Yeah, I went ahead and grabbed one. I hope it is actually the UK version, where the box and manuals are in english as well, but if not no big deal, it's still worth it for the english wizards companion.

I've never ordered from any international Amazon before, to those that have, how is there packaging and shipping methods? Does service and packaging vary greatly from country to country, or do they all operate about as well as the US operation?

If I had to guess the voice acting will be japanese and english with a plethora of subtitles, probably english, japanese, french, german, etc.

Again, this is just guessing but there's no reason why they couldn't do it this way.




That's how they do games for Europe, generally. Just put everything on it at once. Cause there are like 500 languages over there and everyone knows 7 of them :lol:

Went ahead and ordered one. Not sure it is my wisest investment ever (since I plan to play the game).

I'm also assuming since it doesn't ship until 2/22 we can always cancel (just like Amazon US) if I decide to pass.

Still, order is ordered.
The battle's done, and we kind of won, so we sound our victory cheer

I think the only issue we would have here is if there is DLC. That can be region locked right? So you would have to make a french account to redeem it or something?

I'm assuming at this point in the game Amazon.fr is the only option? UK, Germany all sold out?

Thanks! I had originally held off on buying the US collectors edition because I only wanted the book and the game. But seeing that the book is going upwards of 250 on Ebay, it looks like this is the cheapest I will find it.

Why the hell are these offered on Amazon sites around the world, but the US only had access through DR? Ridiculous! In any case, thanks for the updates. I ordered the French version. The compendium is the main item I am interested in.

because it is not call of duty, most jrpgs have low demands in the US. Ni no kuni was an rare exception/case

Are you using a PO Box? I think they don't ship to those.

No. But I tried logging on and off and that made it work. Logging on first then adding to cart total was 128 usd

It's there indeed. But, wow. $127.xx shipped. I can't do it. Especially without it being as good as the US version. I'll continue to hold out hope that they reprint the US Wizards Edition, which I suppose there is little to no hope for, but oh well.

How does Amazon ship international? Do they use local postal from that country, or do they use UPS or Fed Ex with proper tracking?

When I ordered the Harry Potter Blu-ray collection from Amazon UK, it was shipped without tracking. I'm sure you can pay more for shipping and get tracking, but the cheap shipping was blind.

I'm pretty sure I read something official stating that they absolutely will NOT be doing a reprint. I'll have to poke around later to dig up the quote but I think it was part of their apology statement.

This is a case where a reprint would sell out as well (as long as they don't go hog wild), and earn them more money, and still the thing would sell for lots on ebay for those inclined do that. Of course I say that from the perspective of someone who didn't get one. LOL!

Yeah, they did offer express, but I'm in no rush. So as long as it shows up in one piece, I'm cool.

Good. I'll know if I'm getting my UK version by then and that gives the price time to drop. This is the same price as my UK version was when I preordered it but now it's only $80!


Wait what? IIRC, Amazon UK's price came out to be around $80 when there was a thread about it. In fact I think most UK retailers had it for around $80 after conversions (zavi included).

No idea how Amazon France is showing around $80 for you. Where are you having it shipped?

That's not what he's saying. He's saying he hopes in a month (when this ships) it'll be lowered to $80 by that point. He's not saying it's $80 now.

I think it was in the statement where they said that people would get the free guide. I believe they claimed they "can't" make more.
