It seems scalpers haven't wasted any time snapping up the Special Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for Nintendo Switch.

Not long after the item went live on the American My Nintendo Store (for a second time), new listings began popping up on websites like eBay - asking for double the price and even higher sums of money. Here's a look at some of them:

My Nintendo Store users in the US have so far reported mixed results when it comes to securing Xenoblade 3 pre-orders.

Some have had ongoing website issues and appear to have missed out, while others have been lucky enough to get an order in after incredibly long wait times. There was a limit of one Special Edition per person in place. Here's social media's reaction:

In other parts of the world, securing a copy of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special / Collector's Edition seems to have been slightly easier. Locations like Australia have already offered the fancier physical version, but there'll be a slight delay with the shipping. And in Japan, Nintendo is apparently leaving pre-orders open and will produce as many units as required.

It's unclear at this stage if Nintendo of America will do another round of Special Edition pre-orders available for those who missed out, but if we hear anything, we'll be sure to let you know. Were you able to get the Special / Collector's Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 in the end? Tell us down below.
