Same here....its not even in "shipping soon"

Its gonna be weeks before I get it me fears...but to be honest, they had the shipping delay message when I ordered it. Its not Amazon's fault nintendo didn't make enough copies


Hell I just want to be sure I get a copy. I would like to be sure Amazon will get them in stock.

I thought Fry's was going to carry this for $29.99?


Believe that was a pre-order deal around a month ago.

How many people that already own a 3ds and 3ds XL are buying this bundle?

I have both a 3DS and 3DS XL but wondering if I should pick up this bundle? That would make this my third 3DS... Don't know if I need 3 but it's the collector in me that wants this. I haven't even played the demo yet!!!


I have a black 3DS and am picking up the bundle. I've been wanting the Fire Emblem 3DS since I saw the pics of it when it was released for Japan. I'm a huger FE fan and love the look of the FE 3DS. I'll probably trade in my black 3DS after a system transfer.

Unfortunately it's full price at Fry's. I just picked up a copy at the Campbell, CA location.

FYI, they had plenty, so the other Bay Area locations probably have it in stock, too.

It should be easy to get game now at Best Buy stores at least in NYC. I just picked 2 at my local Best Buy and they had about 8 copies there. I would guess about 80% stores around me said have stock according to the inventory tracker.

Just received a call from the Gamestop I preordered just the game at - looks like it's in. I'll be selling this copy to my brother, since I was impatient and got a copy at Best Buy yesterday.

Still no 3DS bundle yet, though. Weird.

Walked into a Best Buy and picked it up -- of note, they weren't out on the shelf. I had to ask the.."Gaming Specialist" and he pulled a copy from below/behind the register.

Preordered the 3DS bundle back in the beginning of January. Just called GS and they told me that all GS had shipping problems with the bundles and that they all got delayed until this Friday, Feb 8.

Not sure if this applies to all GS nationwide but at least for Odessa, Texas it does.

GameStop is sad when it comes to stocking video games, I guess they rely on used sales for everything, but this isn't unusual as this has been going on for years at GS. Aka only stocking enough games for preorders and then never getting other new copies in, while expecting customers to buy the used one, if there is one. But for a gaming specialty retailer I expect more. Meanwhile you can go to Target or BB and find plenty of copies of whatever game you want on the shelves. My target had one copy today, I expect it will be gone soon.

Was able to grab a copy at Best Buy. As far as GameStop I've had this issue with a few other DS games I wanted. They just choose not to carry them because they were too niche I guess.

You guys are lucky. I think we here in Hawaii got the short end of the stick as usual. I went to one of the local game stores and the manager told me that he wasn't expecting shipments of the game to come in until Friday if they're lucky. He himself went to Wal-Mart in the morning but it wasn't there. Some guys who left the store just as I walked in were also hunting for Fire Emblem too and told him that Toys R Us didn't even have it. I went to Best Buy myself to pick up Blu-rays and it wasn't there either. (I didn't even bother with Target. The ones here don't even have well-known movie titles in-stock on release day.) At this rate, I'm just going to be a CAG and wait until it goes on sale for the eventual B2G1.

I bought my copy online at BestBuy.com and then I got the e-mail that it was in the store ready to be picked up. Went after work and waited for 20 minutes while they tried to find a copy. After all is said and done I got the order cancelled and refunded. Complete bummer and I can attest to Best Buy selling copies that are supposed to be held / Best Buy being robbed. I really wanted the physical copy, but hard to resist just easily downloading it and playing now...

Hoping Amazon gets theirs. I mean if not I am pretty much fucked, unless I preorder one at newegg.

It fucking pisses me off that Nintendo is pulling this shit. I refuse to buy a downloadable copy of ANY JRPG unless it's on PC and well there are no boxed copies for PC.

If Best Buy and Gamestop are getting in their stock, I'm hopeful that means Amazon isn't too far behind No in-store deals and an extra $3.60 to pay in sales tax over here if I buy in-store makes me favor waiting for Amazon.

Amazon hits me for sales tax which sucks but I have Prime. My problem is I wont be able to hit any store until Saturday because the route I take to and from work doesn't hit any stores besides supermarkets, gas stations and dunkin donuts, lol. So I am counting on Amazon to pull through. I just wish Amazon would say yes, we are getting stock in as a confirmation for me, and not have me wondering if it will get canceled.

Normally I'd agree with you, but I think, at least in this one specific instance, Nintendo is the one that made a mistake.

From what I've heard, Gamestop pretty much blew through their allotment from Nintendo on preorders alone. Based on the numbers other stores are getting, there is pretty much zero chance they could have gotten more this week.

It sounds like Nintendo seriously underestimated demand, and if the game is still out of stock 2-3 weeks from now, that will pretty much confirm it.
