This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Choose the digital code. You will need to switch region to the US to redeem the code then switch back to the UK. Only do this if you have no credit on your UK account.

This will also give you the full amount of Gold Coins. So you could also pick up another game on sale with those on the US estore like Cosmic Star Heroine or maybe 3 games if you choose Toki Tori, Toki, Tori 2+ and Volgarr the Viking or many more combinations.


Couple of quid cheaper than the South Africa store price using a fee free card

Awesome deal but says "Note: Currently, this item is available only to customers located in the United States". ?? Is this just because its a US eshop code?

You just need to change the “content and devices” settings on the Amazon page to US. As it says in the OP to redeem you change the region in your Nintendo profile to US, redeem the code and then switch it back to the UK.

Ok cool. Ive created a secondary US profile (probably from one of your deals on here!) but wasnt sure about that one line. Thanks!

Good deal but for a few quid more you can get it on the South Africa eshop with a lot less hassle. Someone posted it yesterday.
Hot FYI it's no bother changing country to US to redeem a game code then reverting country. I do hear DLC is region specific, but not sure whether that is true for single worldwide version games

I’m not sure it’s a lot less hassle. The only thing extra you are doing here is buying a code from Amazon.

Still available for me. Have you changed the “content and devices” to US ?

Yeah my bad, I was under the impression you had to create a separate account with Nintendo for US purchases and use US gift cards. Didn't realise this was through Amazon also.

I heated this regardless

Im sorry mate, when I go to content and devices do I change my country under 'preferences', if so, any particular address thats better (i.e. US tax stuff)?
Nice one mate

Yes. You can also use a US VPN to buy that’s what I used. Also Oregon is a good state to use.

Ive just done it mate. Go to 'Your Account', 'Manage Content and Devices', 'Preferences', 'Country/Region settings'. I changed to a marriott in Denver. Purchase went through straightaway and I changed back to my uk address. Added code to my US account and its downloading now. Thanks again ThePointyEnd. Legend.

Looks like this. Go to account and then content and devices.

First up: thanks a lot OP, bought and downloading.

Secondly, anyone having trouble may be having the same trouble I did: the 'preferences' doesn't appear under 'content and devices' if you are on amazon.com. You need to do that step on amazon.co.uk, then go to Amazon.com to buy the game. Code was available immediately for me, put it in on my switch, and it is now downloading whilst I switched my address and region back over on amazon.co.uk. Whole process is three or four minutes beginning to end, though I already had a second us account on my switch from an older deal.

Edit: one thing I hadn't realised is transferring cancelled other members of your Amazon household, so I needed to re-add them afterwards.

Do you have to change the Switch region to US too?

No.
Interested in this, keen to flog my physical copy and go digital, makes more sense with a Switch Lite.

I assume I can just make a second Amazon.com account rather than messing with my UK accounts. I share my Dad's prime and don't want risk messing that up.

Yes you can make a US account.
And after getting it with the US account you can still play it with your UK account
Anybody who has never played BOTW is *so* lucky! You’re in for a treat. ^_^

I nearly went for it but I think I'd prefer physical for a game like this as resale value is pretty good.
Help, just bought on US Amazon.com and purchase gone through but no sign of code via email or in my amazon account, is there something wrong or does it take a while to come through?
Am I being thick here? Used a VPN to put me in Dallas, changed amazon to US and used a zip code for Dallas. But I get an error when I try to buy

Can anyone help me out?

Checking again the transaction is pending, I used a UK mastercard, so maybe they will bounce the transaction?

From what I remember there's a limit on how many times you can change then a cool down period from when you change back to adding family members. I've done this before to get cheap games and messed up my family members because I'd done it already in the last 6 months or something like that.

It’s possible your bank has put a hold on it, because it is US, and why it is pending.

Hmm, that sounds possible. Thats annoying, card may now be blocked...
Why won’t Amazon UK price match this? I contacted them yesterday once the eshop price went live but they just cut me off.

Right finally got it ordered, on my switch will I need to change it to US to claim the game code?

Or can I do it on the UK?
Do you lose the gold coins if you change the region on your switch? Got like 10£ worth of gold coins, wouldn't want it to go to waste
I’ve got my code in an email but it’s not recognising it? Anyone else had this issue? I think it’s recognised that it’s a US game code on a UK Switch Error Code: 9001-6561
