Wii U version's out on the same day as well.

Is this confirmed anywhere? All the pre-order sites have the Switch version as 3/3, but the WiiU version as "March".

Watch them pull a Twilight Princess and release it two weeks later .

I'd be more concerned if they pulled a twilight princess and released the better version on Wii U.

I mean that's probably what is going to happen. It'll be a big hit to Switch launch sales if you can get a functionally identical version of its killer app on a system that's available for ~$100 used.

Luckily, I feel the opposite.

Place holder Wii U box is still the best of the 3 imo.

Everything about Breath of the Wild is extremely my poo poo. I'm still wary of the possibility of a boring open world but aside from that I love everything I'm seeing.

I feel like the whole thing with Hyrule's glory days being long ago and the rusted Master Sword are meant to really hit those nostalgia buttons hard for Zelda old timers like me. Also I'm digging formless primal evil Sauron Ganon.

For once I kinda dig the US box art for something more than the alternative. The blue-and-orange thing is way played out but I dunno, I'm into the whole stare-out-over-the-horizon deal.

Also the English logo for the game is way better than the Japanese one just because it includes the rusted-out Master Sword.

I hate to tell you this but they are gone. They went up around 2:30 am central time. It disappeared quickly from Gamestop. Then Amazon listed the master and special editions. The master edition had a nearly 30 dollar discount for prime members. That was gone quick and the gamestop one came back as people canceled their orders to get the cheaper Amazon one. Then it disappeared again. The Special edition disappeared from Amazon shortly afterward as it was 20 dollars cheaper.

I ordered the special addition... for the Wii U. But Aside from Amazon saying that it was for the Wii U, I have seen no confirmation that the Wii U is getting a special addition. I'm confused. Not worried about getting the game now (saw a video of the two games side by side and the graphically upgrade isn't worth $400 to me) but I would be bummed if I can't get a dope carrying case for my future switch current 3ds plus the soundtrack...

Do any of the amiibos give you something in-game you can't get without them?

Like do you have a wolf in-game if you don't have the TP amiibo?

On the other hand the Japanese logo is super retro in a very primal way

Check twitter and YouTube. Seen several side by side comparisons. It doesn't look as sharp, but it sure as hell doesn't look $420 better. Not hating on the Switch, but I already have a Wii U and a pro controller so...

You might want to check your order. I don't think there is a WiiU Special Edition. I checked my Amazon order and it says Special Edition - Switch. The product page now says switch instead of Wii U like it did last night.

Theoretically it would be $420 vs. $60+whatever you paid for your Wii U and pro controller... Unless you aren't gonna buy any other games for the Switch but you did for the U.

After 4 years with the U the only games that have stuck with me are 3D World, MK8, the Bayo's, Splatoon and Tropical Freeze (not counting zelda HD). To a lesser extent Mario Maker and NSMBU. They nearly are gonna exceed that in the first year here if SMO is as good as it looked in that trailer.

Just did and it also says switch. Oh well. The Annoying thing is that the Amazon page order for the Wii U addition is still the old picture and release date says march 13th? I'm confused

If you're just after the game itself I can't imagine there being a problem with just pre ordering it whenever/day before, or walking into a store and getting it. I can't think of a time there was an actual shortage of a game in the Amazon era.

Master's Edition doesn't appear to have been in stock anywhere all day today.

They ran out, it's gone.

Also, looks like there's gryoscopic bow aiming. I liked the gyro aiming stuff in Skyward Sword but no waggle sword would be good.

Now that the Joycons are confirmed to work like Wiimotes, I guess Skyward Sword HD is an inevitability.

I think you mean "Master, I predict a 95% likelyhood of this game getting an HD remake."

They've gotten so much better at making amiibos. Remember the smash amiibos with just piss-colored rectangles for support stands

They insisted on having the same design as the in-game trophies, except those weren't designed to be physical.

I'm wondering the same. I have the special addition pre ordered, because I thought it was the Wii U version. Now I'm seeing just the special addition on EBay is going for about $200... I'm thinking I'll keep my pre order and watch prices. If it stays that way I may flip it and get paid to play BOTW on the Wii U

Danke. Preordered a Switch and regular edition of Zelda from Amazon. Still not entirely sold on the Switch, but I guess I have a month to change my mind if I'm not entirely confident in it.
