Limited Edition Majora's Mask New 3DS | Best Buy Limits Majora's Mask New 3DS to 1 Per Customer

Limited Edition Majora’s Mask New 3DS

If you were one of the people who wanted one of these lovely limited edition Majora’s Mask New 3DS systems, you were probably plenty frustrated with recent events. However, as confirmed by numerous posters on NeoGAF, Best Buy is now cancelling orders on people who ordered more than one of this item. Those people are left with only one of this item pre-ordered as a result. Yes, it sucks if you were legitimately ordering more than one of these for family members and whatnot. If so, you have the lowly scalpers to thank for that.

This move will have stock replenishing, but there is one big question still to be answered. When will the Majora’s Mask Limited Edition New 3DS be available for pre-order again? Sadly, there is no word on this as of yet, so only time will tell.

Majora's Mask New 3DS

The fact that this limited edition 3DS does not come with a copy of the game in North America is rather unfortunate. It would’ve been a good excuse to get the limited edition of the game that comes with the Skullkid figurine. Sadly, you can’t at the moment (again, due to overly limited supplies and scalpers coming out of the woodwork). They ought to limit orders on this item as well. Both of these items have been troublesome in terms of availability, as have some amiibos. Supply is simply not satisfying demand, although it would be much more so without all of the scalpers.

Majora’s Mask 3D – Limited Edition

For both the Limited Edition Majora’s Mask┬áNew 3DS and the limited edition of the game itself, there is also still the possibility that there will be another shipment from Nintendo. Hopefully, this will be the case so people who want it can get it at the regular price rather than getting it at super-inflated scalper pricing. Please DO NOT do that though. Encouraging scalpers is a bad idea, unless you like paying crazy prices for stuff. Trust me, I saw a Majora’s Mask Limited Edition New 3DS on Amazon for $900…

If you want either of these items, there’s really nothing you can do but wait and see if they become available again. There’s still a while left before the launch date, so don’t give up hope just yet. It was insane how fast they sold out (not to mention very disappointing for fans who wanted one). Thanks, scalpers…

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    It’s just ridiculous and disheartening to see how actual fans are getting the short end of the stick in a lot of these cases.

    Don’t get me started on NIntendo’s piss poor “limited edition” fiascos. They are the only bloody company I can’t ever seem to procure any form of collectors edition whether it be games or consoles. I’m so fucking wound up about the whole New 3DS fuck up that it’s turned me off getting one. All i wanted was the Majora’s Mask one but never had a chance. Nintendo – friend of the scalpers.
