Those that have placed a Nintendo 3DS XL pre-order with GAME will be delighted to learn that the specialist retailer has been given permission to deliver the handheld to you a day ahead of its scheduled release.
Such news was confirmed through an email sent yesterday evening to pre-order holders, which you can read below.
Online pre-orders will be dispatched in time for delivery on Friday, whereas those with in-store pre-orders will be able to collect it from whichever store this was placed.
We always thought that releasing the revised handheld model on a Saturday seemed a little odd…
You can read our thoughts on the Nintendo 3DS XL within our hands-on preview.
The full email from GAME reads as follows:
Good news! The Nintendo 3DS XL you preordered will now be available a day earlier on Friday 27th July!
If you preordered in-store this means you will be able to pick up your 3DS XL from the store where you placed your preorder on Friday 27th!
If you preordered online your order will be dispatched in time for delivery on Friday 27th.*
We hope you enjoy your new console, if you haven’t already got a charger for it make sure you order one so you don’t miss out on any gaming! http://www.game.co.uk/en/official-nintendo-3ds-xl-ac-adaptor-180324
