I can't find it in stores and no, I simply won't get the digital version since I like to physically own my games. Anyways, is there any news on a future shipment or anything of that sort?

Because demand for this series has never been this high before, going off how previous entries were basically not even on the radar.

it's not really Nintendo's fault you would rather wait for a physical copy rather then download it and play it now

So you can download it and give more money to them.

It's funny how the people who whine the loudest about the common problems with physical releases (low print runs, manufacturing constraints, shipping errors) are the same one that refuse to shop digitally, where these problems don't exist.

I pre-ordered mine through Amazon and before its release, there was a delay. Not sure how long that delay was going to be but it went past the day it was released and I just could not wait any longer so I cancelled my pre-order and just downloaded the game.
Now I am very pleased!

Better for them than risking the chance of wasting money on making game cards that might just sit around until they become a bargain title. I would imagine digital is easier for them to track, and they don't have to worry about losing money or having to discount. :p

Some people don't want to use Nintendo's idiotic online system just yet.

Some people don't want to take up memory space for a retail game when so many good eShop games come out regularly.

It's funny how narrow-minded people are about online and physical copies.

I emailed Nintendo about the lack of physical copies and they said they are still actively printing the game. Hopefully should be more common in stores soon!
