For those who want to preorder from Amazon… no upfront costs and charged only when delivered.
Mod Note 17/6: Price dropped to $79.
Ah man, I still have my Zelda II cart.
Watched someone LP it the other week, no way I’d have managed it as a kid.
ironically i beat zelda 2 as a kid.. no way I could do that now !
I had so much free time.. and patience.. dont have either anymore LOL
Thanks OP might cancel the jb hifi order
Scalping begins in 3…2…1
This just reminds me of my OG Zelda Game and watch (boxed) that got stolen during our move some years back…. almost want to cry
Preordered!! finally!! was waiting for amazon to get it.
Me too, mainly because of the chance they dip the price a few dollars at some point like last time.
OMG its out of stock now wow!! so lucky :D
is this now sold out?
Yep. At least temporally from Amazon. Other retailers still have stock.
yep wow I was so lucky to get my order in yay!!
Glad I was refreshing ozb this morning waiting for it to show up haha
Thanks OP. Got one before all the scalpers got them. 👍
Ended up putting a preorder through EB Games as Amazon is sold out. Same price anyway.
pretty sure you have to pay for delievey on eb games and amazon is free expected delievery unless you went for pickup?
Click and collect, only live down the road from my local store so not to fussed about delivery
My nostalgic feelings are waning. Though bring me Donkey Kong, Pitfall and BoulderDash and all is forgiven.
I still have the an unopened Mario Game & watch so my collection is growing I am not going to open them ever but I hop the battery doesn't leak?
Lithium Battery don't tend to leak like alkaline, they do tend to swell up which can cause other acute issues, like cracked cases.
Long term swollen batteries (if it occurs) can also out gas / heat up or catch fire (depending on the quality of the battery / safety features.
Actual rate of this occurring I don't know, and would be hard to find.
Didn't everyone notice how produced over demand with the last one .
No quantity control anymore and same thing will happen here and easy got low $60's in the future .
And then when all those low $ are sold as they are no longer produced watch as price increases again. What do you think happens whenever a new console is released. Price of old games and consoles go down to clear them out then years later the demand for them increases and the limited number in new condition is available rise in price. How are the prices now on the NES classics or Vitas going?
That last one was on a epic scale never seem before .
Bit like LEGO I guess taking advantage of the situation .
as long as it goes up in Value thats all us collectors want :D
It wont. Check the prices of the Mario game and watch on ebay.
That varies depending on the seller. Plus Mario version can still be purchased officially from retailers. Generally price increases happen when the official sellers run out of stock, which now there is a limited number of since Nintendo is no longer manufacturing them since March.
Not now it won't. Come back in 10-25 years.
@RocketSwitch: I hope the battery doesn't leak lol.
@kungfuman: lol, I know right, my PSP battery exploded after 5 years of being dormant! You have to keep charging these things once every 6-12 months to avoid it.
If the Mario version history repeats, I won't preorder these toys and this time it didn't even mention limited right?
pretty sure these are limited qty they won't restock the mario one after this release.
Still other retailers with item.
yes but all the other retailers require you to pay either the full amount or a deposit where is amazon preorders requires no payment at all till its shipped. thats why those other places are still in stock.
I know. I was responding to a upset user who stated "OOS already!😞" and was letting them know that other retailer still have the item if they still wanted to get and was not fortunate enough to get one with Amazon. Better to pay a deposit or shipping fee than miss out entirely if you want one.
EB is legit $10. If you are worried about paying $10, then you should not be buying this.
@spuderump: nothing is always better than any money down :D
yeah stock was gone in like 5 min lol I was lucky to get my order in though.
Sweet, back in stock. Got it!!
I was able to pre order a few minutes ago.
Confirmed back in stock (for now anyway!)
Pre-order and wait 5 months for this!!!!
Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda – Coming November 12th!
Seeing as the Mario Game & Watch was sooooo limited NOT, I'll wait till I see this cheaper, not worth $79.95
Of course it's not worth $79.95. If you were a little tacker when Game&Watch was originally a thing, then these create a fuzzy feeling that is priceless! Heh.
The Mario one was I think $70 for while, Amazon had it for $60 but very briefly, I expect the same for this one.
At least with the pre-order guarantee if the price drops at any point Amazon would match it, worse case you keep track and cancel before they post.
Got it, quick quick quick
They are back in stock! got one for myself!
Got one with $10 off via the Amazon app. Not bad!
Got one. Thanks OP
ordered because, meh…. it was there.
what do i do once it arrives? never played this b4.
Just open it and start playing especially if you never played before :)
Thanks OP. Pre-ordered one.
Still in stock now!
"Adapter not included"
wtf is with this new trend
Save the world !!! Reduce …… apparently :(
Costs. Maximise profit.
I'm all for the charger not included, I would have at least 60 USB C, mini USB, micro USB cables in a bag. One less bit of waste sounds good to me
Still available, just ordered for $69 through the Amazon app.
Is it for first order through app only?
Yeah. One per customer.
$80 for 30-35 year old games….
That's pretty much Nintendo's business model. Remaster an old game for new console and charge full price for it and keep doing it for each new generation. They will probably remaster for the pro too and I doubt there will be many if any free pro updates for exisiting switch games. At least in this case you get some hardware for that $79 lol
… and a console.
Preordered just then, thanks! ($79)
Does anyone know if JB Hifi has a similar pre-order price guarantee like Amazon's?
Dont think so
