Want the book and the map and probably going to gift the game or sell it.  Tried to checkout, but is not available for prime discount.  Hopefully Best Buy will have pre-order available.

I couldn’t agree more.
On that note, does anyone else see the irony of Nintendo bundling a re-release of a game with the Zelda logo advertising 3D capability, only to be bottlenecked by the bundled console model (2D-only)?

The 2DS is awful and there are currently three 3DS' in my home.  I also own Zelda on Switch.  Goddammit, I think I need both of these things in the OP.  Why Nintendo?  Why you do this to mee?

I picked up a 2ds for cheap a while back, after I finally broke down and bought a black New 3DS. While the 3DS isnt exactly great (99% of my handheld gaming was at the time on a Vita... so much better graphics and remote play) the 2DS.... feels more like one of those tiger games with better buttons. 

Battery drained on the 2DS one day... still haven't recharged it lol.

 

If someone owns a Switch, and does not own BOTW....  :shame:

 

 

Side note: With Ferrari Racers last post... how many people will be trampled trying to buy 1 or both of these?

and I say by the end of the week we will have our first person camping outside a Bestbuy for one. (In costume)

I already preordered the Explorer's Edition from Amazon, so I won't get trampled for that.

The box looks better than the system.  Remember amazon did the 99 dollar ones a few hours early last year so don't trust what date they say.  Be ready that whole week.

Just bought an Odyssey Switch bundle and was going to buy Zelda when I finished Mario, but looks like now I'll wait.

:/ nothing about that 2ds screams Zelda edition. I mean damn put a triforce logo in a corner or something. Without the box I'd think it was just a Luigi inspired 2ds

Does anybody have any idea what's in the book?  I have the game on Wii U, but I'm picking up a Switch soon and I'm trying to decide how much I need to double dip.

Edit: Amazon took the listing down or sold out shortly after.

Is Zelda Explorer supposed to be a Black Friday exclusive or just available starting Black Friday?

Does it matter? Either way, it won't stick around for long.

It does. I can either go get it on BF with the massive crowds or wait to get it a week later.

I assume amazon will adjust the 20% off preorder because i ordered it b4 they applied the 20% off to those BOTW orders.

 

Meanwhile overpriced ebay BOTW has begun!!!

ha only Amazon got sold out for now. I guess it's never to soon to be asking for 200$ for it. I hope nintendo makes enough that they get burned on this but it is nintendo after all....

Hoping BotW shows up on BB's site.  Gotta have my GCU.

Not interested at all in that 2DS.

You know "N" sells those standard models with the plates on their online store "refurbished" for $125 right? Not the exact ones for $100 last year, but a decent variety none the less. https://store.ninten...oryId=cat771516

 

If they are like all their other refurbed items, they should be like new. I've been trying to gather some extra funds myself to grab one white and one black for back ups, just in case. Me, my son & wife all have that model, so having a back up is probably a good idea. I'm gonna try and at least get one before there gone, but they've been up awhile now. So I haven't been killing myself to place an order.

I just got a preorder in on amazon.  No 20% applied though.  Hope it kicks in at some point

Nintendo has given me so many damn maps of Hyrule over the years. I'm just going to scatter them all around my house with big red circles and X's drawn on them to make friends and family think I'm losing my mind

I don't understand why the Zelda game doesn't have the 20% off for Prime members.  Do they pick and choose what new games that applies for?

It sometimes takes a while (in some cases weeks or months) for new game listings to show the discount.  I'm sure it has to do with not wanting to inadvertently applying the discount to every listing that goes up because Amazon makes many listing mistakes and often puts up things that aren't video games at all in the video game category on accident.
