Just did the same, though I opted for Free Delivery.

I checked the delivery estimations before cancelling my original order, the original order said 31/03, the new one said 16/02

is there not a free magazine with this too? anyone know the freebie promotion code?

wonder whether those purchasing it for it's "limited" availability will be peeved at this. This is the 4th wave direct from nintendo. Doesn't affect me as I toyed with the idea but didn't want one.

Omg this is awesome finally ordered mine again after nintendo cancelled my last one because of a fault with paypal! Can't wait to get it thanks!!!

Got mine today from Amazon,
You will not regret ordering this, Nintendo has put loving care into this.

Does the game come preinstalled or as a seperate cart/box?

I received my MM3DSXL on wednesday, these are fantastic machines and I highly recommend to upgrade if you use an old 3DS!

Game is already installed, no game box except the one the 3DS comes in which has MM all over it anyway.

Cheers, was hoping the game came separate, so I could sell it off and buy it later

I'm guessing some people cancelled due to money issues or payments were declined. Who knows? Well, it's sold out already.

I was just about to post this. You guys sure are fast. I per ordered one. I hope it goes through and nothing goes wrong ^-^

My hinge slides side to side, it is really annoying :\

It's japan. It could be either one of two things. Ping pong or blow up dalls. I think its the latter lol.

Says sold out again.

Call me crazy, but personally I've never really been a fan of the Zelda special edition consoles. The Wii U one was decent as it was just the Gamepad and the design was quite understated, but the 3DS models tend to be very heavy on the Gold Paint, and I thought it looked a bit tacky. I thought the MH4U silver New 3DS looked much better.

But hey, that's my opinion, and given the demand for these it would appear I'm in the minority.

People just get them because they resell for more.

This is when all of us who cancelled our March orders receive cancellations for these ones too.

Thanks ordered one.

Even though I've ordered the XL variant, I'm a bit concerned with the stretched graphics. Does it look bad or acceptable?

I still fancy the idea of interchangeable covers and coloured buttons of the smaller 3DS.

Same here; my top half has ~2mm of give side to side and is quite loose back to front with ~5mm of movement. I searched online and there are plenty of threads about the original 3ds xl hinge having a lot of movement, although mine never did. Reportedly it is deliberate because if the movement is too stiff the pressure from opening / closing isn't absorbed and the hinges crack, which was apparently a serious problem with the DS models. The Youtube channel "Gamexplain" has a brief review on the new 3ds xl and specifically mentions the loose top half so perhaps it is a deliberate choice to make the hinges looser in new models and not a "fault".

I'm not going to use mine until the Hori clear case is available next week anyway and hopefully that should help reduce the movement whilst it is in use.

XL is well worth the investment. Best money you'll spend

So there will be a new Hori clear case specifically for the new consoles?

They usually bring a clear case out, I had one for a special edition DSi years ago. Here's the Amazon link:

amazon.co.uk/gp/…OLE

I have noticed it appears to be two separate pieces whereas the DSi one I had years ago was fitted as one piece with a hinge, so it might not stiffen the movement after all.

Bit disappointing that these couldn't have gone to us with the end of March dispatch date.

This isn't officially endorsed and is obviously brand new so no reviews but is definitely the more typical hinged clear case. Seems like it would do the job fine and is cheaper.

Damn it I've missed it three times now been refreshing the page all damn week too.

I have a Hori clear for my old Nintendo 3ds XL and I really recommend these cases. Already pre ordered the new one.

I don't know about that one. It says hard case so you may scratch your console. The Hori cases are soft
