Sure it's August today, but tomorrow it's September and the start of the slow, depressing descent into the long dark and cold of winter.

On a lighter note - here are some Zelda Christmas jumpers:

The two designs are the latest in a line of gaming-themed Christmas jumpers - we liked the Street Fighter one widely available last year.

Both are available to pre-order now from Merchoid for delivery in mid-November just as it starts to get properly cold. Each costs Ł40.

"The best way to wish someone Happy Hyrule-idays," the item's description reads. "Perfect to cheer up any Zelda fan disappointed Breath of the Wild won't be under this year's Christmas tree."

Nintendo delayed the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild at the same time as it announced the fact that NX would arrive in March 2017 (the game is coming to both Wii U and NX). The adventure is already looking spectacular, however, as we found out when we went hands-on multiple times back at E3.

And hey, it's still cold in March. You can wear your jumper again when you finally play it then.
