Think this is the lowest price yet for this game at Argos, never played it myself but will be picking it up later
Hope this is useful to other Wii U owners.

Update - Amazon have price matched this too.

This is the original version. Switch one was made after this one.

Both versions came out at the same time. They are exactly the same in terms of content and gameplay.

Agreed only difference is mobility on Switch infinite vs 6 feet on WiiU.

Apparently the Wii U version is also less glitchy overall compared to the Switch one.

Wii U ver has more stuttering. But it's never really bad.
Yeah some areas really struggle to run smoothly but overall it’s fine to play. Only just finished the main story the other day. Lot more shrines to discover though yet!
Awesome game. Just buy it!
Played through hundreds and hundreds of hours of this and very barely noticed any significant slowdown. Worth every penny of the RRP.
I have the Switch version and have also played the game on my cousins Wii U. Content and gameplay is exactly the same on both. The Switch version is a smoother experience with regard to framerate especially in busy places like villages. Switch is also outputting at a slightly higher resolution when docked 900p vs 720p. It's never bothered my cousin though and he's put nearly as much time into it as I have (about 150 hours).
Can't force myself to vote HOT or buy it at £32, raging that i couldn't get if from Asdas for £15

I’d add the Amazon price match to your title op!
Got really excited when I saw this for a minute. Then realised it was the Wii U version. I only have a switch. Bought it the other day before realising just how expensive all of the games are.
Ive got one to get rid of, still sealed, ended up with Switch version not long after

900p is actually quite a lot higher resolution than 720p. It's slightly over 40% higher

Not to mention playing the game in 2160p aka 4K resolution plus other significant enhancements on PC using Cemu. By far the best way to experience Zelda BotW.

I've played 240 hours on Switch and while it's really nice playing at 1440p/60fps on CEMU (I mean duh, it's great!) I much prefer the portability :P

Yes it was, the Wii U version was made first though and Switch version was ported over in 8 months.

Again, the wiiu version was held back for the switch and content removed. The original wiiu had all the sheika slate stuff on the wiiu tablet screen all the time.

Again, they are both exactly the same game. Barring the obvious Wii U specific tablet features.
Great price for an incredible game. I've had it on the Wii U, CEMU and the Switch.

In order of which is best the Wii U version comes close to the Switch (minus portability and a slight resolution drop). But if you are intending to get a Switch then its worth holding out, if not you wont be disappointed with this version.

CEMU looks good but is buggy as hell, regularly crashes and runs like a pig (I have a gtx 1080ti too). It's great to what it would look like in 4k but not an enjoyable experience at all bordering on unplayable, but that's piracy for you.

Voted hot

I caught 2, going to release them in the eBay nature reserve.
This is a great price, but be aware that this version is inferior to the Switch version.
This suffers from lag and stuttering etc, when battling enemies or even running down a hill with to much grass (in my experience).
But for the price, and the hours of gameplay, myself 💯+ hours on the WiiU, but I'd still pick the switch version if I could choose again.
Switch has a higher frame rate if you're playing un-docked - as it runs at a lower resolution.

Good for you but I've had no end of problems. Like I said, the best experience is on the Switch. I've put in 200+ hours and 95% of that time I was undocked and out of the house!

It's like downloading an android emulator for a PC and claiming its better than an S8 because its more "powerful"

I think you mean a more stable frame rate, it doesn't run above 30fps, feels great anyway.
