In the Nintendo Direct last week, along with the announcement of Skyward Sword HD‘s arrival to Switch, a pair of limited edition Zelda Joy-Con were also revealed and set to become available the day of the game’s launch. Yet less than a week later, GameStop and Best Buy have already sold out of pre-orders.

Best Buy lists that more stock will be “coming soon”, but any other details are unknown. Hopefully fans make up the bulk of the pre-orders, but it is likely that scalpers are at it again. Scalpers are already making profits off the McDonald’s Pokemon cards from the series’ 35th anniversary.

Hopefully, Nintendo will both provide more of these special edition Zelda Joy-Con as well as create a system to protect against scalpers. However, based on history, this seems unlikely.
