  3. Wii U BOTW edition console: can the game be sold?

Hi all,

I'm thinking of picking up a used Wii U since they're cheap(er) now. A lot of listings on Craigslist advertise a BOTW edition console with the game pre-installed. I suspect it doesn't really work that way, but I wanted to be sure. If someone has already associated the pre-installed BOTW software with their Nintendo account, the software isn't transferable, is it? Or does the pre-installation of BOTW persist when formatting the system?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think a BotW edition exists

The game might be pre-installed but a special system does not exist to my knowledge
I like games and anime. My favorite games include the following: Mother 1-3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Cross, Zelda LA-ALttP-OoT-MM-ALBW, and Super Smash Bros.

And I don’t think Nintendo sold any preinstalled

So that's why I couldn't find any info about this. OK, thanks. I guess people think they can buy digital copies and then just sell them with the system.

There was definitely not a special BotW Wii U bundle console released by Nintendo. By the time BotW came out, most stores did not even have Wii U consoles in stock anymore.

It could be a Wind Waker console with that game installed, or BOTW could be installed via their NNID.

Thanks for the input, everyone. I’ll assume that I can only buy used games if they’re physical copies. No one on CL seems to understand that digital purchases are not transferable...
