If you don't mind that it's a 3DS and not a XL, then I strongly recommend you get it. While the picture of the Zelda 3DS looks nice, it looks a lot better when you hold it in your hand. As much as I hate glossy surface, in this case, it adds to the beauty and I suspect it's the same with the FE. It's not the same if it was matte.

As for why NoA doesn't bring over the Pokemon 3DS XL, I don't know but they are probably going to launch it with the new pokemon games.


I'd love if they did one for the XL that was like the Diamond/Pearl DS Lite they made. Or the DSi's for Black/White, I would buy one in a heartbeat

Guys help me out, does the GameStop pre-order charge you right away? I want to pre-order but won't have the funds till Friday for sure. I just want to secure a copy before it gets pulled or something.


No they charge you when the game ships if you pre order online. As for in store you pay it off when you pick it up.

I was hoping for that charizard one too but even that one was limited in japan had to win a raffle to even buy it. Pikachu one is still great but I'm not a fan of the color yellow but I wouldn't mind it since it's pokemon 3ds.

Have any of you ever not received something your preordered in-store? I preordered both a physical copy and the 3DS bundle a while back, and all of this talk of the site no longer accepting preorders makes me worry just a tiny bit.

I might have to hit something if I don't get my shiny blue 3DS.

I don't see it listed on the Nintendo 3DS website, do you?

Also a customer service rep from Nintendo confirmed it.

I don't see anything there about it being "only for the holidays" which is what I was asking about. Probably poor wording on my part about the question. I knew it was a limited release. ;)

If you have a receipt/invoice you should be good to go.

Just fail, apparently Nintendo underproduced the game or something. GS had to take down the pre-order for just the standard (And somehow not the system?)

Figures it'd happen the night before I was going to preorder

cause there's no physical game in the system.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Well I'm glad I pre-orderd the 3DS System with the game then. Is there any source to your claim by the way?

Oh wait. Amazon is now showing that there might be expected delays...

Ah I see.

Well if you think about it, are you willing to pay $40 for the game or $199 for the console with the game? I think more people would be more inclined to buy the game on its own than the console with the game.

According to what the guy just told me, it sounds like Nintendo just didnt expect this much demand for the game. He was cool and said that if they did get an extra, or pre-orders came back he would put my name down for it.

Also tried to pre-order at Best Buy, apparently they dont take pre-orders for it instore <_<. Now to decide whether to do an instore pickup for Best Buy, or wait and see what happens with GS.

I plan to pre-order the bundle w/ art-book today anyway, so I guess I'll just pre-order the physical copy at Best Buy. I can't believe pre-orders for this game actually sold out! That's awesome news to hear for what I believe will be an absolutely amazing game. Great and bad for Nintendo just because it sold out lol!

i would go ahead and preorder at bestbuy, if you really want the game. instead of taking chances

I was gonna wait and check again tomorrow when the usual guy is there to see if I can do an instore 5$ pre-order. Really didnt want to have to pay the 40$ now when I'm not even sure where I'm gonna buy yet. If not, then I'll trade something and just do Best Buy

I was able to preorder the game last Sunday, the clerk said I had ordered in plenty of time and would be getting one for sure. I guess the hardcore are looking for a good long game to play on the 3DS.

As far as the pikachu 3dsxl I am not really a fan since its white on the bottom and that will surely get filthy dirty with the matte finish. It would be good if I had an extra $200 to spend and didn't mind keeping it for collectibility only in the box but that kind of defeats the point of a gaming system. Overall though its not one I would want as a system to play games on and carry around.

I ended up just doing Best Buy instore pickup for now. Much better than nothing, and I can always cancel if the situation changes at GS
