Nintendo UK Store Has Apparently Been Sending Customers The Wrong Zelda Faceplates

A thread has blown up on Reddit stating that the official Nintendo UK store has been sending customers the wrong Legend of Zelda faceplates for the New Nintendo 3DS. Those who ordered the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask faceplates have apparently received the Triforce plates instead, and vice versa. Clearly some people aren’t happy with this mistake and for good reason.
