HAHA. googled the bundle and found that Walmart has it in stock for store pick up or Fedex pickup.

Walmart

This is probably the last store to be able to pick it up easily without having to call around or drive around to find one.

UPDATE: IGN has confirmed the Bundle will be priced at $200 it also will come with a 4gb SD card with the game pre installed.

Now available at gamestop for pre order:
http://www.gamestop....g-bundle/107660
Available for pre-order @ newegg.com right now, but you have to pay $8.xx for shipping. Free Shipping now.
http://www.newegg.co....82E16868100134
ToysRus are selling the bundle.

No details yet because it was just leaked on NeoGAF, but I'll make the thread Wikified so that once information starts pouring through, people can edit the thread accordingly.

Fire Emblem is a pre-installed digital copy.

Adding a second image to confirm.

Second image is a bit misleading. The bundled system is NOT a 3DS XL like Nintendo is advertising at the top of the Game Informer page. It's just a regular 3DS.

Get it and then keep it sealed. Store in closet for eons, then sell on eBay.

According to a few sources, that bundle is not currently slated for the USA.

Honestly, if this is true, I'll be sorely tempted to buy it just because it's Fire Emblem-related. Doesn't matter that I already have both a 3DS and 3DS XL.

...have I made it clear how much I love the series yet?

With the message at the bottom in English, I'm inclined to believe it is. I mean, I'm sure Europe is a possibility, but really?

I don't really care about this bundle very much so I wasn't going to go into details but since you asked-

http://www.gonintend...story&id=194059

As you can see the supposed ad that picture given as proof was supposed to be on a Game Informer magazine, and the thread I linked previously from a very dedicated Fire Emblem fansite confirmed that there was no such ad in the magazine issue in question.

I'm trying to spare some people from getting their hopes up just to get them crushed but hey, believe what you wish.

Of course. They didn't stop producing the DSi when the DSiXL came out, why would they stop producing the 3DS?

That person on Serene's Forest provided no proof, and the NeoGAF thread is still going strong. NeoGAF has a strict filtering system as to who becomes a member. I can sign up right now on Serene's Forest and start posting BS.

Ugh, if it were an XL I'd buy in a heartbeat. But I just cant go back to that small screen, no matter how badly I want.

Does this have a logo or something etched into it?

Edit:

I see the bigger picture now - looks nice!

Yes, the poster has had an account there since 2001 so I'm sure he's just fake debunking a rumor for giggles.

Like I said, believe whatever you wish(makes no difference to me) but I would recommend to others to have a healthy dose of skepticism until the actual bundles start showing up on repeatable retailers for sale.

Personally, I'm glad it's not on a 3DS XL. I bought one during the $160 sale, and I'd have been pretty upset if a limited edition, Fire Emblem themed XL came out a couple of months after that.

#23 Wario64  

Posted 10 January 2013 - 10:33 PM

As someone who doesn't have a 3DS of any kind, not bundling a XL means I'll just skip over this. Though honestly, I prob wouldn't have bought it anyway but at the right price + XL, I would definitely do a double take

Oh shi, I'm going to get this. I was upset that the bundled Flame Red 3DS with Super Mario 3D Land didn't look any different than the old one, so I'll be getting this just to get something a bit unique.

As long as it's at Best Buy, I should be able to get it cheap. I got a lot of reward points there.

Not me. I'd have just bought the FE LE bundle and sold the MK7 one from BB.

Now that I think about it, I'm just gonna buy it. Let's hope an official announcement comes soon on retailers. Prefer BB.

Don't they have to do this soon since FE comes out in 3 weeks?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I'm preordering this once it goes up on Amazon. I was hoping this would come to the US but I really didn't think it would. Wish it was an XL though.

It's a handheld Nintendo product. It can't be "badass".

Well if we do get it, I might trade in my DS Lite toward it.....I'd still have to decide though. Not sure how much use it would be having 2 3DS's. Especially since you cant share downloads

I'd really prefer to just save for that beautiful Soul Sacrifice Vita

Have you been in a coma for the last year? Amazon doesn't sell Nintendo hardware anymore due to a dispute. The listings you see on Amazon for the 3DS and 3DSXL are all third party.

Amazon doesn't sell nintendo consoles as a first party anymore so I doubt you'll be able to preorder.
