Original Article (Wed 9th Sep, 2020 10:30 BST): Nintendo hasn't been shy about launching fancy deluxe editions of its games recently, especially when it comes to the Zelda series, and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the latest to be treated to a special day-one release.

Yes, following in the footsteps of Breath of the Wild's Limited Edition and the one that launched with Link's Awakening last year is the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity 'Treasure Box'. At the time of writing, it's only been confirmed for Japan, with pre-orders set to go live this Friday.

It'll be priced at 16,720 yen, as opposed to the standard physical edition's price of 7,920 yen, and will include a copy of the game, an acrylic art display, a paraglider blanket, and a metal charm. Those pre-orders can be found at Koei Tecmo's GameCity website, although no imagery has been provided just yet.

We're sure plenty of you would love to see something similar launch over here in the west, so we'll keep an eye out and update you if Nintendo reveals any similar products.
