Update: Now out of stock.


Original (3/28): Amazon UK has just opened pre-orders for the Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition. You can reserve it here. If Amazon Germany and Amazon France are any indication, this will sell out pretty quickly.

Amazon UK has opened up pre-orders for the Fire Emblem Echoes amiibo. Alm and Ceclia are both up for grabs here. Unlike North America, the two figures are sold separately rather than a bundle.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild maintained strong positioning on the UK charts. As mentioned yesterday, it was the sixth best-selling individual game for the week of March 25, and the tenth best-seller on the all formats chart.

According to GamesIndustry, sales of Zelda experienced a 50 percent boost. The site attributes that to Switch stock, as “units begin to trickle their way back into retailers”.

By all accounts, Switch did well for its launch in the UK. The system reportedly sold 80,000 units during its opening weekend, which doubles up on Wii U. Switch may have sold even more if additional stock was available.

HMV head of technology and games Phil Browes told MCV that Switch’s launch was “fantastic”. He also said:

“We satisfied all pre-orders and blasted through the remainder of our initial allocation. Every single one of our pre-order customers received their console on launch day, and we’re optimistic that with some great games due to be released, Switch can establish itself as a successful third console in the market. We’re a bit tight [on stock] but we’re looking forward to more deliveries this week.”
