Earlier this week we shared the rather pleasing news that GAME would be offering a musical chest with pre-orders of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, a rather nifty little collectible that plays the famous "Ta-da-da-daaa" sound when opened. That was announced by Nintendo UK, yet GAME has now rather strangely announced — via Twitter, of course — that it won't be offering the extra with pre-orders.

Here's what the retailer had to say:

We'd still hope that the musical chest will be available, whether as a small item to purchase or an incentive elsewhere, perhaps the official Nintendo store.

A rather surprising turn of events, nevertheless; we've approached Nintendo for comment.
