Best Buy has canceled a slew of Majora’s Mask 3DS XL pre-orders due to lack of supply. Earlier in the week, Best Buy had canceled orders with more than one order for Nintendo’s limited edition New 3DS XL, hoping to quell their supply problems. Obviously this was not enough. They then went ahead and have canceled a number of orders, regardless of whether they contained one order or not. To say the least, this has not left customers happy.
Here is the email that Best Buy has sent out to customers.
“We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on BestBuy.com.”
As explained in the email, Best Buy has offered a $50 credit on any product available on their website to those affected by the canceled order.
While this news is highly disappointing, hopefully retailers have the system in-store upon release so Zelda fans can have another chance to purchase this much-coveted system!
