Ha, Well thanks for that advice... truthfully I've never pre-ordered/used amazon before and this is my first purchase off of there, and i didn't know what to expect from a cancellation of a pre-order, and on top of that i wasn't too sure what i wanted to order then or even now as a filler item- though i see your logic in might as well get something for the same cost than nothing.....


get some scotch tape :D

How many do you think they sold? 500 Maybe that's where B&N's stock went.


I don't know because boxes of them were being brought from the stockroom as needed. They still had quite a few when I left at close to 9PM and they were limiting purchases to one copy of each edition per customer. A lot of people on the line did not even know about the LE, much less wanted to pay double ($70) for it! However, many people did buy it once they saw it.

I heard that this advance sale was only tonight and NWS will not be able to sell the rest of their stock until the official release date. Perhaps you can call the store to verify?

ugh... I really hate reading this thread. I saw the limited edition up for preorder on Amazon and thought "huh, that looks pretty cool. I need to preorder that." Then later that day I find out they're limited to 4,000. Pounded on the keys to pull the site back up only to find out they were gone... like dust in the wind.

Moral of the story... always, ALWAYS preorder asap... you can always cancel.

If I were going to resell I'd wait until the bulk of resellers sold them and then the market thinned. Even as much as it's selling for I couldn't see myself letting go of it.

Whoo! My FLGS has confirmed that my copy of the limited edition is on the invoice for this week. While I'm not getting it at the sweet discount that it was up on Amazon for, I am getting it.

I logged into my TFAW account and saw a message saying they changed the limit to 1 per customer (from the original 2). My order still looks right but we'll see if anything changes in the next week.

Both my regular and LE are still listed as "Not Yet Shipped". I expect that since the LE release is still like a month away. I have regular shipping for the regular one so that is probably why it isn't shipped/shipping soon. Still waiting for the Ni No Kuni guide I ordered to be shipped off as well.

Just hoping the LE will come early, so I can stop worrying about it. :-P

And my NNK guide also changed to ship soon. Both are 2 day.

Amazon has the LE listed as releasing Feb. 12th. So a little over half a month.

Slightly related, but TFAW used to have the LE listed as releasing on Feb 12th, but has at some point changed it to the same release date as the regular edition (Jan. 29th).

It has begun...

The extra goodies don't appear to be anything special...


I'd love that sword bookmark, in all honesty.

I hope I get this. I've become very paranoid about getting screwed with limited items ever since getting screwed out of The Sky (the real one)... which is now selling for $600. And I already had by B&N pre-order cancelled (and my Amazon UK order cancelled, though that was expected).

EDIT* There's quite a few copies on eBay already, and they're of people who already have it on hand. How did people already get this?

Nintendo world store had a event on friday and sold some early. Notice some of those listings are from comic dealers, there supposed to sell the book for retail.

Heads up to anyone in the NY area. I just hit up Nintendo World and managed to pick up a copy of the limited edition with all the goodies. Apparently, employees spoke to some Nintendo reps and managed to get the ok to sell early because of demand. As of now I only see 20 copies ( roughly) not sure if they have more in the back.

$200 seems to be the lowest this is selling for on ebay. I'de pay $100 max for one which I don't see them going that low.

I'm guessing they won't be selling any books today, as the OFFICIAL release is on Tuesday and yesterday was just a special pre-release event. That's what it says on the website, anyway.

Nintendo World Events
The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia Event

Join us in an epic adventure January 25th from 6pm to 8pm as we celebrate the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia. This amazing hardcover containing an unparalleled collection of historical information on The Legend of Zelda franchise will be available for sale during event hours only. Published in both standard and limited edition formats, Nintendo World is the only location in North America to have the limited edition available for purchase, as part of this special pre-release event. Pre-orders are still available on a first come first serve basis. There will also be a costume contest and other activities for all to enjoy. Join us for this special quest that no Zelda fan can miss! The official launch date for the book is January 29th for those unable to attend the event.

You could probably call them and ask them if they still have any LE's, 646-459-0800

Well, never mind my reasoning. I guess they're selling them early.

Haha. Yea. I have a job that pays well (self employed) so I'm not in the business to flip. It just feels wrong. I think that karma has served me well since I've been able to buy other precious collector items (skyward, ni no kuna wizard, Zelda Historia, etc)

I hope SE doesn't sell out too. I don't want to end up with nothing if they cancel my LE orders next month.

Just picked up my limited edition at Nintendo World. They were told to sell it early & there were about 10 left on the back shelf if anyone wants to secure a copy!
