“Please proceed to verify with main retailers for availability”

In case you missed it, Metroid Prime Remastered (or remake, relying on the way you see it) dropped digitally on February 8, and bodily on February 22 within the US. Nicely, it was supposed to reach bodily on February 22, however many retailers didn’t get shipments, and people who wished a duplicate discovered themselves inundated with sell-out runs from bots and scalpers. It’s the newest in a string of Nintendo bodily launch drama, however there may be mild on the finish of the tunnel for this story.

Nintendo of America truly supplied a press release to the outlet Nintendo Life, who famous that they’re conscious of the problem and intend to maintain the sport in inventory (at the least for the close to future). Right here’s the complete assertion, courtesy of Nintendo Life:

“We’ll do every little thing we will to satisfy the sturdy demand for the product. Please proceed to verify with main retailers for availability.

It additionally insinuates that this isn’t an especially restricted one-time run, so it is best to have one other probability to seize it when you’re perking up proper now and realized you desire a copy.

As for me, my launch-ordered Amazon copy nonetheless hasn’t shipped, however is slated to come back in round March 7 by way of March 9. That’s just a few weeks after the aforementioned bodily launch, however at the least it’s semi-locked in!
