Nintendo is bringing the New 3DS XL to North America next month, and that includes a special edition version that is themed around the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. But if you want one of these, you’d better act fast.
Not long after Nintendo’s Direct video event this morning, GameStop started selling the Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL online. Less than a half-hour later, it was sold out on the website. If you want that Zelda-themed handheld, you can still get it by going into a GameStop retail location. But that is also about to sell out, according to GameStop.
“I just received word that yes, it is sold out online and about to be sold out in stores as well,” a GameStop spokesperson told GamesBeat. “It wasn’t as of 10 minutes ago, but should be any minute.”
We asked Nintendo if it will have an allotment of the Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL editions that available on launch day without a preorder and are waiting for a response.
