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

Not really a deal, but a heads up as this is selling out fairly quickly. Hope it helps someone.

I think the cheapest was Smyths at around £64.99 a while ago, but that's sold out now.

Why am I soooooooo tempted by this, it is a game I really want, in a great big box I haven't got room for, a Steelbook I wont use and an artbook I won't read

Good price though, ordered

Added heat but be aware that Amazon are trialling taking money before dispatch on pre-orders. I think its currently random on who gets charged early though...
I think they stopped that. I saw someone on Twitter (maybe Postabargain) mention that preorders wouldn't be charged right away.

Well they debited my bank a month before release on my last pre-order.
Got one, thanks OP
Is this a remake of the original? I haven't really been in to games in a long time as they don't seem as fun to me any more, but Nintendo still seem to be pushing out a lot of games that I would enjoy, but I keep putting off buying a switch.

They did this to me for a previous pre-order and to be fair I hadn't even realized they took the money before dispatch. I later received an email from them stating that it was an error which shouldn't have happened and it wouldn't happen again.
Great, thanks!!

They told me it was an intentional trial they were implementing. They said this:

We have been trialing a new authorisation method, When you pre-order an item that is yet to be released, we charge you the full order amount when the item gets dispatched. If the shipping date is set after more than five days, that charge occurs on the fifth day since your order was placed.

It looks like we are getting misleading information, here is the email I received from them;

Is it worth paying extra for these special editions? I will 100% get this game and I can't wait but I don't know whether it's worth grabbing on of these over the standard game?

That's good to know, as it was ridiculous. They charged me the full amount a month early even though I had paid the majority of the order value by gift card balance...

ah, that explains why I received the apology email.

I wonder how quick this will go OOS, normally Amazon have the highest quantity on these. So this will test how limited these actually are, as every other retailer has sold out in minutes.
Top man! Thanks a lot. I bought with shopto a few weeks ago but it doesn’t show up in my orders. So I’m happy it’s finally in stock somewhere else

Yeah remake of the gameboy title. Now is probably a good time to get a Switch with the 20% discount on various bundles from AO on eBay (ends tomorrow). You’d probably quite like Mario Odyssey too if you’re looking for another title to entice you back into the gaming fold...

Amazon and game from the top of my head are the worst for taking more pre-orders than what they are allocated, therefore you can expect the following;

1) You will get your copy
2) Your delivery will be delayed until they can obtain more stock
3) Your order will be cancelled due to all allocation being fulfilled and no more stock available.

I'm tempted and I don't even own a NIntendo Switch.
Who is going to be the last to list this then, Argos or Nintendo?

Is Mario Odyssey more free roaming or a platformer (so quite easy to play and not her lost in different worlds!)

It definitely looks that way, considering Amazon will let you place multiple orders with quantities of 999
Thanks, had some credit I needed to use.

Zelda Breath of the Wild is incredible if you want a Zelda game to justify your need for a Switch.
Like some asked earlier, is this worth an extra £30 over just the game. I cant figure out why people go so mad for these Limited edition sets. Is it the resale value?
hat_ok_dear26/06/2019 12:02

Could you post a link to one of these Switch bundles with 20% off? Cheers


Several were in the AO Ebay shop but we're a few days into the discount now....this with CTR still available @ £239 ebay.co.uk/itm…Mu2

You know you want to.
Thanks OP! I've not played the original, but reviews for it are so solid that I figured I might regret missing out on this.

I think you got the best of them - can only see CTR (£299), Minecraft (£299) and a refurb from Music Magpie (£160) left in the discount deal now.

It won’t be in orders as ShopTo have a separate preorders tab. Make sure you cancel it from there if that’s your intention, otherwise you’ll still be charged
Price is good for what it is but contents are not worth the premium price.
