That's the greatest Nintendo LE I've ever seen.

And it's going to sell out in minutes.

I'm so happy they got rid of the ridiculous USK logo for special edition copies. Much more inclined to buy these now.

Watch it cost half the price of a switch, then like fire emblem echoes, dont sell out of the limited editions due to that(again).

Fire Emblem Echoes was so pricey because it had two Amiibos.

As I've been saying since the Wii/DS generation.

Fuck NOA.

Hopefully I'll be able to buy one on Ebay in a year or two at only double regular price.

Outside of FE Fates, it hasn't been too difficult to get a Nintendo LE in Europe.

I'd like the SteelBook more if it actually lined up with the proportions of a GB cart. It looks way too fat.

What is up with NoE's fascination for making these be able to hang on a peg?

It's funny to think the 3DS has had more Metroid games than NES, Game Boy, Super Nintendo, N64 and is on par with GameCube, GBA, DS and Wii (unless you count Trilogy as a seperate game). This is a beautiful set.

I was looking around if any site already had a preorder up and found this on amazon.de, could be €70?

That's how retailers can hang them up. Otherwise those games will get a bad position on the floor where nobody will see them.

That's what they sold the Fire Emblem Echoes SE for, which came with two amiibos. EUR 60 seems more likely.

That's the standard edition.
