That’s already pretty impressive, but do you know what was even more so? This was in Japan. The region that doesn’t really like Zelda games that much and pretty much bought hardly any copies of the most recent titles whatsoever. Yet within five minutes of Amazon Japan putting 700 bundles online, the whole lot was completely sold out.
For you guys in America anyway, the source given says nothing about how GAME might sell it over here in the UK. Still, according to someone on Twitter and i HeartNintendo, GameStop will only be offering the special Zelda 3DS on Black Friday on a first come first serve basis with no pre-orders. Read on to see the Tweet in question and my thoughts on the matter…

Here’s an article about it: http://nintendo3dsdaily.com/nintendo3dsnews/eevee-themed-nintendo-3ds-coming-may-15th/ Back then however, no one had idea what said system was going to look like.

It’s been rumoured for a while, but now a promotion poster advertising the new 3DS XL design has been spotted over in Japan. Here’s the poster mentioning it’s May 15th reveal: Unfortunately, Nintendo haven’t revealed the actual design yet (I assume this is what’s going to be revealed on May 15th), and it’ll also apparently be pretty difficult to get a hold of (from what I hear you have to win a special lottery for the chance to even buy one).
