This hyperbole has really gotten old.  Ask Europeans how they enjoyed their Breath of the Wild Master Editions.

I will. While I am doing that, I will also ask them how much they are enjoying their Metroid Samus Return CE and Fire emblem Warriors limited edition

I'll offer a recap and update the OP tomorrow. Feeling a bit burnt out atm. To add fuel to the fire for EU > NA: 

 

SNES Themed New 3DS XL for Europe

Good chance we are not getting this either.

Are the 3DS region locked?

EDIT: After asking that I searched, which I should have done first.

To answer this question if anyone else has it: YES it's region locked but there are ways around it.

Honestly, even though we got the butt ugly SNES here in the states, I think enough of "N" current fan-base knows what the SNES/Super Famicom look like from EU/Japan. So while I don't think we'll ever get this, I will say there is a small possibility. It would for sure sell here if ever offered, especially if it's limited in some way, but NoA is really become shit in recent years, with no signs of ever returning to greatness.

 

I'm personally going to keep an eye out at Play-Asia, as they have offered a few N3DS Asia models that where US region set, and it's more likely to show up there, than any official NoA product here in the states.

 

I have to also agree, that N of EU has been great for the last 3-5 years, as they went from not even being a blip to anyone, to now getting the most and closest to what Japan gets. And years ago, that was NoA. I don't know when and where it changed, but it sure as hell did. Our Club Nintendo got really bad near the end, and EU was still getting pretty cool physical rewards, when we where getting crap.

Surprised some Asia or UK vendor doesn't already have exclusivity on a US version the way things have been.

 

You know Rice Digital would have the US SNES 3DS exclusive for $399 or something.

Don't forget Gamescom is going on, so that's why we're seeing all the EU announcements at once.

Did anyone notice there's a separate listing on Amazon for the Steelbook of FF: Dissidia NT? 

Here's the link: https://www.amazon.c...y+dissidia&th=1

No prime discount though, not sure if mentioned.

Do you know if the the packaging/items are in english? the picture is just a production image with minor modifications. I remember someone mentioning the game website but it mentions won't ship international.

I believe it's all in English since it's the same unit shipped to all of Europe but I could be wrong. If you want to play it safe and can live with it the PC version is available at Amazon U.K. again.

I bought a wizard edition of the first one that was all in English from Europe but I don't remember if I got it off the U.K. site. I have Metroid Legacy preordered off the German website as well. Really hoping that's in English cause I've only seen it up once and it was there. Haven't even found a page for it on the U.K. site.

I have the FE CE preordered off Amazon JP but forgot the Nintendo is still region locking their systems. Not sure I want to pay all that money just for the extras...

Also found an image of the inside of the Metroid 3DS. Solid black. Looks like I'll be canceling that preorder. How boring to just paint the exterior but leave the interior unfinished.

I will try the PC one since just want the packaging and items. Would you use the standard delivery that is free or use the global standard shipping that has an cost?

I don't think the free shipping is even an option for international orders but if I could use it I would. Paid about 5 quid for shipping.

You are talking about Fire Emblem Warriors, which is for the Switch? Because the Switch is region free.

The ONE defense I have of NoA here is that unlike Japan which had a had a near identical design the SNES in America looked quite different. That said it's bullshit that NoA doesn't do this.

these will probably be flickering in and out of stock the next couple weeks as we lead up to release as people decide to cancel etc. gamestop has been in and out of stock all day yesterday rarely lasting longer then an hour.

Yeah it sucks and with region locking I'm not willing to repeatedly hack the 3DS to play games on it.

Was it ever live? I have a feeling that "coming soon" is legit in this case. I plan to watch this like a hawk as I'm not sure I'll keep my GS preorder at 280 bucks.

I ordered the Destiny 2 CE from BB on 3/30. Not sure if it's been available since then.

Thanks. Preordered. I think these will probably have a slipcover or something over them to hide what version of steelbook you'll receive. Hopefully you'll still be able to tell if the artwork shows on the edges.

Ah, thanks. I may just cancel as I'm only interested since the bag looks rather nice and like most people I have some friends and family who I could play casually with. Never even finished Taken King.

Be careful, because there was a wave a couple months ago where people got banned for circumventing even just the region lock.

Yeah they did.  I went to quickly replace my placeholder orders with a BB order only to find that I already had a BB order months ago.

Amazon was the only retailer who didn't put the Destiny 2 CE up yet for some unknown reason.

20% off preorders only and they will probably just release it on release date.
