The release date is the 24th, so you probably won't receive it till next week.

Do they typically start shipping the games out before release date?

It's an 'enhanced' port.

+Possibly better graphics
+3D
+NO WAGGLE CONTROLS
+Multiplayer between two units
+New content/levels/challenges
+Affordable price.

Many people missed out on the original, and the waggle controls did turn people away. The port is pretty cheap and it packs new features so why not?


Don't forget:

-Worse graphics (even positive reviews mention this)
-Half the frame rate of the Wii version (3DS can't handle this at 60fps like the Wii did)

GameInformer gave this an 8.5 score with the side note of some frame rate slow downs.

IGN and GameXplain also gave it a pretty high score so I'm not worried about whether this game will be good or not. I never owned a Wii and missed the chance to play this so I'll happily except the weaker graphics/framerate to play it. Plus side is it doesn't have the lame motion controls. Can't wait to get this in the mail. :)

I certainly agree 100% that elimination of the lame forced waggle gimmick for this game (3DS) vs. the Wii version is a huge plus. Why couldn't they just offer people an alternative to the waggle on that version? Really seems like a forced gimmick.

Newegg will ship the day before, but normally Nintendo has Sunday release dates, so they normally ship on Friday or Mondays. I'm hoping this ships from CA, as I normally get their 3 day UPS items next day when they do. So I may get it Friday, if they ship on Thursday. Fingers crossed, as playing over the weekend would be way cool.

This is technically a remake, so maybe they'll ship even sooner, but I doubt it. I'll post back once my card gets charged.

Was on the fence about this one, but ended up deciding to cancel it as it would just go into the backlog anyway. Might pick it up down the road when it's cheaper though.

I've rarely had them ship before the release date. It's the trade off for getting these good deals.

Not to bust everyone's bubble or change subject, but Best Buy doing the SMB:LL free promo(which is a $4.99 savings) and since the game comes out in two days, isn't DKC4 3D eligible for in store pick up? No waiting on shipping +holiday.

There is a thread for the DCKR 3D Best Buy deal already. Free shipping or in-store pickup as well.

FYI, my Newegg order was charged about 1:30am last night, so my order should be shipping today. Hopefully it's shipping from CA, in which case I should get it on Friday, otherwise I won't see it until Tues/Wed next week. Sadly, the latter is more likely, as almost all of my recent game orders have been shipping from the mid east area of the country.

Damn, same here. Coming from NJ means the full 3 days for me. Oh well, at least I didn't pay tax or shipping charges.

Glad it is coming from NJ as the hub they usually sort things at is 2 hours away. And when it comes from somewhere to the West of me, they drive it passed me to the hub the back to me lol.
