A number of you have contacted me to say that Best Buy have canceled your New Nintendo 3DS Majora’s Mask edition consoles. The issue is is that it’s affecting those who only pre-ordered one system. As compensation the retailer has started to issue a $50 gift card as a way of saying sorry. It’s not clear why, but I’d assume they took too many pre-orders and don’t have the stock to fulfill them.
We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on BestBuy.com:
Thanks to all those who sent this in.
Looks like US retail chain Best Buy is cracking down on scalpers who are trying to make a quick buck off the back of the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D limited edition New Nintendo 3DS. Reports are going round the internet stating that Best Buy is cancelling orders if you ordered more than one console. That means that everyone is only allowed to purchase one console per customer to crack down on inflated eBay prices. We already heard GameStop is doing a similar scheme.
Want that new Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D New Nintendo 3DS XL? Well it’s currently up for grabs on Best Buy so be quick about it if you want it. I should remind you that the console doesn’t actually come with the game, though that’s reflected in the price. You can have it for $199.99. Are you going to pre-order?
With a Nintendo Direct only a couple of hours away, retailers are still hinting at possible release dates for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. Yesterday, we reported that GameStop stores had leaked a New Nintendo 3DS poster which stated the console would be released on February 13 in the US, as well as teasing potential dates for games launching alongside it. Though there’s no official date for the game yet – we’re hoping that will be cleared up later today – Best Buy has listed February 13 as the release date for Majora’s Mask 3D’s official strategy guide.
Available to pre-order in both the standard edition and the special collector’s edition, the Majora’s Mask 3D strategy guide from Prima will provide fans with in-depth knowledge on the game’s bosses and more. Aside from the gorgeous hard cover, the collector’s edition also comes with a sheet of character clings, and is priced at $34.99, with the standard version at $24.99. The collector’s edition guide also featured in GameStop’s Ultimate Limited Edition bundle, alongside the elusive Skull Kid figurine.

We already know that Amiibo are immensely popular, but what might surprise some people is that they’re currently tied with Disney Infinity for top 50 “game to toy” figure at US retail chain, Best Buy. Amiibo have already overtaken the immensely popular Skylanders at Best Buy and are currently battling it out with Disney Infinity. This is only one retailer in the United States, but it does bode well for the future of the Nintendo figures.
