Last week, it looked like consumers were going to be able to purchase the Pikachu Edition Nintendo 3DS XL for only $149.99 from Toys “R” Us. However, it turns out that the retailer will actually sell the limited edition system for $170, but it will come with a $20 gift card. The Pikachu Edition Nintendo 3DS XL and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity come out today in North America. Do you plan on picking one up first thing in the morning?
It looks like consumers will be able to purchase a discounted Pikachu Edition Nintendo 3DS XL, if they act fast. The limited edition system launches in the U.S. on March 24th at a suggested retail price of $199.99, but it appears as though retailer Toys “R” Us will sell it for $149.99 until March 30th. The Pikachu Edition Nintendo 3DS XL comes packaged with a 4GB SD Card and launches on the same day as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.
Toys R Us is currently selling Disney Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion for the Nintendo 3DS for the reduced price of $19.99. The recently released game has received mixed reviews from the gaming press and currently has a score of 64 on Metacritic. User reviews for Disney Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion stand at 5.5.
Retail chain Toys R Us have been contacting customers letting them know that some of the stores have not received their Wii U hardware ahead of the launch tomorrow. We’re not sure how many people will be affected by this, but it will clearly come as a blow to those that have pre-ordered with the retailer. Here’s what the email says:
“We wanted to inform you that we have not yet received inventory on your Wii U Black Deluxe Set Hardware pre-order which was expected in-store on November 18th, 2012. We will send you a follow-up email once this item is available and ready for pickup.”
On November 23rd Toys R Us will be offering gamers the chance to purchase one Wii U game and get another Wii U game of their choice for 40% off. Though it’s a Black Friday deal, the promotion will actually start at 8pm Thursday, November 22nd and will run until Black Friday.
You can now pre-order the Wii U Basic 8GB console at US retailer Toys R Us. The retailer outlet was previously out of stock of both models but has opened up pre-orders for the Basic 8GB package which they’re bundling with Batman Arkham City and Scribblenauts Unlimited. There’s currently no word on when you’ll be able to pre-order the Premium 32GB bundle.
The Wii U has made the Toys R Us Fabulous Fifteen Holiday List proudly sitting alongside the Furby, the One Direction doll set, and Toys R Us new child friendly tablet, the Tabeo. Unsurprisingly the Premium and Basic Wii U consoles are completely sold out at the retailer, but they do say to check back at a later date when presumably more will become available.
You can now add Toys R Us as another North American retailer that has completely sold out of its allocated pre-order stock of Wii U. Both the Premium 32GB and Basic 8GB Wii U consoles are sold out at the popular retail outlet. If you search for both models there’s some blurb that suggests that they may have pre-orders back up and running at a later date.
You can pre-order Square Enix’s promising action role-playing game for a mere $30 at Toys R’ Us. The game is available at a number of other retail outlets, including Amazon, for $40. Heroes of Ruin was made exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS and it was reported that N-Space managed to unlock extra power in the 3DS for multiplayer features.
Toys “R” Us in the United States is selling the fantastic The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the bargain price of $29.99. It’s generally quite rare to see first party Nintendo games at a reduced price, especially since the game didn’t launch so long ago. The Legend of Zelda: skyward Sword is one of the best games on Wii so if you haven’t already purchased it nows your chance.
