So you're basically getting a better deal if you buy a figure from a series Nintendo cares about?

It's a shame those awesome Captain Falcon, Ness, Pit etc. figures will be left collecting dust down the line.

Edit: It's also interesting how Nintendo are still advertising the pre-production, high quality Amiibo figures. Because there's nothing misleading about that.

It's a Nintendo game, so it's nothing to do with a huge amount of demand. This is certainly another Nintendo supply issue.

I went into Grainger Games in Liverpool before and they had plenty of copies left, for what it's worth.

Now THAT is what I wanted to hear!
Hopefully we'll hear how they plan on making up for the lack of GC buttons. I guess it only functions as a Pro in games where the extra buttons aren't necessary, such as Mario KArt and 3D World.

@RainbowGazelle Not quite the reference I was going for. ;P
It's a bit harsh to say the 55% ruined Scotland. People vote for what's safe and familair, and this referendum was no different. Scotland stood to gain no matter what the outcome.
I'm anti-monarchy and therefore believe there is no reason why Scotland should be united with the rest of Britain. But I didn't get a vote, so...

@RupeeClock I also contacted them. It makes sense for them to stock it and I'm sure they'll recognise the demand. I'd like to get it from a trusted seller like Play Asia rather than hunt it down on ebay or whatever.
EDIT: however it may not be easy for them just to stock an Aussie product. They may need an office in Australia or something...

@brewsky I don't see it as despicable, just a little sly. It may be a grey area but I feel it does violate Nintendo's own guidlines on "good" DLC.

It isn't going to stop me buying the game. It comes at a budget price in Europe, so the DLC isn't horrible, really.



C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (Europe):

@Tigus Not true. The game being released in the West is Fantasy Life Link, under the title Fantasy Life.

In a Japanese game store you can buy Fantasy Life Link, including all DLC content, at regular retail price. In a western game store you can buy Fantasy Life Link at regular retail price, but it does not come with the DLC.

Nintendo defines bad DLC as content that has been held back from release, cut away from the game in an attempt to mislead the consumer into paying more. I think this falls under that definition.



C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (Europe):

@Thecoolmana777 I would have accepted that as a gesture of fairness towards Japanese players, as with the Fire Emblem DLC.

But I've looked into it and the truth is far worse than I imagined. This is DLC Nintendo or Level 5 (either way Nintendo is publishing so they at least supported this) have cut out of the Japanese release.
We are being charged extra for content that has been cut from the game and that Japanese gamers got for free.
Thanks a lot, Nintendo.

I'm guessing the four codes thing is for multiplayer battles.
I will be fervently checking my emails all day to check for a code! Though in Europe it's already evening so when are they planning on sending them out?
