Yesterday we found out that the Nintendo UK Store would be stocking the lovely Xenoblade Chronicles 3D coverplates for the New Nintendo 3DS and now today they’ve announced that they will also be stocking two Zelda themed coverplates. Both of these will be available to purchase for £12.99 and are available to pre-order right now.
If you were thinking about purchasing the Nintendo 2DS and you’re from the United Kingdom then you might want to consider purchasing one. UK retailer Tesco has slashed the pricing on its website and you can now be the proud owner of a Nintendo 2DS for £49. It obviously lacks the 3D, but it will play all the Nintendo 3DS games that are currently available.
If you want the Skull Kid figure then you’re in luck. Nintendo UK has announced that it’s giving away the figure with an order of a New Nintendo 3DS and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. If you got the New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador edition you are still eligible. All you need to do is buy Majora’s Mask 3D from the Nintendo UK store, or from any retailer, and then redeem your Club Nintendo code and a figure will be sent out. Here’s the details according to the email.
Thank you for purchasing New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition Bundle.

The Super Mario Collection Amiibo may have sold out on Amazon.com, but Amazon UK has just listed them for pre-order.

JVM over at the NeoGAF forums has received sales data for the United Kingdom during 2014. Remember, the United Kingdom is the biggest video game market in the whole of Europe. Sales for software on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One seem to be extremely healthy as UK games clamour for that next generation experience. However, it’s Nintendo platforms that have taken a hit. The Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U software sales aren’t anything to write home about despite several high-profile releases for the Wii U. Let’s hope things change this year.
Bad luck for those hoping to secure a pre-order for the official Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask New Nintendo 3DS bundle on the Nintendo UK Store as it has now officially sold out. The Nintendo UK Store was the only place to purchase the limited edition Majora’s Mask New Nintendo 3DS in the UK. However, if you want the standard New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL then they are still in stock. There’s a variety of bundles so be sure to check them all out, right here.
