Just picked a copy of the game at my local Target (Christiana Mall, Delaware). I called first and they said they had 5 in stock but they said it was being released tomorrow. I told him no and he double checked and confirmed. I just left there 10 minutes ago and they had 4 left...not sure if he put them out yet....didn't see it with the rest of the 3DS games.

Has anyone who pre-ordered the 3DS Bundle receive any word from GameStop? My online order is still pending and now GameStop has removed the release date for the bundle on its online page.


Apparently the gamestop that I pre-ordered from HAS the bundle, but they just can't sell it to me until tomorrow because that's the release date that shows up on their computers.

Go figure... :/

My local GameStop is telling me Friday for the bundles.

Is that matching up with what you guys are hearing?

I just went into GameStop, the dude already predicted what I was in there for before I even finished my statement. Must be a lot of others asking the same thing. He said they won't have the games nor the bundles in until Friday, and they'll give me a call whenever they're in stock. On a side note, I went to a Target and a Fred Meyer (Kroger) today during errands and neither of them had the game in stock either. :O

I'll find out when I work tonight the situation at my Gamestop, but I am going to Target before to grab it.

Yup same information the rep told me and they said phone calls were being made for each reservation personally to send out a notice of the delay.

Does anyone know if Frys will get some bundles in or is it a Gamestop exclusive in NA, barring Newegg?

My target is telling me if they had it, it'd be out. The in store locator says they have it. Team lead was super hesitant to go back there. I told him that if they do have it, and their system won't allow me to buy it I'd walk away no problem. Just irritating because a friend of mine bought it at a target a city over. First world problem, I know.

Those in the upper Midwest may want to check out Meijer for the game. The forest park (Cincinnati) location had several today.

Yes! I just called and they'll be in on Friday. Today is the LAST day to reserve the bundle. If you don't reserve it you will not get it!

I think the Nintendo World store in NYC might be selling it B&M also.

Only other place I've seen it listed at is Toys R Us:

And even then it's not coming out until 02/19 :cold:

I even brought up their own website saying today was the release date. I think I pissed off the team lead by being more informed. I asked him to scan it in front of me so I could see that it was street dated but he refused.

I successfully bought Fire Emblem at a Target in Vancouver, WA. It was out on display, they had 3 copies total. The guy was more than happy to sell me a copy.

I also found copies available at a Fred Meyer as well.

Dallas Texas people. My brother was able to purchase one from the target across from towneast mall. I tried calling others in the damn area and explained that my brother go one from the mesquite store and they all said no.

My Target had none out for display but when I asked an employee, he then went and got one out of the back for me. He asked if I had called earlier. I didn't. I guess somebody else was hunting it down.

Well this is infuriating, lol.

I'd buy it from the eShop, but I kind of hate Nintendo's lack or contingency regarding transfers etc.

Yeah the transfer stuff scares me especially on a $40 game.

Plus you don't get the awesome pixel art cart ;)

Most likely, but someone recently said their gamestop has the bundle that won't sell it till tomorrow. I would give your local gamestop a call if you want the bundle earlier.

That is a sweet cart. I'll just order it from Amazon, and finish Persona 4 Golden while I wait.

Ugh called two Targets that said they had it in stock online ( I also called and the first one said they had one) So I go to one and neither had the game, the first target even called the second one and they didn't have it either, even though they said they did when I called.

Those of you having problems at Target are confirmed to be idiots.

It's called "ask for management" and "call your Nintendo rep".
