Nintendo of Europe has announced that not only are preorders now open for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on Nintendo Switch, but if you do fancy buying it in advance from the European eShop you'll get double the usual Gold Points to spend however you wish (within reason).

NOE has the tweetails:

If you want to take advantage of this offer you'll have a strangely long time to do so, as it appears the offer expires on the 22nd September, which is two days after the game releases. We're not sure if this is a mistake or not, as we can't really be sure how you can preorder a game after its release, but who are we to judge?

Also just to be clear, it seems that this bonus is exclusive to digital download preorders, and we do not believe it will be applicable to physical purchases, although the limited edition still looks at least €6 worth of lovely.

Will you be pocketing the extra €6 worth of Gold Points? Give us a shout in the comments either way.
