After what feels like a very long wait, Nintendo has announced a release date for the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new game will be titled The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and while it’s just been made available for pre-order, you can already get a discount on the much-anticipated title. Amazon AU’s slashed 17% off its pre-order price, and you can even get free shipping to NZ.

Amazon’s also discounted a bunch of products from Logitech this week, so if you’re needing to update your home office, it’s definitely worth a look. The highlights for us include a price cut on an ergonomic mouse and an excellent wireless keyboard, which we also rate as one of the best keyboards for programmers.

If you’re looking for a good running watch without the hefty price tag, you’ll also want to check out the discounted price on a Garmin Forerunner below. It’s been discounted by 50% at TheMarket, and comes with some neat smartwatch features along with plenty of fitness tracking functions.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 | NZ$834 NZ$799 on Secretlab (opens in new tab) (save NZ$35)

This is Secretlab’s latest gaming chair, and while NZ$35 off is only a small discount, it’s the most we’ve seen for a few months now. There’s lots of colour and fabric combinations currently available, and the chair itself is more customisable than Secretlab’s earlier offerings. With that said though, the Secretlab Titan 2020 (opens in new tab) is going for NZ$749 if you want to save some extra dosh.
