The road to March 3 is almost over, and what a bumpy ride it has been. Ever since preorders went live back in January, the Internet has been inundated with reports of orders being mysteriously canceled from multiple retailers the world over. There was even confirmation of a batch of Switches being stolen, at least one of which was then illegally resold and featured in the now infamous unboxing video a week back.
Now, unfortunately, more cancellations are surfacing. This time concerning a shipment of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Edition from the US retailer Amazon. According to redditor diriaka, their order had been cancelled due to a large shipment going missing. Gaming News on Twitter has also shared the email Amazon has sent out regarding this issue:

Frustratingly, the preordered bundle that was slated to be unboxed at the ZUthon has also been cancelled due to this event. It has not been revealed as to whether or not the shipment was lost or actually stolen, but it appears, regardless of the reason, fans are having little luck recovering their orders.
At the moment, this only appears to be affecting the US branch of Amazon. We will keep you updated as this story progresses.
