Luigi's Mansion - haven't had this much trouble finding a game since Wave Race!

Holy crap was going around for the past two days trying to find a copy and NOTHING...only digital downloads. Within 15min I have two Wal Marts, a Target, three Gamestops, Toys R Us and a Best Buy, (much more than that 30-60 min out) and finally after deciding to check "one more store" several times I only had one store left anyway. FINALLY at Wal Mart I found the last copy in my whole area and only got one there because I remembered sometimes they put new released on the end cap of the gaming section. I checked there and hidden in the far bottom left space well behind the LM's display there was a lone copy left.

Anybody else have issues finding a copy? (btw I was panicking because I mistakenly thought the end date for the free game promo was ending today in a day or two, lol).

i swear nintendo is creating shortages with certain games so you will buy digital

Why not just... Buy on Amazon?

I was playing Luigi's Mansion 2 in my living room about 15 minutes after the midnight launch, guess where I found it. I'll give you a hint: There was no line, or need to pre-order.

Indeed, a lot of other people seem to be doing just that, seeing how it's currently their best-selling video game-related item.

As I said I was panicking because I thought the end date for the promo was coming up in a day or two for some reason. Even so, sometimes when you can't find something like this it makes it a challenge, lol. After the first couple stores didn't have it I made it my mission to find it.

I feel your paaaaain. I looked on Best Buy, Walmart, Target and Gamestop's websites looking for a place around me that had it...had to drive to a Gamestop 35 miles away to snag the last copy they had -_-

alot of it has to do with the game scoring incredibly well across multiple reviewers, very good word of mouth, and this sale that allows you to get a free downloaded game.

Why not just buy it from the E-Shop. That's how I got mine. I figure it is a good enough game that I will be replaying it for quite some time.
