With Switch-mageddon less than a week away, you may want to keep a close eye on your preorders, as users on Reddit and Twitter have reported that Amazon is cancelling almost 1200 preorders for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Edition. These users have received emails stating that the “supplier” cannot meet demand, and Amazon is giving out a $10 gift card to those affected. The regular version of the game is still available here if you have not preordered it yet, but watch your inbox if you preordered the exclusive version that comes with a Nintendo Switch case, artbook, and Master Sword statue.

Below is the email that people have received from Amazon:


We’re contacting you about order #XXXXXX for the following item(s):

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Edition – Nintendo Switch

We’re unable to fulfill your order for the item(s) listed above because they aren’t available from the supplier any longer. As a result, we’ve cancelled them from your order and your original payment method won’t be charged.

We’re sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this may have caused. To help make up for the inconvenience, we’ve applied a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card to your account. This amount will be applied to your next eligible order automatically without entering a claim code.

We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon.
