Be Canadian and get a Phantom Hourglass from Best Buy

If you are Canadian and have a thing for ancient methods of timekeeping, then Best Buy’s exclusive offer might be right up your alley. To celebrate the release of the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass on Nintendo DS, Canadian Best Buy outlets are offering a free hourglass with every purchase of the game.

What use you may have for an hourglass is beyond me, but Zelda fans are sure to want it because it’s Zelda. It’s an exclusively in-store offer as well, so you’ll just need to be in Canada to snap it up, sorry.

Those of us outside of Canada get nothing but scorn and a lump of coal with our Phantom Hourglass purchases. Possibly a slap as well, if you’re very very lucky. Hit the jump for the full declaration from Nintendo.
