The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is currently at the lowest price we’ve ever known it to be sold for (at least for new, physical editions). Right now, it’s available for $39.99 USD ($20 off) on Best Buy and for a first-party Nintendo game, a 33% discount is a pretty rare thing indeed.

Of course, the game is now five years old, and many Nintendo fans will have added this to their collection long ago, but we know that there are lots of people out there who might not have been a Switch owner for long, and still have some gaps in their collection when its earlier releases. If you’ve not yet played it, you owe it to yourself to give Breath of the Wild a try as it is genuinely one of the best Nintendo games ever made.

Now that we know what the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom release date is going to be, many fans are no doubt thinking that they ought to get up to date on the original. Though it’s very different from the other best Zelda games, it still gives you an huge, enchanting world to explore that’s populated with Gorons, Zora, Gerudo, and the like. It takes the franchise in a whole new direction, while never failing to capture that same magical essence that has run through every game since the first.

Unfortunately, if you’re in the UK, you’re out of luck, because we’ve only been able to find this deal in the US. Readers in the States should make sure that they act quickly to avoid this deal slipping through their fingers too, as there is no indication of how long it’s going to stay up for, though as a Black Friday deal, it’s doubtful it will survive the weekend.
