Tears of the kingdom - The game collection pre-order dispatch

Hey everyone,

I'm sure everyone is as hyped as I am for tears of the kingdom tomorrow!

I was just wondering if anyone else has ordered from the game collection? If so has their pre-order been dispatched yet?
My partner ordered from them on ebay and his has been dispatched but mine was ordered on their website and is still saying ''preparing to be despatched''
Worried as I am hoping it arrives tomorrow ready for release!

I could just be over worrying but just wanted to check with anyone else who may have ordered from them on their website
Thanks for reading!

    Plenty of time for them to dispatch today for tomorrow.
    I would expect them to do so at any point between now and tonight.
    Always depends on whether then received all stock allocation though. (edited)

    I ordered from Game Collection and same as you. If you scroll to the bottom, it does say “shipped” so not sure if it has or hasn’t.

    I’ve pre-ordered a few things from them recently and all arrived on release day. Although they were dispatched earlier in the day.

    Like you, hoping it’s fine for tomorrow! Fingers crossed

    thank you! Mine says shipped at the bottom as well! I wonder if it’s just not updated haha! I’ve not ordered from them for a while but did get games on release day in the past!

    Fingers crossed we get our copies early tomorrow!

    Thanks again for letting me know as mines in the same state as yours 🤞

    I'll try and stay spoiler free but 20 minutes into the game and it's been great so far! The characters seem to move a slight bit quicker than botw, the controls have been slightly tweaked (which is a tiny bit jarring) and, bad news, whistle running is now gone!

    Ahhhhh yay I’m happy they move abit quicker! The controls will defo throw me off abit as I have been replaying botw this week I’m sure I’ll get used to them!

    Oh no they got rid of whistle running

    Thanks for the heads up!

    My partners copy arrived. I also got the 'order has shipped this morning' email at 11am. I clicked on the tracking and it had been delivered. (edited)

    Still no email as of this morning, mine shows the same as others. Really hoping people start posting in here when theirs arrive today from Game Collection to put my mind at ease!
