Video games, like physical video games, don’t sell out too often. It was newsworthy that Nioh sold out online, but that was almost understandable given the surprise success of the game and the relative size of the publisher.
For The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s pre-orders to sell out at two of the biggest retailers ahead of launch? That’s sort of nuts. The game is sold out on Amazon and GameStop, arguably two of the largest retailers for gaming. Pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch version are listed as unavailable on both stores.
You can still pre-order the game at these stores
Pre-orders are still up at some shops, though release date delivery is questionable. If you definitely want the game at release, try calling your local stores before hitting the internet. Anecdotally, the GameStop near me wasn’t taking pre-orders anymore.
Here are a few online shops still offering the game for pre-order.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will launch for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U on March 3, 2017.
