This is much cooler than expected. I preordered Fantasy Life and got my email right at midnight. In the email, it gave me a download code AND a link to redeem the game automatically and send it to my console. This means that you can gift preorders AND autosend games to the 3DS as well. Very cool!

I'm chiming in again to add a few more details. One, the website does not apparently see your eShop credit, which is disappointing and something I hope they fix (unless it's only a problem for preorders). Two, you're still limited to Mastercard or Visa. I wasn't able to use a Discover credit card to make the purchase.

This satisfies two wants for me, being able to preorder digital titles from the eShop and not having to use the appalling on screen keyboard on my 3DS to enter my card number.

I just preordered Fantasy Life, a 3DS title, and can confirm that the email message I received specified the following:

  • A download code will be sent to my email on the day of release, starting at midnight
  • My card will not be charged until the code is sent.
  • Preorders can be canceled.
  • Preorders can be gifted (implying that the game will NOT automatically download onto my system).

Until I get home, I won't be able to confirm if it knew I had eShop credit or not, because I can't remember if I used it all up last week. I'd like to know if the web store interface works with the deluxe digital promotion. I suspect it would, but it wasn't specifically addressed.

diastelo commented on Hardware Review: 3DS Circle Pad Pro XL:

@Galactus eForCity and Everydaysource both sell replacement styluses for the 3DS XL through Amazon. The eForCity ones I got are retractable "metal" ones, and the Everydaysource ones are randomly chosen colors in a 12 pack. Both fit perfectly in the slot.
