Update: Cyber Monday has ended now which means many deals have expired. So we have good news and bad news about the Zelda deal. The bad news is that Walmart has put the price up from $29 to $39 (opens in new tab), which is still cheaper than we're used to seeing it. So not the lowest-ever price anymore, but a deal we would have still snapped up last week as that's a very good price for the best game on the Switch that rarely drops in price all these years later. It's that damn good.  

Original story follows:

While shopping around for the best Cyber Monday deals this weekend, I found one of the best games of all time selling at its all-time low. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild usually sells for $60, but it's currently on sale for just $29. That's more than half off its usual price. If you haven't played this award-winning Nintendo Switch adventure there is no better time to pick it up. After all, the sequel releases next year and you should play through the original before that happens.

One of the most critically and user-acclaimed games from the last few years is at an extremely low price this holiday season. If you haven't played it yet, this is the perfect time to grab a copy before the sequel releases next year.

There are several Zelda games on Switch, however, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is by far the best one. It may have come out back in 2017, but it's left a lasting impression on developers and gamers alike. It won Game of the Year at the 2017 Game Awards and has received several other awards besides. What makes it so awesome is that it's an open-world adventure that allows players to go anywhere they want. Players can even head straight to the final boss shortly after starting the game if they want to, but there are so many exciting things to discover that you gladly go exploring instead. You can easily get lost for 60+ hours in this fantasy world.

Right now, Switch fans are patiently awaiting the release of the sequel, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which is set to launch on May 12, 2023. So if you haven't played through what is arguably the best game of this generation now is your chance to pick it up at a steeply discounted price before the direct sequel releases.
