Is the U.S. getting the Gannondorf statue? I've only seen pictures for the Europe version. I will pay msrp for that thing.

While I'm not really interested in it because of the download version of the game, I hope someone else other than GS picks this up. Same with the Ganon figure.

I will need to stop in GameStop after work today and get my reserve switched to the Ganondorf version. Hopefully it is in the system by then.

Sucks that they are throwing the extra goodies as digital downloads. I like owning physical copies.. so even though this is a good deal and the gamepad looks awesome, looks like I'll be waiting to pick a Wii U up.

There is no way this wont' sell out, the MSRP is the exact same as the regular Deluxe, but with a free premium game, and that digital code for Hyrule Historia.

Considering most of corporate is at the GS convention in Vegas don't be surprised if it takes until Friday for it to show up.

Am I crazy, or doesn't it also have a special Zelda themed gamepad?


I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Will they have these in store? The website says store pickup is not an option. I wouldn't want to pay shipping.

I am guessing that if you can preorder it from store then you can pick it up in store. Not sure though.

Called my local Gamestop and was told they have 2 SKU's in the system. He said the Limited Edition was showing for $59.99 rather than $54.99, but that the prices had just changed so they are likely still updating the info.

Weird question.

I want to pre-order the Wii-U Zelda bundle, it's avaliable online. Can I pre-order it at full price now then later add trade in-gift cards/credit to it to reduce the price?

The only online site I know of that allows that is Amazon and they don't sell Nintendo hardware.

Can anyone speculate on how limited this bundle will be? Will this be more excessively produced like the New Super Mario Bros red Wii bundle and therefor be available for months to come or will it be comparable to 3DS limited edition releases and have more of a single-ish production? I know no legitimate details have been released on this but just wanted to hear other peoples perspectives.

I'm so glad it's not a gold console... I really don't need two Wii Us.

Speculation you say??? You've come to the right place! *snaps suspenders*

I predict a flood of these consoles. It's cheaper to not produce a physical game and since they're taking a loss on the console they're going to prefer you buy this to the Nintendoland bundles. Plus it's Zelda and this seems like something of a Hail Mary pass to sell a ton of consoles because so far they've sold almost nothing.

So yeah I predict that this will be limited to the number they can sell.

I also predict Deader comes and tells me I'm wrong!

Yeah I was thinking along the same lines. At least it's still a fair opportunity for me to finally get a Wii U. Unfortunately i'll probably force myself to also buy the physical game for the statue.  :???:
