If you pre-ordered the special edition of Fire Emblem Fates at GameStop in hopes of getting those bonus keychains, you should start checking for availability elsewhere. Due to a system glitch, the retailer mistakenly allowed more pre-orders after meeting their allocation way back on November 18th. Because of this, GameStop is cancelling all orders for Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition that were made after that date.
This news comes from a picture that a GameStop store leader received from their higher ups. As you can see in the image below, there is no mention of an apologetic gift for unfortunate buyers–something of a staple for these mishaps. Instead, it is simply suggested that the purchaser move their pre-order over to another product, or cancel their order and buy the three versions that come in the special edition separately. Have any of you been affected by this?

Prolific video game retailer GameStop will be closing all their stores in Puerto Rico very soon. The company blames the move on “ongoing business challenges and increased governmental restraints.” All the GameStop stores in Puerto Rico will close by March 2016 which will come as a blow to fans of the establishment. There’s currently 35 stores in Puerto Rico which is a fair amount. Here’s what a company representative had to say.
“Given the ongoing business challenges and increased governmental restraints we have experienced in Puerto Rico, GameStop has made the business decision to close all of its video game stores and operations located on the island. As a result, GameStop will be exiting the Puerto Rican market by the end of March 2016. Until that time, we will continue to conduct normal business operations.”
