It just wouldn’t be a Zelda release without some special editions full of cool swag, and Breath of the Wild is no exception. Following the announcement of the game’s March 3 release date (only 7 weeks folks!) at Nintendo’s Switch Presentation, the big N announced two special editions for Link’s latest outing.
First up is the Special Edition — retailing at $99.99 in the states — which comes bundled with a Sheikah Slate carry case for your shiny new Switch, a soundtrack CD featuring selections from the game’s already epic soundtrack and the Breath of the Wild commemorative coin, first seen at E3 last year. As well as all that, the set also includes a Relic of Hyrule tapestry, featuring Calamity Ganon on one side, and a map of the game world on the other. Given the size of Breath of the Wild’s setting, that should come in pretty handy!
The second set, known as the Master Edition, comes with everything that the special edition does, as well as the piece de resistence, a Master Sword statue. NOA President Reggie Fils-Aime gave us a closer look during the Nintendo Treehouse livestream and it looks rather special. Secured in a triangle pedestal, it’s a representation of the battered and rusted sword of evil’s bane we’ve become so familiar with in Breath of the Wild’s trailers and logo. A solitary flower stands alongside to add a touch of elegance to the statue.
The Master Edition retails at $129.99 and is in very limited supply. Pre-orders are already quickly selling out so if you want to get your hands on one, you’ve gotta act fast!
