It appears Nintendo is hopping on the bandwagon of increasing game prices to $69.99, as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom pre-orders are now live with that price tag. But unless you absolutely want a physical version of the game, you don’t have to fork over $69.99 for the digital version.
As we announced earlier this month, the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers are back, and you can purchase two vouchers for $99.98 from the Nintendo eShop. Tears of the Kingdom, despite its $69.99 price tag, is confirmed to be game voucher eligible on Nintendo’s website. If you find deals on Nintendo eShop gift cards, you can purchase the two vouchers at a discount, further reducing the cost of the game.
The Collector’s Edition, which was revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct, will cost $129.99. In addition to the game, the Collector’s Edition includes a SteelBook, pin set, ICONART poster, and art book.
Other games that are now eligible for game vouchers include Pikmin 4 and Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp. Both those have a $59.99 retail price tag.
