199 at amazon.co.uk so this seems to be the cheapest around.
Release Date: 22 November 2013

Use code BAZAVVI for another 10% off which makes it come down to 175,48 !

Edit: Code seems to be expired. Price up to 194.98. Still cheaper then other places.

Would personally rather pay the extra couple of quid to get from amazon for something so collectible. But good price none the less!

Southcott: To tell you the truth i put my preorder in at Amazon just for the better service alone. Wel worth the 5 quid. But those looking for a bargain should buy at zavvi.

Would argue for some it may be worth buying at zavvi

For following reasons:

194 rewardz points worth £1.94
Tcb 2.1 % around £4

So all in all over £10 cheaper but if its just price zavvi wins

Game or pre installed?

just found out its a DL code...

Want this badly but hate that. Physical copies all day long for me.

Original Poster

You can always sell the DL code at a decent price and still buy the physical copy.

Not really used Zavvi before. Why are they best to avoid? When do zavvi charge for pre-orders - on order or on despatch?

I hate Zavvi because of their bad customer service and long delivery times. Dont know why others hate m.

They charge on dispatch.

They aren't recommended as their delivery times aren't fantastic and if anything goes wrong, their customer service is literally the worst you will ever encounter!

Can the 10% codes be used on this?

Absolutely crazy imo, creating a collectors edition of a console and handing out a download version of the game with it

Maybe a good job though as I was trying to justify buying one of these to erm, accompany my Pikachu XL...

Digital copy -.-

Why is this so expensive compared to the other limited editions ? Nintendo are so damn greedy.
Can someone copy/paste the Amazon link in here? Cannot find it on there!

Agreed. If you do preorder and immediately sell the code on eBay you won't lose anything.

Did exactly that with the Wii U Zelda, sold the code for £35 (£31.50 after fees), bought it physical the same day from Zavvi for £31.29.

Just got my 3DS XL today, was only £135 though, mine seems to click more than my brothers when it locks into place, is this normal?

Animal crossing ltd edition had the game already installed on machine.

I know........have pre-ordered from amazon.

Now do I sell my normal 3DS or keep this one sealed?

And if I do sell my normal 3DS can i transfer my digital games from it to the 3ds XL?
Edited by: "chrisvenn" 15th Oct 2013

That's a really nice 3DS, but I personally think £200 is asking rather a lot. You can buy a Wii U for not much more, and a PS4 is only £350.

Also, a Vita goes for way less nowadays, which means that you are essentially buying yesterday technology at over-inflated prices.

I would have paid £150 for this. But £200 is just way too much.

Edit: I know it's limited edition. But man, that 3DS is still too expensive. And the worst thing is, I'm probably still going to buy it. Probably.

Yes, you can transfer your account and all digital games and info over. I did when I upgraded to a 3DS XL.

Thank you,

I guess I have to wait till i get it before i sell my normal 3ds as will need both to make the transfer?

This design is super lazy and a quick cash in; Zelda deserves better. So.. much... gold... my eyesssssss

This or the Luigi 3ds Special edition - this seems to be quite rare but available to pre order direct from nintendo.

Code 'BAZAVVI' is working for this at the moment to get 10% off, although its possible Zavvi may cancel the order if using it

Are these actually "limited", or will I be able to pick one up closer/after 22 Nov?

I actually think it's a classy design that's better than most of the previous European exclusive ones. The Japan-exclusive ones though.. my word... I'd love to get my hands on them

I've never seen large print runs of limited edition Zelda stuff. But you should still be able to pick one up closer to launch since this isn't the US which goes absolutely bonkers for some editions.

I'd like to see actual pictures at some point before buying this, I already have the red Pokemon 3DS XL but I do like zelda stuff. Black insides might have looked a bit nicer.

Buy it!

Even if it's too much, it's one of those that's unlikely to drop much (if it's really limited then the value can only go up) so you'll be able to sell it later on for little to no loss.

It's the same price as the others when you take the game price off, no?

With that code BAZAVVI it's incredibly tempting! Personally iv never had any problem with zavvi. Maybe I'm just the exception but with topcashback aswell, mmmmmm too tempting! Great find and nice code!

Is the release date correct at 1st January 2015?

Original Poster

THe news broke today so i guess the release date is just a wild guess. I assume the release date is the same as the Zelda game in november.

Game UK are supposed to be getting a lil treasure chest as a pre-order bonus for the game https://vine.co/v/hwzQb2LpneO

You can transfer everything using the system transfer.
You transfer all of your games, activity log and streetpasses.

You do realize £199 is the RRP?

It will go down! The Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter 3DS XL's had a RRP of £219, and you could of pre-ordered both of them for £189 each on GAME!

It's hard to imagine that they haven't improved their level of customer service, as it's laughably easy to find negative feedback on the brand. Also, they should just blanket label all their codes 'POTLUCK13'
