Pre-ordering The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom at GameStop will give you wood

GameStop says you get a little bit of wood when you pre-order The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It is currently the only retailer to offer this wooden collector’s plaque for people who pre-order while supplies last, and for people who come to buy it on launch day. To get the plaque you need to go to a store and show your proof of purchase.

There’s currently no information on the finish or stain (fingers crossed for Wenge or Purpleheart), but GameStop has noted that the color and grain of the wood can vary. Still, I think it would be fun if you like collectibles!

The standard edition of the highly anticipated sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild could be preordered for $69.99and Best Buy has a listing for the elusive deluxe edition for $129.99. The deluxe edition comes with a Steelbook case, a collectible pin set and an art book, but unfortunately no wood.
