Has anyone pre-ordered Fire Emblem Awakening from Newegg? For some reason, the release date is listed as 2/08/13... -_-

I don't think they've ever been so behind like this before.

Pretty sure all of these problems have been because Nintendo messed up somewhere. Nothing to do with Newegg.

Amazon hasn't shipped either. Neither has Gamestop.

Yeah, Nintendo screwed this up bad.

Have any other 3DS games had this problem? Maybe Nintendo was half-assing this release because they thought it wouldn't sell well.

The last "unknown" game Nintendo hyped up like this was Kid Icarus: Uprising, and it did not have any problems.

And I don't see how they would think it wouldn't sell well, since they've been hyping it up like crazy.

Maybe there is a problem with artbook availability?
I don't think it's copy availability because I was able to walk into my local walmart last night and was able to grab a copy Fire Emblem off the shelf (well, the employee did, but you know what I mean)

I'm not so sure about that. I think the problem might vary by region because I got an email from GameStop that my game shipped this past Monday

Well, it seems to me like it may be understocked. Many stores are already selling out. I hope Nintendo makes an official statement regarding what's happening right now.''

Hmm, that may be the problem.

Ill add that I ended up ordering the FE 3ds and a physical game. Like I stated, the game is already shipped (for me) and should arrive by tomorrow.

The 3ds, on the other hand, got its release date changed to Feb6 on the GameStop website. That one has yet to ship. I guess my point is that the 3ds got an official delay of 2 days (at least according to GameStop)
