An excerpt of today’s Nintendo Treehouse livestream, focusing on the Master Edition and Special Edition of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is easily the biggest game in the Nintendo Switch launch lineup, and Nintendo is making it feel special with two limited-edition bundles: the Special Edition and the Master Edition. Reggie Fils-Aime, the president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, appeared on today’s Nintendo Treehouse livestream to show off both packages, and you can check them out below.

The Master Edition, which will cost $129.99, includes a physical copy of the game as well as a Sheikah Slate carrying case for the Switch, a Sheikah Eye collectible coin, a “Relic of Hyrule: Calamity Ganon” tapestry (with a map on the other side) and a 24-track soundtrack CD called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sound Selection. But the star of the package is a statue of the Master Sword.

Breath of the Wild’s Special Edition, which will cost $99.99, will come with everything in the Master Edition except the sword statue. Both packages will likely be hard to find. Fils-Aime said the Master Edition will be “extremely limited in quantity,” adding that “when it’s gone, it’s gone.” The Special Edition “will have a little bit more quantity, but again, also limited,” said Fils-Aime.

Indeed, while Amazon and GameStop have listings for both the Master Edition (Amazon, GameStop) and Special Edition (Amazon, GameStop), Amazon sold out of its allocation of both versions last night. GameStop sold out of the Master Edition, but still has the Special Edition available at the moment. (Update: The Master Edition and Special Edition are now up for pre-order at Best Buy.)

Either way, you can get some close-up shots of the Master Edition from the Nintendo Treehouse livestream below. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be released March 3, simultaneously on Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
