Found 29th Jun 2015
First time I've seen this game under £30. Looks to be a very promising game and comes with an artbook if you don't want to shell out extra for the (admittedly tempting) 8-bit Mario amiibo. Free delivery also.

UPDATE: You can also get 10% off with a new Zavvi account (new mail address) with code WELCOME making this £26.99 (thanks to Cyuk for pointing this out)

Part of the wider Zavvi sale where you can get up to 80% off video games, DVDs, merchandise.

ordered, thanks!

Lowest yet, nice find. Heat!

Ordered mine earlier and also QUIDCO get more back as well (supposed to) :-)

Think I'll buy a Wii U again just for this game.... If there is a lot of user content, this game will go for years with new content all the time.

I'd pre-order it somewhere else as a backup just in case.

Can you use zvc5 to take 1.50 of total price also?

Does zavvi take your money straight away?

Thanks. Just ordered for £26.99! Wouldn't have bothered for £32 or £30.

nice one, cheers

I wouldn't trust zavvi I have pre ordered a couple of things with them and they never got to me. I'll pass

I got my Splatoon Limited Edition Squid Amiibo bundle from them 3 days before it came out!!!

Guess its hit and miss with them, which is not nice versus another company that can manage stock more effectively.

Never had any problems myself...

Great deal,would have pounced at this had they not announced that damn 8-bit Amiibo.

Might be a bit disingenuous to call it an art book it'll be closer to a 'how-to' pamphlet or as we used to call them back in the day, an instruction manual.

Good price though, shame it's Zavvi.

Codes can not be used on pre orders. It will go through checkout but they will cancel it when they process it so don't expect one to be delivered.

Read the Zavvi T&C for more information.

Not necessarily true. I had a Smash pre-order go through fine with this code.

If you can't set up a new account, code ZVC5 will give you 5% off and TCB gives you 4% cashback.

Yeah, I don't think I'm going to risk applying a code here - I think I'd rather be fairly certain of getting the game for £30 over £33, than risk losing it completely.

Great price, expecting big things from this game so hopefully it lives up to it

He means that he would have bought this standard edition if the other edition didn't exist, but as he wants the amiibo he will get the other one. The problem is that the other one is sold out from most places.

Going to use my money on this version game.co.uk/en/…394

Cheers, taken a punt with the 5% off.

Why would Mario have a book on warts?

Just got £2.43 tracked from quidco as well as the code.

It's a special Amiibo that you will only be able to get with this game. It looks fantastic, it's a figurine in the style of Mario in the original NES title.

It's not an outright bad thing, but it's bad because there will be high demand for it meaning that retailers will push up the prices way beyond what Nintendo sets the recommended RRP at. The same thing happened with Yoshi's Woolly World. It's bad because it forces loyal customers like us to pay more than we really should.

That being said, I'm definitely getting it!

The amiibo will almost certainly be available outside of the bundle, just as the yarn Yoshis are. After all, there are two versions of it and only one is available bundled.

Well Nintendo set an RRP of £10.99. You tell me why the game can be £20 more expensive with a yarn Amiibo then. They sell for at least 50% more expensive than what they are meant to as retailers are scalping customers before the real scalpers do the same.

Because of the way these things are manufactured. There is never enough to satisfy demand over time as Nintendo is new to releasing figurines, and once one wave has been produced it's straight onto the next one. Some of the prices have been absolutely ludicrous. I can't get a Shulk for less than £40? He's my main on Smash and I refuse to pay a scalp that price because of demand exceeding production.

IIRC, the RRP for the Yarn Yoshi amiibo is above the £10.99 standard price for other amiibo; I'd expect the 8-bit Mario amiibo similarly to be more expensive. My point, though, was that it could be purchased outside of the bundle, not really about prices.

When it comes to stock levels, though, I can't disagree - they're likely to sell out in fairly short order whatever happens. I'm personally looking out for the 'modern' coloured 8-bit Mario,

My order is still safe and hasn't been cancelled thus far. Do I hang on or order elsewhere?
