Now is the perfect time to get one’s hand on several Nintendo exclusives, as Amazon is now holding a sale on a few Donkey Kong, Mario, and Zelda games such as The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. These high-profile games don’t go on sale often, so fans wouldn’t want to miss this sale.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild features Link in an open-world setting, waking up after years of deep slumber with very few memories, traveling to various locations to beat Calamity Ganon, explore the expansive lands of Hyrule, and try to recall his past along the way.
The game doesn’t require too much hand-holding as players solve puzzles and finish quests. In this way, the game takes on a unique gameplay approach compared to other games in the Zelda franchise, and that is one of the main reasons why Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is the franchise’s bestseller. Back in 2018, the game was Nintendo’s third best-selling Switch exclusive, with over 9 million copies sold.
Amazon’s ongoing sale puts a $20 discount on Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, bringing the price from $60 to $40. It is worth mentioning that the sale only affects the physical Nintendo Switch version of the game, not the digital copy.
The sale also does not apply to any of the title’s special edition packs. To be able to avail of the discount, players need to have an Amazon Prime membership. Below is the full list of Nintendo Switch exclusives currently available on Amazon:
- Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze($44.99)
- Luigi’s Mansion 3($44.99)
- New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe($44.99)
- Super Mario Party($39.99)
- Super Mario Maker 2($39.99)
- Super Mario Odyssey($39.99)
- The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening($44.99)
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild($39.99)
The Nintendo eShop does not frequently put discounts on its first-party games, so it’s best for wise shoppers to always compare prices from sellers such as GameStop, Best Buy, and Amazon. Regardless, it’s a great idea to always keep an eye on Amazon for video game discounts across all consoles.
In October 2020, Prime Day featured a similar Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild sale, as well as sales on other PC, PlayStation, and Xbox titles. In addition, subscribing to Amazon Prime will allow players to access Prime Gaming deals on PC games and tons of in-game content, so multiplatform player s can really get the most out of their money by watching Amazon sales.
