The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 Is Up For Preorder

The sequel to Breath of the Wild just popped up at Amazon and Best Buy, if you just can't wait to secure your order.


Nintendo closed its E3 2021 presentation with a fresh look at one of the most anticipated games in a long time: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's sequel. The new trailer showed off more of the game's setting, gameplay, and tone, and it also confirmed a release window for the game: 2022. Though a specific date hasn't been revealed, retailers clearly thought that was good enough for them to push their listings live, which means you can finally preorder Breath of the Wild's sequel right now.

As thrilling as it is to see the sequel pop up at stores as a real, physical thing you can actually buy, it's worth keeping in mind this game is still very far out--we don't even know if it's called Breath of the Wild 2. Right now, retailers have opened preorders for the game's standard edition, which is priced at $60 USD. The Breath of the Wild sequel is sure to have some kind of collector's edition, so if you're the type to hold out for a special edition like that, it's probably not worth snagging the standard edition just yet. But if the base game is all you want, you can secure your order today, if you'd like.

If you do decide to preorder Breath of the Wild 2 early, you won't be down $60 right away. Both Amazon and Best Buy charge when the item actually ships. For Best Buy, you may see a charge appear on your account, but it should drop off eventually. Amazon has a preorder price guarantee, so if the price drops between when you preorder and when the game ships, you'll be charged only the lowest amount. With Amazon's history of randomly discounting game preorders, that's not a bad reason to preorder Breath of the Wild 2 today. You can cancel your preorder at any time before the game ships.
