According to, if you want Ocarina of Time 3D and live in Japan, you better pre-order it soon.

Apparently, Nintendo is planning to deliver “extremely small” shipments to Japanese retailers, whether it’s a small store or a large store.  Nintendo is not allowing retailers to order a specific number of units, at least for the first shipment.

Why, you might ask?  Who knows? Maybe it’s due to numerous copies of Spirit Tracks tossed into bargain bins within a few months of its release, leaving Nintendo to be more cautious with their numbers.  Maybe it’s because of the earthquakes and tsunami, leaving few retailers where they hit, and leaving even fewer roads to deliver on.

What do you all think?  Are you going to pre-order it? Why do you think Nintendo is doing this?  Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
