It's been quite a wait, but The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is almost upon us. Six years after Breath of the Wild, Nintendo is finally blessing us with an entirely new mainline Zelda game.

But with the good news, there's bad. Tears of the Kingdom is the first party Nintendo Switch title to be priced above $79.95 for the standard edition. You'll pay $89.95 for Link's latest adventure at retail price. 

Of course, there are still plenty of great pre-order offers to had, so here's a look at the best deals around right now.

Buy The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom with game vouchers

If you'd prefer to buy a digital copy of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, there's still a way to save money. 

To get the best price on Tears of the Kingdom from the Nintendo eShop, you need to be a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber. If you haven't tried before, you can a week-long free trial. 

Alternatively, an individual membership will set you back $11.95 for 30 days or $29.95 for a year.

Once you're a member, you can buy Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers on the eShop for $134.95. These vouchers can then be redeemed for two different games, bringing down the effective cost of each game to just under $68. 

That's not a bad saving when compared to the $89.95 price you'd normally pay on the eShop. 

Of course, for the Game Vouchers to be a good deal, you need to go in with the intent of buying a second game. The good news is the vouchers have a one-year expiry, so you don't need to use the second voucher immediately.
