Update 3/1: It’s back and its now available at Walmart with free shipping or store-pick up option available depending on your area.
Nintendo Switch’s upcoming The Legend of Zelda Breath of Wild is a hot commodity this week as many retailers are out of stock on the game, particularly the $99 Special Edition. The good news for Zelda (and Switch) fans is that an unexpected retailer now has plenty of item in stock. Over at
Dell.com Walmart, you can pre-order The Legend of Zelda Breath of Wild Special Edition for $99 – no strings attached. Unlike Dell, Walmart will also have store pick-up option available depending on the area you live in. If you don’t want to wait for shipping, ordering online for store pick-up seems like the best way to secure a copy.
- Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special Edition (Nintendo Switch) — $99.99
- Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch) — $59.99
Dell also has the standard edition of the game at $59.99, though this isn’t anything particular noteworthy as the game isn’t exactly experiencing a supply issue as its collector’s edition (except for Amazon which doesn’t seem to carry either in stock). When you pre-order from Dell, games are often ship before release date so that it’ll arrive as close to release date as possible. During checkout, we suggest you opt into Dell’s “Advantage” membership, which is free to sign-up. With this perk, you’ll receive free two-day expedited shipping on pre-order games, giving you an extra chance to get Breath of the Wild that much earlier.
The Special Edition, in case you’re out of the loop, comes with:
- Nintendo Switch Sheikah Slate Carrying Case
- Sheikan Eye Collectible Coin
- Relic of Hyrule: Calamity Ganon Tapestry and Weather-Worn map
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sound Select CD
Whether these phsycial goodies are good enough for the extra $40 would be dependent on you – in either case, this is a far cry from the $600 price tag some eBay scalpers are trying to offload for. The more “reasonable” ones are at about $150, while the Master Edition which is completely sold out is being sold typically for $400 on eBay. Tsk tsk.
