WTF Nintendo.... Metroid Samus Returns Limited edition for Europe only....

Seriously.... why aren't we getting this?!

if I don't notice it came up, I'm hoping some of our friends in Europe.... looking at you escaflowne, posts that it comes up! Cause I really want this, will have to order it from game or amazon uk, since they're the only European sites that ship to Canada without horrible shipping prices.

Luckily, Amazon throughout Europe ships to Canada, so I'm hoping I have lots of chances of getting it without them running out.

The UK does *not* ship games to Canada, just a heads up.

I've tried before and it's how I ended up using Zavvi and game.co.uk for a bunch of stuff.

You might have to resort to France or Germany. I got my special edition of Ni No Kuni from the German site because of the horrendous fuckup from Namco for special orders.

I've already ordered lots of stuff from amazon in terms of games, it's how I usually got GBA and DS games that were translated over there and not over here.

For some reason, even tho it says it can't, it goes through and I get them lol, its the same with amazon japan too.

That's weird.

Was it Amazon directly or through a private seller on Amazon?

Amazon themselves.

It's the same from amazon in the states, normally had it you couldn't do it, but I just put in my info and placed the order, they never canceled or blocked or anything, I just got the stuff.

one time tho, I put in the order and put in the info like normally, but in country, I put USA and then in shipping notes I put, I don't live in the USA, please send to Canada, I will pay extra for shipping.... 2 weeks later, I got it lol.


anddddd yup, I just tried on Mario rabbids, it worked and it said doesn't ship to Canada on it haha.


http://imgur.com/a/3zEr0 image here that shows my order, just edited out some of my details on the order. I canceled the order right afterwards taking the screen shot.


amiibos are the same thing, says can't be shipped to Canada, but the skyward sword and MM link amiibos just shipped today from them.

Nintendo Europe are pretty good at doing special editions for games like Hyrule Warriors, Fatal Frame 4, Kid Icarus and aload more though I'd admit I don't know wether America got them as well.

Yeah, this will be bought up quickly and scalped on ebay. People who really want it won't have a chance like all Nintendo collectors editions.

My bad. Even though I imported it from Japan I always forget about it. I meant FF5 (on the WiiU).
