours in you stop noticing all that and start noticing how great (and huge) the world and story is, how much you can do in the game and just how high quality everything is.
Still though you can't help wish it was on a more powerful system, and I don't mean the Switch. On PC or PS4 Pro the game would look (and run) incredible.
SPot on. Im mainly a PC gamer and picked up a Wii U about 2 years ago for the odd game of mario kart etc. (the games that dont play well emulated on a PC) and tbh, it was gathering dust under the TV. Since my mate was going on about this game, I had to jump on the band wagon (hence the purchase from Argos :) ). At first the graphics did suck. It was a jaggedsaurus rex and at first was hard to look away but...hour into, totally forgot about it.
Its a very good game, loads and loads going on and the game doesnt spoon feed you much so you have to work it out by yourself. The fact you can go anywhere is great as you learn from what areas you can and cant go. I was lost at first as there is no actualy Level but thats ok, you just have to work it all out :)

I've heard there's frame rate issues with the Wii U version compared to the Switch version.

It had an update yesterday and is running the same as the Switch when docked now although it's at 720p and not 900p. Comparisons are available on Youtube. The Switch is most definitely not worth buying this game for if you already own or can buy a cheap Wii U now.


What update?? Not seen one since launch? oO
My physical amazon Wii U pre-order is now 'shipping today' and expected delivery tuesday. I guess they got some in stock then.

If stock is on a short supply as this thread seems to indicate, that's very shoddy from Nintendo.
There's a loyal Wii u fanbase out there who have been patiently waiting for 2 years for the game. To then release a reduced quantity for the Wii u (presumably hoping it will make fans jump you the switch) is very poor indeed and smacks of disloyalty.
I love Zelda, but am not planning on buying a switch yet (or possibly at all, if the games line up doesn't improve) and can't justify an rrp of £45[/quo

Many people have not received their copies from Amazon yet and places like Game are sold out despite charging £59.99!
I think it is probably a deliberate ploy to push people into buying a switch like you said, but it could just lead to more people pirating the game if they can't get hold of a copy at a sensible price.

Good price for a launch day game that will be hard to come by. Most stores won't stock Wii U games any more, and those that do will charge £60.

This looks like it could be worse than the GC TP situation.

I honestly cannot believe after all the years of hype and waiting around Nintendo have not bothered to make enough copies of this available to Wii U owners, they really couldn't care less about the loyal Nintendo fans who supported the Wii U.
Have they not produced many for the wii u?

It's not as widely available. The Nintendo Store and Argos only stock the Switch version.


Afraid I have to disagree:

Buccaneered this a couple a days ago. Nintendo's own fault for having bobbins security on their servers.

Do you mean you pirated it?

When Nintendo say 'Holiday' don't they sometimes mean thanksgiving?
Anyway - doesn't seem to offer anything at the moment.
"Holiday" can typically mean anything from around October onwards.

there is no reason to pre order dlc its always going to be there and im sure you only get a switch tshirt for link to begin with
There's 3 chests with stuff in on day one. One has the Tshirt. I'm going to give it a few hours til someone makes a youtube vid of what's in the chests then decide if I 'need' it :)

I strongly suspect there will be some cool outfits in the other chests to drive sales. Nintendo knows us well XD

they told me it was beyond their limitations to give me any money back

3 different people on chat told me this too but I persisted as a matter of principle.

Their argument was that the cancelled order WAS NOT the Deluxe guide. All they kept repeating was the item title 'The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild: The Complete Official Guide' does not mention Deluxe.

However I pointed out that the picture, description AND ASIN number was the same as their .COM site

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1911015214/
<Pulled product because of spoilers


https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1911015214/ <Current ASIN number with the same product on the .COM site.

After all this they were still having none of it, I asked to speak to a supervisor who was having none of it too, stating it was a different product I ordered, but couldn't tell me what version of the guide I had ordered.

In the end (I must have been on chat for over an hour) I think they just got sick of me and offered a £17 refund on my £59.99 order, which I accepted.

Only thing that worries me about ordering it from .com is that Amazon always just ships books in one of those cardboard things so who knows what sort of condition it will be in after its made the journey overseas.
I've had imported books from Amazon in the past - I wouldn't worry. Also, stock levels seem to be fairly steady in the US for now, so if there were to be an issue you may be able to get a replacement arranged.
Alright I've got it ordered from both Amazon UK and US now... crikey this entire thing has been a headache.
On the plus side after several back and forth emails Amazon have said they are going to refund me £20 on my Prime subscription.
what did you say to get 20 pounds back
Nothing special really. As you can see from my comment a few months back when I first ordered this I fully expected it to get cancelled so I've had a few emails back and forth with them in which they confirmed it would still be fulfilled. Lo and behold when it got cancelled they were very apologetic and even bought up that I've been a customer for over 10 years. I was polite and kept my messages brief but they sort of talked themselves into a corner.

The difference here is that Zelda guides tend to hold their value. Particularly the link between worlds guide which is worth £80+ sealed.
Seriously? Are people actually paying that much on ebay for them? Wow
This will come in handy for the hard mode in the roughly £20 season pass :D
Looks nice, but for £40 more than the standard hardback version, its a bit of a stretch. Annoys me how it isn't uniform with the other Zelda Collector's guides though, would have looked much better on my shelf.
Can we get amazon UK to pricematch amazon US...?

what i do with guides - buy guide. forget to use guide and instead look up stuff on my phone. forget about presence of guide until moving house. see if it is worth anything online. give it away to a friend/charity shop.

Lol, my pattern is like that with games: Buy game, then spend more time looking stuff up on Hukd and other sites rather than actually playing. Buy more games and forget about the presence of most games until I can't move for clutter. See if said pile of shame/clutter is worth anything, give most away to a friend or trade them in at the usual places for about 50p each, feel overcome with a sense of buyers remorse.. X)

...then start process once again! :{


indeed, i was the same last year. I'm really trying to buy a newish game on the cheap and then trade it in for a minimal loss. the way I'm going ill have enough on my game card by november to buy a switch and mario for next to nothing. the downside of this method is that i miss out on big online games. by the time bf and cod tempt me none of my friends are still playing them!

I will Simply never use this company again, still nothing received my end, sent a total of 4 emails which they only responded to 1 claiming I didn't provide a full address (which is simply not possible as you select from a list of address's)
The cynical side of me is wondering if they never sent my game at all and since they have raised the price by £10 now they have sold it to someone else
If they expect me to go away quietly they can forget it, I already raised a grievance (not sure if this is correct term) within PayPal and will take it through to a full claim if they continue with being unhelpful and / or not even bothering to reply to me
so how does the situation currently stand? they say your address was not complete, so was your order sent or not? I am assuming they took payment

They are claiming the order was sent on the 1st... I spoke to Royal Mail told them the story that only house number, city and post code were present, Royal Mail stated that it would still be delivered with these details

Simply are claiming dispatch, although I am not entirely sure I believe them now

Yes they took my money when I placed the pre order (when you posted the deal) but I have seen nothing from them

They are saying it's my fault for not putting all address information, which I don't believe I would have done (not done) and are putting responsibility onto me, however after speaking to Royal Mail I am having serious doubts about them

They hardly respond to emails, yet are happy to spam my email address with offers and asking me to rate them on trust pilot (not a good idea atm lol)

Just very disappointed generally with the situation really, but not much I can do other than escalating my case to a claim in PayPal, I just hope PayPal with side with me seeing as they have no proof of posting in the first instance

In that case can I suggest going to a shop and buying one, then if your online order shows up return that one to the shop
If only it were that easy, I don't have the additional funds available to simply (no pun intended) go out and buy another one
I have never used this company before and I am sure they are perfectly fine, it was a great price and deal, hence why I left heat and ordered
Just sharing the disappointment we now have because the game has not arrived
It doesn't help that I can't even reach customer services until monday either

Good to see that it got the drop that I was hoping would come, even if not quite as much as might have been hoped. Still, it's enough to make this slightly cheaper than my Amazon.com order + deliery
drop in price, £42.89.
Firstly, you can just use guides when you get stuck - not for the whole game.
Finding some stuff online is a real pain sometimes
Guides can be helpful.

Secondly, ironically the more expensive ones aren't expected to be used.

This especially won't be opened by most buyers I think.

They're collector's items.

It is a bit nuts I guess.

I've bought two collector's guides, but got both for around £7 each - when they retail at £20.

They are nice, with cloth maps etc. But I've not even opened mine - yeah. Anyway.

They don't really do this for Mario as much. It's just Zelda stuff.

The value lies in the after market. This stuff will go for more on eBay, because people are willing to pay for it.
It's all a bit self reinforcing. They can charge a lot, as it'll go for more in the after market, so people buy it, etc.

I don't know. Anyway, it does seem to have escalated a bit.

The skyward sword wii mote special edition for example was actually a cheap way to get a wii mote.
It retailed at around £45 with a gold wii mote, game, and sountrack CD!

That was crazily good value for money.

Now not so much. Although TPHD wasn't bad value.

To buy all the new Zelda stuff this year though, at full retail, you'd have to spend a lot!
Breath of the wild - £90
Art and artefacts special edition - £65
This - £65
Collector's edition guide - £25

... more will come.

30th anniversary after all.

25th anniversary was good value though!

I guess they want to recoup switch R&D costs!

Why are switch games such a ripoff? 50 quid for a game, no chance lol.

Because no one knows how many they're getting, so no one wants to sell copies they don't/won't have. It'll drop in week one when supply is steadied.

Doesn't look like the switch is selling out with pre orders still avalible.
Nintendo are allocating pre-orders in batches so stores will keep changing their availability. Ever since the Wii lots of stores have been wary about 6 month long waits for pre-orders so only take orders they expect to fill.
The fact they're offering bundles could be a sign that they're having to work harder to sell them or it could be a sign that they're selling so well, they've decided to shift stock to more profitable bundles (margins on consoles by themselves are normally tiny).
I pre ordered 2 one from game and one from Amazon to make sure I got one. Was going to keep them both and sell 1 to help make mine cheaper but with loads of pre orders still not sure if I should just cancel the extra.
I don't think there will be any stock issues come launch. Pretty much all the major outlets still have launch day stock.
good luck with that plan


Are you disputing there is still stock available?

Check out Amazon, Tesco, Very, Smyths etc... All have stock available for launch.

All the diehards will have placed their pre orders already. No way will this be a sell out in the U.K.
Caroline_1993

You will be getting the grey console if you have pre ordered in october.
I had a deposit with game since october reveal as well. I went in on the official jan launch and said i wanted the neon console.
They had to create a new pre-order as the stock codes were different.
Yeah they said that, I'm not too worried as I have neon joy-cons on order directly from Nintendo (£5 cheaper than anywhere else), was mostly just interested in saving £20 but looking at their site, it appears that there aren't actually any bundles that save money.

I have a deposit in-store at GAME since the October reveal so hope I can get this deal still. Will have to go have a word with them.
In the mean time, I'm going to go back to enjoying comments from people getting really upset about the Switch.
Yeah personally I think it's a great concept and I can't wait to challenge my son on MARIO Kart on a flight or where ever we are at the time and bored, plus most planes have USB ports now so power shouldn't be an issue.
Couldn't you already do pretty much that exact same experience for £100's of pounds cheaper with the DS or even a 3DS though?

This is gonna cost you £600 + for 2 switch consoles and 2 copies of mario kart! wtf!!! oO


mk8 is split screen on switch and you have a joycon each. =)

zelda logoIntroducing Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Described by some as “the most impressive game Nintendo has ever created” and as “pure video game ecstasy” by others, Zelda: Breath of the Wild is clearly something special.

The game sees you taking control of Link once again, but this time he has been frozen for 100 years. In the meantime, the evil lord Ganon has assumed control of Hyrule, and it’s Link’s mission to awake, venture forth, and destroy him.

With a huge game world, plenty of non-player characters, runes, weapons and landscapes to experience, Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the richest gameplaying experiences any gamer will have experienced. That’s why Nintendo has decided to make it the main launch title for their Switch console, and why so many critics have labelled it the best game ever.

Exhilarating Open-world Game

If you aren’t familiar with the Zelda saga, it will really help to learn a little about where Breath of the Wild has come from before you start to play, and you may even want to try out some of the older versions beforehand as well.

The very first Zelda game appeared in 1986 on the Nintendo Entertainment System which was the brainchild of Japanese game designers Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. After that, a sequel followed one year later, followed by A Link to the Past (the first SNES outing), and then Link’s Awakening, which was an exclusive Gameboy release.

The series then took a huge step forward with the release of Ocarina of Time in 1996 for the N64. The action moved from 2D platforming and overhead exploration to a first-person world that was larger, more interactive and stunningly beautiful.

Ocarina was succeeded by a similar sequel, Majora’s Mask, the first Zelda title to feature sailing as a gameplay element.

Twilight Princess arrived for the Wii in 2006, followed by the Skyward Sword (for Wii and Wii U) in 2011, and then Breath of the Wild which was announced in 2015 and landed in March 2017.

All the while, Zelda players could expect familiar game mechanics, with Link as the main character, enemies to defeat, weapons to collect, Ganon to beat and dungeons to explore. The role of the Princess Zelda changed from episode to episode, but rescuing her generally remained Link’s goal, as did the quest to reunite the three pieces of the ‘Triforce’.

There have been 19 Zelda releases in total (the summary above doesn’t include all of the handheld releases or semi-official releases on other consoles). Many of them can be played on the Wii U via the Nintendo EShop, and they will soon be made available for the Nintendo Switch as well.

How Can You Play Zelda?

Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released in March 2017 for the Wii U and the new Nintendo Switch, and these look likely to be the only platforms the game will be released on. To get the game, you’ll have to download it from the Wii or Switch eShops, buy it in a console bundle or buy a hard copy from one of HotUKDeals gaming merchants.

An Introduction to the Gameplay in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

If you are familiar with older Zelda titles, you’ll have no problems getting up to speed with Breath of the Wild. The basic aspects of the game are consistent with almost every Zelda game, stretching right back to the Legend of Zelda in 1986.

The story sees Link waking up after a 100-year slumber. In the meantime, Hyrule has become overrun by an army of monsters and machines created by Sheikah (the guardian of the world) to defeat Ganon, Link’s nemesis. Although Sheikah succeeded in confining Ganon to Hyrule Castle, the army turned against him, wreaking havoc in Hyrule. At the same time, Ganon has been growing in power, making plans to break free and take control. It’s Link’s role to make sure that doesn’t happen, so he is tasked with finding Ganon and vanquishing him, forever.

Because of Sheikah’s army, Hyrule is a hostile place to wander, and Link begins the game with virtually no weapons to speak of. This sets up a survival-action dynamic, where players have to defeat weaker enemies to acquire their weapons and continue to battle, becoming more powerful, skilled and better equipped.

As you wander around Hyrule, you’ll find that the game has a range of central gameplay elements, including:zelda breath of the wild

  • The Sheikah Slate - This magical device is carried by Link, and allows him to map the world, investigate the abilities and strength of enemies, and to acquire new powers, including bombs and telekinetic abilities.
  • Runes - These are the tools Link needs to activate the powers of the Sheikah Slate. They include round bombs, magnesis (the ability to move items), square bombs, stasis (freezing enemies) and cryonis (creating ice pillars that Link can jump onto).
  • Shrines - Mini dungeons, Shrines will be familiar to Zelda veterans. There are 120 spread across the game map, all of which include rewards like runes when the puzzles they contain are completed.
  • Clothing - Link is sensitive to the different weather conditions in Hyrule, which vary from absolutely freezing to boiling hot. You can collect handy clothing items like the quilted doublet which keeps Link warm, enabling him to traverse the coldest regions of the world map.
  • Cooking - The game world is littered with cooking ingredients and whipping up meals for Link is one of the most important parts of the game. Some foods add health, others increase Link’s stamina, some (like spicy peppers) help him withstand the cold, others make him stealthier, while some increase his speed. Knowing which ones do what, and how to combine them into meals and elixirs is a vital skill.
  • Fairies – You’ll find fairy fountains across the map, which are home to massive great fairies. If you pay them well (in the form of ingredients they need), they will supply you with handy outfits that improve your abilities.
  • Treasure - When you wander around Hyrule, you should also be on the lookout for treasure chests, which could contain run of the mill arrows, or extremely hard to find exotic weapons.
  • Korok Seeds - Link can also collect tiny seeds from animals called Koroks, if he gives them what they want. These seeds can then be handed over to a character called Hestu, who needs them to recreate a set of maracas (seriously). When the maracas are complete, he will reward Link with extra weapons and armour.
  • The Temple of Time - Where Link can go to trade the orbs he earns from completing shrines for new abilities or extra health.

Most of these things are taught to novice players from the start of the game, when Link finds himself on the Great Plateau, high above Hyrule. Here, you can learn combat basics, how to interact with characters, the rudiments of cooking etc. and the difficulty level is low. You’ll need the skills you learn when you find a way down to the main game world below.

Let’s Play Zelda: Breath of the Wild

A Quick Survival Guide for Zelda Players

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a survival game, not a traditional role-playing game, with its levels, classes and hit points. Link just has his standard heart counter to show his health levels, and whatever weapons, clothes or shields he is carrying at one time. So, it’s a simpler game in some respects than most RPGs and more accessible for ordinary gamers.

However, there are some game dynamics that you need to know about if you want to survive (aside from how to fight, which is covered below).

  • Weapons will break, so don’t rely on them. When you start, early weapons will snap like twigs (and may actually be tree branches at first), so you’ll need to constantly harvest weapons from enemies as you defeat them.
  • Towns are a great place to hunt for extra weapons which you’ll often find hanging about in out of the way locations. You can also steal weapons from enemy camps by using your stealth skills.
  • Cooking is vital, so learn how to stew up ingredients as soon as possible. Most ingredients will become more potent when they are stewed, so experiment with different concoctions.
  • There are some handy tricks for moving around the game world. For example, Link can surf on his shield (although this will deplete the shield) or hang-glide from higher points.
  • Link can be threatened by extreme conditions. If he is using wooden weapons, they can catch alight in fiery environments, while metal is susceptible to lightning strikes if Link wanders through severe storms, so watch out.

Different Ways to Attack in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

There’s no way to play through Breath of the Wild without becoming a master of the combat system, so get used to it as quickly as possible. Here are the things to know about this instalment’s combat system:

  • Weapons - Link can use a huge variety of weapons, including swords, clubs, spears, axes, hammers, bows and fire rods, and also has access to plenty of defensive tools, like shields. As noted above, all weapons deplete and you can easily waste them by using them for pointless attacks. An important part of the game involves husbanding your resources and knowing when to attack, and it’s easy to leave yourself defenceless by destroying a weapon during combat.
  • Melee Combat - In melees, players can lock onto different parts of the bodies of enemies, targeting their weapons with deadly precision. The Switch’s Joy-Con allows you to attack by swinging your hand or you can swipe with the ZL button.
  • Ranged weapons - If you don’t want to attack at close quarters, you can use ranged weapons like bows. Aim for headshots if you can as they will deplete your enemy more quickly. Again, you can use the Joy-Con controllers to precisely aim your arrows and unleash them on your adversary, which takes some getting used to but could be the most effective way to attack.
  • Advanced attacks – It’s not all about bludgeoning enemies to death or scoring headshots. You can also use dodges, backflips and flurry attacks to neutralise the strengths of opponents and maximise your hit rate.
  • Enemies - Hyrule is packed with hostile adversaries, and each one has their own strengths and weaknesses. They range from tiny bees (which can pack a nasty sting) to fearsome bokoblins (which look worse than they actually are), guardians (which have tricky laser beam weapons), as well as octoroks and moblins - all of which should be familiar to Zelda veterans.

Ways to Buy Zelda

Firstly, there are two different versions of Breath of the Wild: the Wii U and the Nintendo Switch versions. The good news for Wii U users is that the version for their system is almost identical to that of the Switch. The same gorgeous manga-style graphics and deep gameplay are present, and the action moves at an impressive speed. The differences are in the way you control Link, with the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers bringing a new dimension to combat and general navigation.legend of zelda hyrule

You’ll find a couple of different buying options when you come to make the purchase:

  • The Standard Edition - Including just the game disc (or download) of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and nothing more. Expect the Switch version to cost a little more than the Wii U version.
  • Limited Edition - Nintendo knows that there is a huge community of Zelda fanatics out there, so it’s no surprise that they brought out a limited-edition version. Significantly more expensive than the basic edition, the Limited Edition comes with a CD featuring sounds from the game, a Sheikah Slate carry case, a decorative tapestry, a collectible coin and a Master Sword of Resurrection figurine. It is only available for the Nintendo Switch, not the Wii U.
  • Special Edition - Slightly less feature-packed than the Limited Edition, the Special Edition includes the Sheikah Slate carry case, the tapestry and the CD of game sounds (as well as the game itself, of course).

You can also buy Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild bundles with the Nintendo Switch and the game disc included. This is Nintendo’s major marketing push for their new console, and it’s a good option if you want to buy both the system and its leading title. However, double check to see that the price of the bundle is lower than buying the console and the game separately. You may well find that HotUKDeals merchants are offering cheaper deals than standard bundles, so don’t pay over the odds.

Is it Worth Upgrading to a Nintendo Switch to Play Zelda: Breath of the Wild?

This is the crucial question for Wii U users and the answer is maybe. While the game itself is fantastic on both platforms and there are very few differences between them, buying a Nintendo Switch and Zelda bundle could be a cost-effective way to make the upgrade.

The Wii U isn’t dead by any means (as Zelda shows), but cutting edge gamers will be thinking about moving on to the Switch, with its Joy-Con controllers and extra features. Zelda could be the factor that makes the change worthwhile.

However, if you love your Wii U and have no interest in what the Switch has to offer, there’s no need to upgrade just because Breath of the Wild has come along. It’s still an incredible gaming experience on your system.
