In case you didn’t wake up early enough to catch the Nintendo Direct this morning, some very exciting Majora’s Mask 3D news was revealed. Though many had speculated the upcoming release date, and that there would be a bundle of sorts, it was great to see Nintendo officially release information on the anticipated title.

After revealing the February 13 release date for the New 3DS, Bill Trinen revealed at the end of the presentation that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D would not only release on the same day as the new Nintendo handheld, but a special edition of the New 3DS XL would be available as well. It is important to note that the game and special edition handheld will be sold separately.

The special edition XL looks very cool, and will most likely be out of stock very quickly, so you may want to capitalize on this offer sooner, rather than later. You can watch the entire Direct below, which also features more information regarding the upcoming Hyrule Warriors DLC, titled the “Majora’s Mask” pack.

    And it’s already sold out at GameStop and EBGames Canada.

    I’m not sure it has been placed on sale yet as I’ve been on top of it all morning and haven’t seen any available. Perhaps there is still hope!

    • Its sold out, I preordered one as soon as they appeared, and they are now no longer avaliable…

      • Anthony Moseley

        What a shock. -_- Freaking scalpers.

        • 17Haru17 .

          It’s not scalpers, it’s Nintendo not wanting more money.

      • JT

        Just called GameStop, we need to go in and do an in store web order. Luckily, I have one nearby. Trying to do mine now, let you know if it works.

  • “It is important to note that the game and special edition handheld will be sold separately.”

    Unless I read that wrong, I think this image states otherwise.

    • Nevermind; I found out that it indeed will not ship with the game. That’s fine with me.

      • 17Haru17 .

        Yeah, that picture is the European version, which, I think, costs more.

    I am looking for it in UK sites and stores and haven’t found it yet. Any news on when it will be available for pre-order in the UK?

    • Kai Shepherd

      Anyone?

      • Alpha Fenrir

        As far as I can tell, it hasn’t gone on to the official uk store yet. Unless it went off the store within the first 2 hours of the direct ending…

      • Alpha Fenrir

        However, they’ve yet to update the release date for MM on there, so I don’t think they’ve done it yet.

      • Michael Brookes

        Here you go mate:

        Nintendo have them on same page as the game, here’s the link to all the bundles inc the MM edition 🙂

  • Domingo Cardona

    This whole “sold out” situation with Nintendo is really starting to piss me off. First the Gamecube adapter for Wii U, then the re-release of it which sold out AGAIN in 10 minutes, the Majora’s Mask limited addition with Skullkid statue, and now this?!

    WTF Nintendo?! WTF?!

    • Talmor

      I’m with you, Domingo Cardona. I’m with you.

    • Sageofsarcasm

      Sometimes I wonder if it is just to boost sales (not always Nintendo). It isn’t fair to people who are busy with life who WOULD preorder Day One but can’t because they sell out in fifteen minutes. I’ve been wanting the MM special edition 3DS for years but I’ll probably just go with a regular one and customize it.

      • Domingo Cardona

        yeah the big problem with it is the fact that apparently scalpers are able to buy more than one unit (apparently no 1 per customer restriction maybe?) and Nintendo isn’t doing anything to make sure these go out to people who actually want them, and more to the hawks who wait to try and make more money from impatient people.

        • Sageofsarcasm

          Ugh, exactly.

    • Cubx

      I think the biggest issue is people are buying preorders just to resell them on ebay. I was working at Best Buy when the GC adapter came out. A co worker told me that someone came in and bought TEN of them the day they came out. I was off that today, or I would have limited him to 5, like we were supposed to.

      • Anthony Moseley

        Seriously, if someone has the money to buy 10 of them, then they really have no business scalping to begin with. Geez, people are greedy these days.

  • Ryan Haney

    My precious!

  • Lesley Bird

    Can you get this in the UK?

  • Darek McCaughey

    i bought a new 3ds xl in aus before this i wonder if i can trade it in anhd use the trade in for the preorder?

    • Aileen Caitlyn Clarke

      Yes you can and if you trade in at the same time you pick up your pre-order they may give you a bonus

  • Arya

    Best buy has it !
    HURRY!

    Majora’s Mask 3ds preorder

  • JT

    Bestbuy is taking online orders. If you haven’t purchased it, I recommend you go quick before it locks down.

  • Arya

    Best buy has it hurry!
    Majora’s Mask 3ds

  • SnowsilverKat

    Well, we hounded Nintendo with petitions wanting this game, so now we’ll just have to hound Nintendo with petitions wanting more Majora New 3DS XL’s. It worked once, maybe it’ll work again!! XD

    • Aileen Caitlyn Clarke

      The petition was a waist of time. They were already making it when it started.

      • TristanTsunami

        She’s right.
        Nintendo were working on it since 2011.
        They were just REALLY GOOD about teasing us, 😀

        • SnowsilverKat

          It was a joke. Guess it’s harder to read that in type 😛

    • DarmusXIII

      Only way they’ll get it that they should limit low life scalpers to 1 per household I say a petition should be started fairly ridiculous we can’t PURCHASE something we want because of these people buying high quantities just to sell for hundreds later I mean cmon if u go on Amazon there’s allready some up for 400 dollars and up WTF LOL

      • Ernesto Y. Gonzalez-Tome

        just buy one from them scalpers then when you get it cancel the transaction and and you keep the item n your money thats what i done lol. the first time i told ebay someone stolen my card so the scalper had to pay me back the money n he didn’t know i have the item lol. the 2nd time i i just cancel n told amazon that i never got my item n i wanted my money back so i got my money back lol n still keep the item lol. i just hate the damn scalpers they need to get a f-ing job.

        • Talmor

          No one like scalpers, they make it really frustrating to get a hold of special merchandise, but at least THEY aren’t thieves.

          • Ernesto Y. Gonzalez-Tome

            Really cuz i think they are stealing your money for saling you somethinking that is double or even 3 times more then its original prices. For me i think thats stealing.

          • Talmor

            I just remember the economy and job market is in the trash and that these scalper guys are probably just trying to find a way to pay rent and maybe not live hand-to-mouth so much. I may not like what they do, but they did purchase the merchandise legitimately.

            There is no business in the world that doesn’t raise the prices of their merchandise over what they themselves bought the item at. Everything you buy in a store is, in reality, worth less than what you pay for.

  • Merylas

    Anyone who has ever bought a themed console like this before: How well do the designs hold up? Like… do they normally last a long time, or do they scratch off quickly? Regardless, this will look better than the other models, but still… I’m hoping that the design holds up well.

  • Michael Brookes

    Hope this helps you UK people, just ordered mine 🙂

    on Nintendo store now but not advertised well:

  • Dustin Kyle Berezowski

    This bothers me so much! I specifically held off on buying a 3DS XL because i had a hunch that Nintendo would make a Majora’s Mask Edition – which they did, much to my joy!

    BUT!! Because I have to go to work everyday to be able to afford such an item, they were sold out before I could even think about which store I would go pre-order it at.

    I hate scalpers so much – how is there not any sort of policy in place at these stores for items like this to stop people from buying (or pre-ordering) multiple copies of these?
