Nintendo Unveils 'Zelda: Breath Of The Wild' Explorer's Edition, Link Green 2DS Bundles For Black Friday 2017
Nintendo has taken the wraps off the new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Explorer's Edition and a 2DS "Link Edition" for Black Friday 2017.
The first of the two is just the thing for Switch owners who haven't picked up the latest Legend of Zelda title, while the second is perfect for those who want a snazzy-looking 2DS clad in Link's iconic colors of green and yellow (bright orange?).
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Explorer's Edition
Breath of the Wild is the Switch's best-selling title so far, and that means a ton of people already own a copy. Aside from those who haven't gotten ahold of one yet, fans who already have will still get something out of the Explorer's Edition (pictured above), particularly the other goodies the bundle has in store.
That said, it comes with a 100-page guide book dubbed the Explorer's Guide and a two-sided map called the Explorer's Map that's not just for show but also to aid beginners in finding their way around Hyrule, fitting for the package's name.
To be clear, it doesn't bring any in-game content to the table. In other words, it doesn't come with the $19.99 expansion pass or any of the DLCs The Master Trials and The Champions' Ballad, which can't be bought separately.
Now the Explorer's Edition will be available for $59.99 starting on Nov. 23, and since the original game costs the same, the Explorer's Guide and Explorer's Map are essentially free of charge.
Link Green 2DS
With a straightforward name, the Link green 2DS isn't hard to imagine — it's a green 2DS with bright orange buttons.
The best part is, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is preinstalled on it, giving fans a chance to relive the classic title or gamers who haven't taken it out for a spin an opportunity to experience arguably one of the best Legend of Zelda games out there.
It will retail for only $79.99 on Nov. 23, making it an affordable way to get into or get back into the series.
