Just picked up my bundle. Now to stare at it. Maybe it's just the angle that the picture was taken at, but the box doesn't look as large as the one that was posted on the last page.

You can always grab a copy from the e-shop at a later date, even if this sells out and you can't find a retail copy anywhere.


In reference to the bundle, actually.

I felt bad that I walked in to my Gamestop today and canceled my Fire Emblem preorder, as I already grabbed a copy Monday from Target. The guy still gave me the preorder art book for free.

My GameStop store said yesterday they will be seeing more copies in a month or 2, but still. That isn't we will not stock it though.

Wow, picked up my bundle, but no fucking artbook. Dirtbag shit gamestop employees. I'm returning this shit and getting it online, as the only reason I even gave Gamestop my money was for that damn artbook. Jesus

I received my bundle from GS today. The artbook was nicer than I expected. Nothing outstanding but a nice bonus for paying MSRP.

Just picked up my bundle and art book from GameStop. Somehow missed that this one didn't include a charge cradle! (Though that does explain why the box seemed small.) Reckon I'll just keep the cradle from my original 3DS when I sell it.

I forgot to mention that. When my brother took that picture, I didn't know how big it was physically so I assumed that it was pretty big. When I got home, I was surprised to see this puny box.

I manage to pick up my 3DS bundle even though the weather out in NYC. Man, didn't expect the box to be so small. I though it was a joke. But happy to get the bundle and artbook.

Well, given there is no charge cradle and FE game card/box, it stands to reason it's going to be minimal packaging.

The only way to get this bundle and art book is from preordering, correct. I'm in NYC and wonder if its a waste of my time to see if they got any additional bundles in stock...

The place where I picked it up Broadway and 33rd were pretty adamant at not giving the artbook to anyone who didn't pre-ordered the game or bundle. However, I don't know how much did they had in regards to the 3DS bundle. They pulled my bundle from a closet, along with about 5-6 copies of the artbook.

But did you happen to preorder the bundle? or did you just go into store and make a regular purchase?

And do you already own a 3DS or 3DS XL? I own both so I'm not sure if I should buy a third even though it's a collector's edition kind of thing!

I finally got my copy today. The manager had an ordered list with every preorderer's name and number on it; I got my call earlier today. In and out with my game and artbook, no problems. He also said that his location got more artbooks than preorders for some reason.

I preordered it. Also, I already have a 3DS, but I'm a fan of the series so I had to get the bundle.

My vanilla copy still hasn't shipped.

Emailed customer support to ask about it, and got the generic response that I need to update my credit card.

Not that I actually ordered using a credit card, cause I have enough credit to cover it several times over.

That sucks for that guy. They should hold it longer than 3 days.

they did they held it for 4 :)

also managed to score a bundle and artbook even though i wasn't able to preorder, i just asked if they had any extras and they did so they gave me one,

also the store had 7 preorders so i guess if the store has a few preorders they might have an extra artbook or two just in case

I ordered two Bundles and got two art books. I will send you an art book if you still want it. PM me your address.

Just trying to help a guy out. I just recently got screwed by GameStop with Ni No Kuni. Ordered it many months ago and somehow they only got two steelbooks in and it went to the first two that happened to come in and get their copy on release day.

So, no Ni No Kuni steelbook for me :-(

Anyway, PM me if you want it. No shipping charge. I will eat the $1 or whatever it is.

Would you really? That'd be awesome! You definitely do deserve an award. Someone tell me how to do this. I would totally give you a steelbook, if only I had gotten one myself.

Anyway, you've been PM'd. And I will definitely return the favor in the future.

on Wednesday, I called the gs where I reserved a bundle. manager? told me they didn't get any - maybe Friday. I call today a bit after 12pm and a guy tells me they got the games and bundles in but when I asked about the artbook he said by Tuesday (he went to ask someone) which is when they will hold my bundle until as well.

A few hours later I read that the store did get artbooks so I call again. I believe the same guy picks up and tells me that there are only a few left. When I ask if they can hold it for me with my bundle he says no as there are too few artbooks for the bundle reserves - first come first serve.

So I get to the store about an hour later and find out that there are no more artbooks. The girl that rang me up asked the guy who I believe is the one I spoke with and he says there was only a couple.

The store across the street apparently didn't have any either.

Oh and the 3ds box is a bit beat up around the corners. The serial # sticker is also half-on the box as well.

Gonna stop going to this place as well. I had Ni No Kuni paid off in full since Nov and they didn't have enough steelbooks. When I went to pickup on Wednesday the guy tried to give me an opened copy as well. He gave me some bs how they sold out of sealed copies. Pretty sure some non-preorders got actual new games.
