A deal doesn't always equate to cheap. Sometimes a deal is qualified by availability.

My thoughts exactly. I was playing for hours and hours and it just seemed to...suck. I kept complaining about stuff but my friends told me to at least go and do some of the guardian missions. I did the Zora/Mipha guardian and man I got hooked. I'm loving every moment of it now, even cooking lol

I love how they always announce those after everyone preordered the regular ones.

I see now how it works on the site, despite that it's a 'CHEAP deals' site... Anything that's 'Limited Edition' ... cheapness DOESN'T matter.

This isn't limited edition, but at 40% off, it's probably around the cheapest it will be until some time after release.... if you want one...

I'm curious how much more they can squeeze out of the Zelda franchise without their being more source material. The other three books were compilations of everything, and now a single book that only covers one game? Don't get me wrong, I'm probably a bigger Zelda fan than most. But I'm curious how much of this is recycled material from the other books. Let alone the what, 4 versions of the players guides?

I normally am a big fan of Zelda games, but didn't like Breath of the Wild all that much. I've bought the other 3 art books, but I'm not sure if I should get this one.

I feel the same way. I was worried about getting the same stuff from the other books.

The zora guardian mission was the first one I did too and holy crap I felt like I was 12 playing OOT again.

I explored, explored, and explored. Probably over 200 hours into the game with 95 shrines, 750 Korok seeds, tons of Savage Lynel weapons, etc. No divine beasts yet. The game does not feel like a traditional Zelda game to me, maybe for its different mechanics, real massive open world environment (no issues with that), and no official dungeons. Great game so far and one of the best, nonetheless!

Probably not a whole lot. I know the other books recycled material from each other with repeated material. This one covers one game that had 300+ people working on it. That's a lot of art and mechanics put into a game that's huge. There isn't a lot of variety in enemies, but it was a huge game in terms of land scale and areas.
