Shut up and take my rupees!

Forget free two-day shipping. This is the number one reason any gamer should become a Prime member.

If The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild left you, well, breathless, you’ll be pleased to know that you can save 20 percent on the game by pre-ordering it. The retail price is $59.99, but you can get it for $47.99, thanks to a major Amazon Prime perk.


Prime members get 20 percent off select pre-orders and newly released games. In addition to the latest Zelda title, upcoming popular games like Pokemon Sun and Moon, No Man’s Sky, and South Park: The Fractured but Whole Remote Control Coon Mobile are also 20 percent off when pre-ordered.

Though there is a 30-day free trial for Prime, you’ll still need to be a Prime member come Dec. 30, when The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to release in order for the deal to apply.

In the event the price lowers even more before the game releases, your price will reflect the best possible deal. (Though the more popular Wii U games, don’t typically fall to $50 for weeks or months.) The 20 percent deal only applies to the list price, not any additional discounts.

So, if you’re already a Prime member, this is a no-brainer for Nintendo fans. If you’ve been thinking about joining, and purchase games regularly, chances are you will make back the $99 annual fee with the additional savings. Start smashing every clay pot in sight, and pre-order it here.
