It's not long now until The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits store shelves and many of you dedicated Zelda fans will no doubt have preordered the limited edition. But - quote Brad Pitt - what's in the box? Thankfully Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma is at hand to do the world's first unboxing video for us.
In addition to the game there is a lovely Sound Selection CD and a the coveted Master Sword of Resurrection figurine. Nice!
Will you be picking up the limited edition bundle or are you happy with just the game alone? Don't forget if you preorder from the Official Nintendo UK Store, you will also get a free Breath of the Wild T-Shirt, featuring a chest print of the Sheikah symbol.

Got it preordered. Can't wait!
Already pre-ordered, but for the Sheikah Slate case I had to import from USA =P
I want that! 😃
"Will you be picking up the limited edition bundle or are you happy with just the game alone?"
This sounds like as if I had any choice. The limited edition has long since been out of stock anywhere. And no, Nintendo UK doesn't ship outside the UK.
Al Newman strikes again.
Of course I went with the limited edition... I'm almost more excited for the Sound Selection CD than for the master sword.
The 'Master Sword of Resurrection' accompanied by a 'Silent Princess'... metaphor for Link and Zelda, maybe?
Sooo wanted the Master Edition (comes with all the stuff the limited edition does but also includes Sheikah Slate case, folder out map and sheikah coin) but the delivery cost was way too much as you could only get it from US sites.
Got this pre-ordered from UK Nintendo Store but will probably be delayed or lost as everything i order from that site.
Sticking with the standard physical release. I'm done with limited editions (unless it's something I think is insanely cool- which I understand and respect some people think this is).
Btw, anyone notice that the game box doesn't have a PEGI or USK rating on the front side?
Will be downloading on Wii U at midnight 3/3! My 1TB HDD awaits.
12 comments deep and we haven't had @Sligeach_Eire come in and say how he won't be getting this version because he's getting it on WiiU?
I kid, I kid anyways. I wish Ireland (or Europe for that matter) got the Master Edition rather than just the limited edition. Can't wait for Zelda. Only game for me on launch day for Switch sadly, (VC releases, if they even HAVE a launch VC, not withstanding)
Interesting to note that they picked the Limited rather than Master edition to unbox.
That's a good limited edition. I'm not interested though. I must remind myself that I already have a real size Master Sword replica, and not a cheap one
I rather buy the guardian amiibo or this awesome looking strategy guide:
@gatorboi352 It's possible there will be an early download release for this as well.
Same here lol hey it looks gorgeous can't wait till 3rd
@Robin_Aisaka I've had my eye (pun intended) on this guide as well.
Pre-ordered, hype is all over me!
A return to a Nintendo unboxing video! Nice update after revisiting the Iwata WiiU one here the other day. Aonuma's always fun in videos!
@Robin_Aisaka I considered getting the strat guide to go with my hardback collectors set, but I realized I never actually use the strat guides, and I'd rather have the Art & Artifacts book
I want this but you couldn't get it in stores only online, and I didn't even know it existed until I walked in to pre-order my switch the day after the press conference. At that time everything was sold out and it was hopeless :/
I just want the CD... and I'm not sure I want to pay $100 for the privilege...
I'm not interested in any of the other junk.
@zip but Amazon UK ships ;] run for it: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Legend-Zelda-Breath-Limited-Nintendo/dp/B01MS6R9FG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1487775725&sr=8-2&keywords=breath+of+the+wild
PS: really run, because I think it will be not for long available.
@KIREEK that would be the Sheikah Slate case for me ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
@Menchi187 the video was directed to Europe. We do not have Master Edition here =
I really wish the Wii U had gotten an LE release.
@NEStalgia I use when I replay a game to finish it 100%. The first time I play a Zelda game I like to find out everything by myself.
@SPG run for it: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Legend-Zelda-Breath-Limited-Nintendo/dp/B01MS6R9FG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1487775725&sr=8-2&keywords=breath+of+the+wild
From the American special edition, I'm excited for the case and for the CD. The map is.... meh, and the coin probably will be in my wallet, like a lucky charm.
Won't get the Master edition, since I'm done with collecting stuff - I'll have to throw a lot of junk away if I move to an apartment.
That is a monster of a box for the size of the sword...suddenly regretting ordering it...I only want to soundtrack really! Hope it's size doesn't slow the delivery speed or I'll have a Switch and no game!
I'd have bought the Special Edition if had had the same contents as the US one, but as usual in the EU we are ripped off big style.
For those who still want it, Smyth's Toys have them in stock for £79.99.
It's a lovely Special Edition and a nice video.
@setezerocinco Didn't realize it was an EU focused video! Makes sense then.
@setezerocinco I don't really want to import it from europe and have 3 copies of breath of the wild
@SPG oh I thought you lived in Europe and had just missed the pre-order =P
Europe gets no map or Skeikah Slate Switch case. Stay classy Nintendo!
@Menchi187 I posted it in the forums hours ago, so I'd already seen it and was in no rush to comment.
By the way, I don't know if you've heard but I'm getting the game for the Wii U.
Oh no Eiji Aonuma had stolen a Switch as well.
The sword statue didn't look that great to me so I got the special edition with just the Switch case and map.
The temptation to buy the new console at launch for Zelda is very, very real. I'm not sure if I should cave in or not.
@setezerocinco nah, the sword is cool but at least with the NA special edition I get a carrying case for my switch....will probably never use it because it will always be docked but it's there if I need it.
i'll see if i can grab the sword off of ebay for a reasonable price a few weeks after launch....or get lucky when i walk into gamestop next friday (unlikely)
Considering the box is so huge, I expected more. But all we get the CD and figurine. Not sure it's worth the extra £50. Meanwhile in USA, they get the same and more!
@SPG I also do not care too much for the sword, just want the case.
@whodatninja yeah, gamestop are charging €109 for this. I have it and the switch paid off. But think I'm gonna change Zelda to the standard version. Statue is huge and would be an eye sore after a few weeks. And CD will be put on a shelf to never be listened to. Save myself €40 and put that towards another launch game I think.
Bit of a rip compared to the US version. Case and coin including the statue, a map and CD? Much better value.
Wonder if the new fast racing neo will get a physical release. Maybe at launch, surprise release. Probably not
I'm mad that Nintendo didn't add the case, coin or map for Europe. Wish they would do the same types of pre orders for everywhere and not how they are doing it now.
@setezerocinco I almost never 100% games just because I get bored of collect-a-thon completionism, but in a Zelda game I like KNOWING it's not 100%. That way 30 years from now when they re-release it there's still new things for me to do and new secrets to find, like the originals still are today!
I had preordered it for £75 cos I wanted the CD but in the end sold it to my friend. Can't be bothered with the boxes and statuette cluttering up the place.
I'll actually be in the States during the launch so will try my luck at getting the Limited Edition out there but prepared to have no luck. Hopefully Japan will release an official full OST.
Darn you for not making more of the Master Edition!!!!!!!! I wanted that statue!
Sigh. Well we all know it will be on ebay soon enough.
Also, poor Fi. Time has not been kind to her.
Pls gimme preorder for this one q_q
I can't afford this, so I'll just buy the game...
As much as I'm a sucker for splashing out on special editions, Nintendo's efforts always look so...amateurish in comparison to other offerings, but this one looks like they've got it together. I'm not enough of a Zelda fan to care, but that Master Sword looks great!
@setezerocinco i'll buy it off of you if you pick it up lol
I love the music in that video.
I hope it's in the game/on the CD. =D
Wasn't this supposed to come with the map and coin as well?
Honestly still pissed that the US gets that great case. would definitely have bought that.
@setezerocinco Amazon notifications are useless. Out of stock.
Wii U version all the way. To heck with Nintendo's stock shortages!
@invictus4000 NA version yes. Not the EU version. NA has two versions Master and Special. Both versions have the map, case, coin and soundtrack while the long sold out Master edition has the statue as well.
@zip Typically I either never receive an Amazon notification or I receive a notification about a week after the product comes into stock and usually after it's already out of stock again. Amazon is the technology king as far as shopping carts go. How can that feature not work still?
I got the Special Edition, but not the Master one. The sword is cool and all, but after what i'll be spending on the Switch I couldn't justify all that extra money for something that'll just collect dust.
I got the Special Edition, which has all the same contents minus the sword figurine. It also looks like this Limited Edition doesn't include the map or coin, which are two things included in the Special Edition in North America.
The flowers are called 'Silent Princess' hey...."Master, there is a 85% chance that these flowers are related to the one you call Zelda"
Getting it for wii u so..
@DarthFoxMcCloud Those are in the limited edition in North America too
I preordered the Special Edition but decided to pass on the Master Edition. I didn't see the point to pay $30 more for just one neat-looking extra that would just collect dust after the first couple of days.
What app is Nintendo using for that switch to display a slideshow? Maybe the pre-installed photo/screenshot app?
@nobboysbro We don't have "limited editions" in North America. We have the Master Edition (which includes the Master Sword figurine, coin, map, game, and CD) and the Special Edition (which includes everything but the Sword figure). That's what I was getting at in my original comment.
@setezerocinco how you get that edition, cannot find master or special edition anywhere to get that case
@nintyfandavid unfortunately eBay, but I found it not so expensive (only 40 bucks above normal price).
@setezerocinco ah how much you pay in pounds do you know? was looking at ebay myself but all are asking for crazy money, then prob get hit by customs too
@Ryu_Niiyama Same, I would've loved to buy the Master Edition.
@whodatninja yeah me moving into a 3 bedroom house is going to make my game memorabilia hording issue so much worse. So many places to put statues.
@DarthFoxMcCloud Oh my bad
@zip was not a notification. I was on the page, but of course would be sold out very fast.
@SPG lol. I do not usually sell Zelda stuff, hehe. B]
@nintyfandavid about customs and shipping, they are calculated by ebay Global Shipping Program. I bought for this price, but not from this seller: http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Legend-of-Zelda-Breath-of-the-Wild-Special-Edition-Nintendo-Switch-/282356090485?hash=item41bdbc0675:g:SKcAAOSwfVpYnTMD
@setezerocinco hey man, you're the one who said you didn't really want the sword lol
@Ryu_Niiyama Ooh nice! It's no fun being a collector if you run out space. I can imagine you're literally swamped with collectables if live in a tiny space! Indeed, it's both a blessing and a curse
No SE for Wii U owners. Feels like Nintendo hates everything about Wii U including those who bought it.
