Reports came in throughout the weekend that GameStop was still holding pre orders for the Duck Hunt, R.O.B. and Mr. Game and Watch exclusive 3-pack all the way up to Monday evening. In addition to this, the 3-Pack made its way on to the GameStop website for pre order as well. As many of you know, the 3-Pack was initially available for pre order in very large quantities, with some stores receiving 50+ pre orders.
So what does this mean for the future?
The 3-Pack release, along with Dark Pit and Palutena, was one of the easiest releases for fans to secure their favorite characters. Dark Pit was readily available for almost all of his release day in many Best Buy stores across the country, and Palutena remained on Amazon.com for over an hour on her release. To an outsider, that may still seem like a small window to get your figures. However, compared to a twenty minute window at 3am (Looking at you, Walmart.com), this is a very positive thing and is hopefully a sure sign of good things to come. It may have taken the big N a whole year, but they’re finally kicking it into gear! Let’s just hope these 3-Pack pre orders hold true…
