UK Zelda fans, get your piggy banks ready: Nintendo UK announced Monday that in addition to the games and consoles already available on the Official Nintendo Online Store, fans can now purchase a variety of Nintendo merchandise including clothing, figurines, accessories and game guides.
Over 170 new items are for sale, including incredible Zelda gear and collectibles. Exclusive and detailed figurines of Link on Epona and Ganondorf are among the goodies listed. The Link figurine is 17 inches tall but is currently sold out, however quick fans can still pick up the 23-inch tall Ganondorf for £299.99 (about $500). There is also a large collection of Zelda-themed wallets, hoodies, and hats and you can buy Prima’s official Zelda box set as well. But act fast, as items are selling quickly.
Outside the land of Hyrule, Nintendo fans will be glad to find figurines of Samus and Tanooki Mario, red and green Wii U Mario Kart Wheels, Donkey Kong hoodies, NES Controller belt buckles, and lots more. Many of these items are available for the first time in Europe.
“We’re often asked why Limited Edition or Official items aren’t available in the UK, so it’s great to be able to offer fans a hub for purchasing them.”
“We’re excited to be adding Merchandise to the Official Nintendo Online Store offering,” comments John Donnellan, Head of Ecommerce at Nintendo UK, in a press release. “We’re often asked why Limited Edition or Official items aren’t available in the UK, so it’s great to be able to offer fans a hub for purchasing them. We’re looking forward to being able to broaden this selection by adding further limited edition and exclusive items to the site over the coming months.”
All items can be shipped within the UK in 3-5 business days for free, so that’s a plus. That said, it would still cost a massive amount to pick up all this official Zelda swag, but probably well worth it if you have enough dough to shovel.
