If you're looking for the best The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD pre-order deals, we've got you covered. Our bargain-hunters have been busy finding the lowest prices on the upcoming Nintendo Switch game, not to mention those exclusive Joy-Con controllers that are launching alongside it this July 16.

Will there be different versions of the game to choose from? As things stand, no. Nintendo is only offering the 'normal' edition at this time for $59.99 in the US, £49.99 in the UK, and $68 in Australia. What's more, there are no pre-order bonuses that we can see (not even keyrings or stickers, as is usually the case). That may change when we get closer to launch, of course, but for now, the best The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD pre-order deals are the cheapest ones.

As a remaster of the Wii game from 2011 (now in HD), this Skyward Sword update revisits Link's journey as he charts sky-kingdoms and the dangerous world below in a bid to save his childhood friend Zelda. It also marks the origin of the iconic Master Sword. However, Skyward Sword HD doesn't emphasise motion control quite as much as its predecessor; this time it's an optional feature instead of a baked-in requirement.

Let's get to the deals, shall we?

Although it's possible that the best The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD pre-order deals will include cool extras upon release, that's not the case right now. As such, you've only got one version to choose from: the standard edition. 

However, we are getting special Joy-Cons featuring a Skyward Sword design. They're available at Amazon right now, and even though the price isn't listed, we suspect it'll weigh in at around $70.

Exclusive Switch games usually come with stickers or keyrings at the very least upon release, but UK pre-orders for Skyward Sword HD don't include any bonuses. That doesn't mean you should rule out cool pre-order incentives further down the line, though. The July release date is still a ways off. Basically, watch this space.

Want the special Skyward Sword Joy-Con pair, on the other hand? You'll need to visit Game, as that's the only site we've seen stocking it so far.

As usual, Australia gets the short end of the stick when it comes to pre-order deals - there isn't a lot of choice out there. At the time of writing, JB Hi-Fi has the best offer. The game is $69 there instead of $80.

JB Hi-Fi also has access to the special-edition Joy-Con pair. Featuring a Skyward Sword design, it retails at $119.

Accessories and extras

Can there any cool Skyward Sword accessories? Yes - but only one. The trusty Joy-Con controllers are getting a Legend of Zelda update, and these will probably sell out fast. If you want them, be sure to put a pre-order in before it's too late.

It's worth considering some other Nintendo Switch accessories as well. To begin with, picking up one of the best Nintendo Switch headsets will make your experience so much more immersive as you explore everything the game has to offer. A Nintendo Switch SD card is always handy if you're struggling for space on your console, too.
