Zelda Savings: The Wind Waker HD Plus A Link Between Worlds

By Viet Do . September 21, 2013 . 11:00am


While these two Zelda deals won’t exactly win the “deal of the year” award (if there’s even such a thing), discounts on Zelda games are few and far in between. The upcoming retail box “Special Edition Gold Pack” of the Wii U title The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD has a pre-order bonus of a $7 NewEgg promotional gift card while The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS is on sale for $35 after a $5 coupon.


Technically if you want both games, you should be able to first buy The Wind Waker HD, get the $7 gift card, and apply it towards the purchase of A Link Between Worlds. This nets you both games for $77.98 vs the original $90 – not too terrible a deal.


For those unaware, the digital download version of The Wind Waker HD was released just yesterday, whereas the retail box “Special Edition Gold Pack” copy will be out on October 4th. As far as I can tell, the “Gold Pack” consist of gold foil artwork cover for the box case along with uh, shiny paper materials within for the manual.  Small extras for those preferring a physical copy, I suppose.


For more hot deals of the week, check the list below of console and PC offerings. Most of the PC game deals are available in other regions, and all titles activate on Steam except for FFXIV: ARR (duh).

    hoping diablo drops even more soon. 30 would be the perfect price.

    • You might have to wait awhile but it should happen eventually. Probably upcoming holiday season.

  • Rafael Monteiro

    I doubt any ot the Zeldas will get stellar sales, so just wait and buy it used

    • niko

      Zelda’s from 10 years ago are still expensive. You think the price will go down prior to Christmas or are you advocating waiting years?

    • AnimeRemix

      I don’t understand your logic for buying the games used… Then again, I really don’t want to take the time to understand it, so whatever float your boat…=/

      • Rafael Monteiro

        There’s no point in paying launch price for these titles. Nintendo is pretty much against price cuts, but a lot of people will return them used, so just buy these ones for a much better price.

        Skyward Sword was a lot cheaper few weeks after launch

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      ??? Don’t really understand the purpose of this post here lol.

    Man, there’s already a way to get 12 bucks off GTA5? I swear, anyone who pays the full $60 for a new game nowadays is a total sucker.

  • Eric Harris

    where are these people seeing “special edition gold pack”? I haven’t seen those wording anywhere, amazon, best buy, newegg. They claim early copies come with gold foil artwork? That sounds cool but I’m looking for confirmation.

    • Flandre Scarlet

      Early copies have the gold foil artwork. Take a look on Amazon’s page, for example. I wouldn’t call it a “special edition”, more like an early print run.

      • Eric Harris

        Thanks, but where does it say that in text on amazon?
