Nintendo will, of course, also offer the game digitally through its eShop, which has the added benefit of preloading. Fans wanting to play the game as soon as possible should probably go this route when it’s available as they will be able to pre-load the game before its release date.

Will Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 have a collector’s edition?
At the time of writing, there hasn’t been any official information about a collector’s edition. However, based on all previous Zelda titles, it’s almost certain Breath of the Wild 2 will have a snazzy limited edition.
Fans looking to score the CE version should keep their eyes peeled. Once it’s announced, stores will more than likely take pre-orders for the special edition – and they will no doubt sell out fast!
