GameStop to give away Zelda posters on Nintendo Direct day, and they expect huge influx of customers

The GameStop chain of stores will distribute posters of Zelda on Nintendo Direct day and prepare reinforcements in the store, heralding announcements related to the 35th anniversary of the saga … and the arrival of customers in droves.

Nobody is aware that we are in the 35th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, although Nintendo has not yet ruled on it … beyond confirming The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD for this July. The Nintendo Direct presentation of E3 2021 will take place next week, and it is logical to assume that Zelda will have a presence at the show.

Yesterday, YouTuber Spawn Wave said that he had been hearing things about some kind of event at GameStop next week, which could be related to Zelda. Well-known journalist Jeff Grubb shared the tweet and said that he, too, had been hearing things, and apparently, GameStop expects a wave of users on June 15, the day of the Nintendo Direct.

Today, Spawn Wave has explained it in a new video. Nintendo has prepared new units of Nintendo Switch to put on sale on Nintendo Direct day, and apparently, everyone who takes the console will also get a poster of Zelda. But it will not be the only company that will put new units of the console to take advantage of the pull of E3: there will also be new units of Xbox Series X / S (whose conference, Microsoft, is on Sunday 13).

Images of the poster have appeared online, and show art of Link, in his classic pose from Ocarina of Time (although we could swear it is a new render with much more detail). Behind him, images of all their games (Wind Waker, Ocarina, Majora’s, Twilight Princess, Breath of the Wild …) in a design very, very similar to the one they used with the 30th-anniversary arts in 2016. No images of Breath of the Wild 2 on the poster, or anything that is not already known.

Finally, there is another sign that points to this event on GameStop. According to a calendar given to the workers, June 15 and 16 are designated as “Special Event”, with plans for greater reinforcement in the stores, something that only occurs on days when there are very special launches and a new stock of consoles. highly demanded.

GameStop’s exact plans are unknown, and of course, Nintendo’s plans at E3 are unknown, but it’s logical to assume that Zelda will have a special presence. Even if Breath of the Wild 2 were not shown, the much-rumored Switch versions of Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD, along with a compilation of the classic Zeldas in the Super Mario 3D All-Stars style, could take up much of the Nintendo catalog. this year.

However, if this information is true, it seems that GameStop is preparing for a very intense demand on June 15 and 16, which in addition to coinciding with Nintendo Direct day and the day after, includes the presence of a special commemorative poster of the Zelda saga as part of its promotion.
