Looks like you're correct. That was my guess for the price, anyway, so I'm not too shocked.

But hey, it comes with a 4GB SD card. I know how much that'll appease everyone who wanted a lower price.

Bleh...and pass....

As much as I want that beautiful blue beast, theres really no incentive for getting it for me anymore. Heres to hoping for the Pikachu or Charizard XL's over here....

Ive never played a fire emblem game so this doesnt really pop out to me besides that color blue, I love that blue.

I'm personally holding out and hoping we get the Animal Crossing 3DS XL here in the states.

Better get used to it. Nintendo is pushing their digital goods hard. Anything to save them a pretty penny in the long run.

Also I luv my XL.

I hope it's available there, too, as it might be easier for me to do some trade-ins and get some credit towards it instead of paying out of pocket.

If I get this bundle, I'll most likely keep it in the box, for collection purposes, as I'm assuming this won't be widely available, much less available at all for very long. Fire Emblem is the best Nintendo franchise in my eyes, and although I skipped over the OoT bundle, I doubt I can do that for this one.

That being said, I have a physical copy preordered at Gamestop for the artbook, and there's no way I would ever be content with a digital copy of almost any game, much less this one.

On another note, geez, Japan gets a lot of special 3DS/3DS XLs, don't they? I'm in awe.

I wish people would stop complaining that it is not a 3DSXL. GUYS IT CAME OUT BEFORE THE 3DS XL WAS EVEN ANNOUNCED IN JAPAN! Nintendo is not going to change the model to an XL just because the 3DSXL is out

Would have considered if it was a hard copy of the game. But $40 for a digital title with Nintendo's archaic digital system is a no go for me.

Then why include an SD card at all? Add me to the guys who wanted a physical copy of FE.

Looks like I'm skipping this. It's a shame I really wanted this but it's just priced a higher than I wanted it to be at.

It's Nintendo! They aren't gonna do special treatment. Like most other companies. If it's already done in Japan, they are just going to just port it over. It's easier just to get the same mold that was already done and just transfer it over to the US. I do feel no point in complaining cause I see this as usual practice. That's me though. New trend on how people act over the internet we're just gonna see people complain no matter what.

have too disagree with you on your opinion, how does one make something change if he does not complain? yes speak with your wallet an don't buy it, will show poor sell. but by saying nothing or not complaining they wont no why it got poor reviews an is not selling. maybe the world is full of jaded people an they except too much for nothing, but Nintendo an other companies are still in a business for are money, an you have a right too say what an how you want too spend it

I'm really glad we're getting this at all, but I agree with some of the others.

I've got a regular 3DS and dropping the $$ for a new regular one just doesn't sound tempting to me, but if it was an XL I'd at least consider selling my old one for this.

I agree with you on this. I am not going to get it because I already own a 3DS but hey finally another special colored Nintendo Console we can receive without importing (The Design of the Fire Emblem 3DS looks great).

Are you writing a letter to Nintendo expressing your discontent or are you just whining on forums? I highly doubt Nintendo reps are on here combing over every page of every Nintendo thread so complaining on here serves no other purpose than to make you feel better.

Well, I agree. I'm buying a retail copy. I'm just saying, Nintendo is pushing their digital angle, with the addition of retail titles more often on eShop. Now that they can pull this off, they can just stuff a $2 SD Card with this game.

I think $200 is the wrong price. I'm going to get it as a collector but a system like this isn't the same as Zelda. It's not going to be attractive to casual gamers unless it was cheaper so the people it targets are more hardcore gamers but they're also the ones who know the XL is better and would've only gotten this (for a good game and a really cool lookin system) if it were a bargain, but at $200 I cannot say it is.

With that in mind, I don't anticipate it'll be around for too long since Nintendo likely made a few of these last year and whatever they had leftover in Japan (plus the ones they may have made for the US) had their firmware/region set to US and sent here (otherwise why the hell else wouldn't it be an XL?) so quantity wise there shouldn't be many.

If you don't have a 3DS there are higher value bundles out there. If you have a 3DS there isn't a reason to get this when the XL is better. Really, unless you're a collector like myself (who won't actually open the box), this is a missed opportunity for Nintendo and something I'd advise people to pass on.

I was all for the bundle till I saw the $200 price point. That pretty much killed it for me right there.

Don't get me wrong, I love FE and will buy the game first day, but like a lot of people mentioned, its not even an XL or contain a physical copy of the game.

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 don't think so. I just hope that my local Best Buy gets it, that way I can use some of my reward points to lower the price by a lot. :D

It's a safe bet Amazon won't be carrying them right?

And it's probably a safe bet that Gamestop will get them.

I hope it's limited to just one or two retailers. I think Best Buy would be a good fit and they are more likely to run some sort of a promotion.

I can't believe the game comes out in less then a month and they haven't released the specifics.

Why do you think BB will run a promotion? Regretting cashing in my BB gift cards for Amazon ones right about now.
