Update 2 (2/12): On Amazon US, the Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide has been discounted by $16 (standard one is $10 off). Amazon Canada discounted the guide by $9 (standard one is about $4 off). If you already pre-ordered, you should automatically get the lower price.


Update: These guides are also up on Amazon Canada.


Original: Amazon is now taking pre-order for the Zelda: Breath of the Wild guides. They can be found here. Amazon has the Collector’s Edition and standard versions.

When the guides were announced awhile back, there were supposed to be three versions. We haven’t heard anything about a third version in recent weeks though, so there may only be just two in the end (collector’s and standard). If a third version does pop up, we’ll let you know.

With the amount of hype surrounding Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we should remember that Nintendo makes two kinds of Zelda games. We usually see new 3D titles on home consoles, while portables receive games that are more in line with the 2D entries.

Game Informer decided to ask Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma if Nintendo considered merging the Breath of the Wild team with the group that handled the 3DS Zeldas. Regarding that, Aonuma said:

“The dev pace is not really dependent on how many people are on a team, so combining them would not necessarily expedite the development pace. The 3DS team and the Wii U team have different approaches to game development, so I don’t necessarily want to combine them and have them think together, but rather have each think about what they can bring to Nintendo Switch from their own perspective.”

“The handheld development team will not be phased out because of Nintendo Switch. Switch will allow the users to bring their home console on the go, but this doesn’t mean handheld game development like Nintendo 3DS will be discontinued.”

Koei Tecmo held a live stream for Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13 with Power-up Kit earlier today and showed off the latest footage from the game. See the full recording below.
