Nintendo UK Store may be cancelling your pre-order for Fire Emblem Fates: Limited Edition

Fire Emblem Fates is my most anticipated game of the year right now, and you wouldn’t BELIEVE my happiness when I was able to pre-order the special edition of the game when it came back in stock VERY briefly just under a week after it went up on the Official Nintendo UK Store. Sadly, despite the utmost quality of service they provide, they may have to cancel your pre-order for the special edition, if you pre-ordered the second time round.

The product first sold out on April 1st, but it was showing up a few days later due to a technical error. If you have placed your order during this period, Nintendo UK will be unavailable to fulfil this order. To compromise for this, they have offered a discount of £5 off your next order. In addition, they will allow you to pre-order a new  bundle, at the cost of the typical limited edition, that will include the following:

  • All the paths, being Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation, with the first coming as a boxed version, whilst the latter two will be available as download codes
  • A Fire Emblem Fates T-Shirt
  • A free pre-order only Fire Emblem Fates Home Menu Theme

You can use your £5 discount code on this bundle if you so wish. Let us know if you have received this most grave e-mail, or if you want to shove it in our faces (particularly mine), then go right ahead and say that you were lucky enough to be able to pre-order it.
