Japan - My Nintendo store selling game-less special edition of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

- My Nintendo store selling two special versions
- one version doesn't include the game
- costs 4,000 yen
- the version without the game includes a Link amiibo (Rider), map, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sound Selection CD, and a reversible cover

This game-less version is most likely for people buying the Wii U version, since there's no special edition option there. It could also be for people grabbing the digital version on Switch or Wii U, but still want some of the goodies.
