Oh no, it’s happened again! Following on from Walmart selling The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening amiibo ahead of schedule, the US retail giant has now reportedly broken the street date for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition.
The Switch version is actually due out on 15th October in this particular region, but it seems one Reddit user has already got their hands on this epic adventure, as you can see in the image above. Here’s what this lucky customer had to say about it:
Got mine at a Wal-Mart in the PAC NW today. $49.94. Was stocked on the bottom of the display case with overstock. The rep seemed surprised to see it.
The receipt simply shows the game as “NSW GAME”. I’m not sure if that’s how Walmart tracks titles in their system, but it seemed rather bland.
As previously noted, this upcoming release includes the game box, game card, The Witcher Universe Compendium, a map and stickers. The game card will also include the two expansions – Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine – and 16 DLC items.
Walmart was also recently caught out last month for selling Switch Lite weeks before the official launch of the system.
