Although it was fairly obvious that the Pikachu themed New 3DS XL would be popular, Amazon may not have predicted just how quickly their allocation of stock would be reserved for the newly announced handheld. All pre-orders on the Amazon US website have now sold out, just a couple of hours after they went live.

The console is $199.99 and is due for release on 24th February this year. You can take a look below:

It’s not known yet if Amazon will be getting more stock in the future, but we’ll keep you posted with any updates.

  1. There’s something I can never understand regarding limited edition stuff (like BOTW: Master Edition), how do people know when it’ll get listed? Do people just sit at home and hit search repeatedly to find the listing on Amazon?

    I watched the Jan Switch presentations live but it was not until later that I saw Reggie introduce the different editions of BOTW on TreeHouse live. As soon as I saw that, I scoured the Internet for BOTW: Master Edition but had no luck. Most sites didn’t have the special editions listed at the time and I believe Amazon was sold out. To this date, I still did not find any official announcement of the special edition bundles.

    Do they not announce a pre-order time? That way at least I can try to work around my schedule and try my luck placing an order. Otherwise it’s not even fair, especially when I’m travelling a lot outside of North America due to work. Miss the news by a few minutes and boom, too bad, sucks to be you, like wtf… They should do multiple waves of pre-orders to actually give everyone a chance.

    • They should sell more numbers of collectors or special editions, the low quantity they sell is so absurd and unfair, imagine for a person that lives in South America? Impossible to get one.

  3. I’m confused about the new 3DS. I tested a new 3DS that was on display at Target (with Majora’s Mask 3D playing). I tested the 3D switch, and the 3D still looks BAD. I thought it was supposed to be improved on the new 3DS? Still looked bad to me. If I had bought a new 3DS (thinking that the 3D was greatly improved) I would have been seriously ticked off.
