thanks for the heads up! Was able to help a friend with this!

Quick question though, how is it that we (Americans) can order from Amazon Germany yet the UK version blocks American orders?

Thanks

Ummm it doesn't??? I buy from the UK amazon all the time.

It used to, but I think they've loosened the restrictions in the past year.

Ah, I was unaware of that. You'd be amazed at the prices you can find bluray collections. I got Harry Potter from over there and it uses the original name, Philosopher's stone. (Now i want to watch that.... great.)

My mistake. It blocked all of my video game based orders, yet blu rays were fine.

Hopefully, they did change it...

Decided to jump on this too so thanks a ton for all the info in thread everyone. Hopefully this thing actually ships. Everything in the US one seems arbritrary compared to the Wizard's Companion which is the only thing I wanted anyway.

My question is do you think the english voices are the same as the US? I can't imagine them bothering to do an entirely separate english language track.

Maybe this has been answered, but can the menus in the German version be switched to English along with the voice acting?

Thanks had to jump on the German edition after DR fucked me by charging and then canceling without refunding. I'm sure that if I didn't send them a nasty email, they would have never refunded. You guys are all lucky. I have to deal with DR on a monthly basis. They run Mattel's Matty Collector site, and the He-man Masters of the Universe collectors subscription service on Matty Collector.com, along the with DC/Watchmen/Batman/Ghostbusters ect. If you want any limited crap you gotta go through them and they been fucking collector's for years. I have to keep a detailed spreadsheet just to track the nefarious fckings they commit on my ass monthly.

Anyone got a link to buy from Amazon UK?

Not for sale any more/yet. There's rumor that it might go live again but who knows if that'll actually pan out. (After the DR mess I'll stick with the sure thing even if it is German.)

Thank you very much OP. I wasn't planning on buying the WE until I saw the prices other people are selling them for right now. I'm absolutely not going to turn around and sell this, but as a collector I knew I'd be kicking myself later on if this REALLY retained its value.

Everyone who got cancelled for the WE should jump on this. It may not be what we all want, but its close and frankly the book alone will probably be going for well over $100 on ebay after people open their wizard editions. If you don't preorder this one, don't complain later on. It might be your last chance.

Thanks a lot OP and everyone else for your help through the DR buttfucking of the WE restock buyers. Apparently it takes them a week to figure out they've written a check that their fucking asses can't cash. (reason DR cancelled: other)

Thanks again, I bought one for $109, zeig heil amazon germany!

Under Meine Bestellungen (My Orders), the NNK order says "AUFGEGEBENE BESTELLUNG", which translates to "Discontinued order".
Strangely, it also says "Not yet shipped ... Estimated ship date: 31 January 2013."

Dang it... I cancelled all the pre-orders I had on amazon.com. Does anyone still have an open pre-order? I'm curious what it says in that same spot on the english site. (Just to see if this is truly backlogged or if that's just a bad translation)

For those waiting for the UK version to come back in stock on amazon.uk, apparently zavi is starting to cancel orders. Who knows if amazon.uk oversold or will get any more to sell now.

After reading the forum on amazom.uk, they already received their restock on the 23rd.

Just as a note I made a preorder and cancelled it for Dead Space 3 on amazon.de and it also says the same thing AUFGEGEBENE BESTELLUNG. So this might be what is on there for preorders.

I have games (not Ni No Kuni, but Crysis 3 and Sim City) pre-ordered on the U.S. Amazon site, and in that same slot it says "Order Placed", which may badly translate to "Discontinued Order" in German.

This is my guess. Cause back-ordered/discontinued orders on amazon.com look the same just just have extra info on the expected shipping date.

What aside from the box is in German? Anything? US DLC (if any) won't work, right?

I should have bought the US version when I had the chance, but I couldn't pull the trigger then. Now, of course, I want it. :( But I'm not sure I want to deal with making a Euro account and such. Plus I'm still a little worried some of this will be in German or might not work on a US PS3. Do we know for certain that the game is in English and is not region locked?

Also, what's the shipping on this to the US? It's rather larger than the Harry Potter collection BR I bought from the UK.

It was ~$108 Shipped.

Yeah, I just stumbled through the process (can't read a damn thing LOL!) and my total would be $109.12 (3 Euro shipping). So tempting. Might be kind of cool to have the German box. I just need to know for sure that the book and everything else is in English, and that the game will work on a US PS3.

As a rule all PS3 games are region free except for a few exceptions like P4 Arena. So a quick google search should get you your answer quickly.
