Where can I find Fire Emblem on launch day?

My Best Buy pre-order was backordered and I am afraid I won't get it until next week.

Did you preorder online? You could go check the store that day.

If not try any other store. I highly highly highly doubt this game will sell out everywhere. I can't remember the last time a game did.

Well, if other places are backordered, you can always purchase a copy from the Nintendo eShop! In fact, you can be among the first to start playing FE:A because it is released at the eShop at midnight on launch day. I'd do that, and then return my Best Buy game unopened when it does come in. ;)

I pre-order online and arranged a store pick up. This happened to me with Ni no Kuni as well but it was my fault for pre-ordering so late.

I don't think you will be able to find it anywhere frankly. Everybody is having problems.

Cancelled my Gamestop preorder since they couldn't fulfil it on the 4th. (or 5th, or 6th. or 7th) don't really like Gamestop anyway, so this pretty much ends my last reason for going there at all (Hey might as well order online from Amazon if I can't get it day 1 in store)

Bestbuy said they had it ready for pick up today, decided to order from them because of that, then as soon as I had payed for it they sent me an Email saying "LOL we don't really have it in stock you need to call customer service to change your order"

Well at least their customer service guy was helpful. but he couldn't do anything because their computers are all messed up. so now I have to call back on Tuesday to get it resolved.

Basically it killed my buzz for this game, if they don't have it fixed by Tuesday I'll just ask for a refund and order on Amazon instead. I think from now on Amazon will be the only place I try to pre-order from. I might get it later, but I get it later with everybody else also, so why drive to the store when the store can come to me so to speak.

Try the Super Walmarts? Might be a headache trying to get the employees to care/look but it could be possible. Call all the supercenters around you, I know 1 out of the 3 walmarts in my area has a high chance of having it.

eShop. It's the future. Or go to Wal-Mart.

Download it from the eshop in about 9 hours. I hope.
