I'm thankful that it's shrink-wrapped in a way. The shipping box and WE package had a strange smell to them.

Hey Everyone. For those that got in on the German WE, when you look at Amazon.de> My Account > My Orders, do you see "Discontinued Order" above the date you tried to complete the order? I never hit the cancel order button.

As far as I can tell, it's still scheduled to ship 1/31, but maybe something is lost in translation (using Chrome to auto-translate).

yeah i saw this to on my order but have no idea-what that actually means-

did they discontinue my order??--yet i have no emails saying so

or are they saying the product is now discontinued.

im just holding on to a little hope that the reg version is coming out on 1/31 earlier and the wizard ed will come out a few days later as it seems to be doing so everywhere else.

I saw the same thing and was freaking out... I think (I hope) it just means that you can't buy it anymore. I guess we will see if it ships tomorrow.

I don't speak German, but if you run that phrase through google translate and look at alternatives, it can also mean "Placed Order"

Workin on it

We saw this the day we ordered it (a few pages back) and determined that all it basically means is Order on Hold. So nothing to worry about.
Here's the quote from earlier in the thread:

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.

Everyone loves a good plushie! I was going to sell my drippy but he's just so funny in game I'm actually looking forward to getting the plush now.

EDIT: Just checked mine too. It's in the same boat... I will probably get nothing done at work until it actually ships.

I just can't wait to play this game. Can't decide whether to pick up this game at my local stores and then sell the German copy when it arrives or to just wait.

Mine shipped from Amazon Germany, should be here by 2/21, thank goodness.

What a crappy launch for an awesome game, I get to play the waiting game until then, I wouldn't dare disturb my backlog...

Mine Amazon.de shipped with a delivery estimate of the 20th. Now to get the steelbook coming from GameStop corporate as well as this mythical strategy guide promised by Bamco to all the messed up DR orders. Hopefully it all comes around the same time.

My UK order already shipped with the same 20th delivery estimate. Kind of weird because it had an original estimate of the 7th, but I think that might have been calculated based off of the original non delayed ship date.

I am just glad I am getting it at this point. Now if only I could get my promised strategy guide from Namco Bandai, but knowing them I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up to be another disaster.

Anyone know if any retailers ever carried this Wizard Ed?

I think this set will be available at lower prices once the hype goes away, much like the borderland chest thing that got close to the same asking price a while back

None did. Namco online exclusive. That's why it's so sought after.

You're normally right and prices bomb quite often after release but I dunno about that for the NA version of this at least. This is an RPG and I'm pretty sure it's more exclusive than the Loot Chest ever was. No way of knowing but I'd be pretty surprised if there were 53,000+ of these...

If I wasn't dumb and I had another US version I'd be holding onto it.

There was no where close to 50,000 of these produced. If we are talking about the NA version I would estimate 5k, but I could be wrong.

Now that the german and other EU versions are out can anyone confirm that text can be set to English? I saw a German WE unboxing that looked nice but the back mentioned only german text which I found a bit unsettling. The NA version has multiple language settings if I'm not mistaken.
