Original story [Thu 30th Jun, 2022 01:25 BST]: Earlier this month, pre-orders for the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special Edition on Switch went live across the globe.
Unfortunately, there were some technical issues on the My Nintendo Store in the US due to the high volume of traffic. Nintendo apologised for the inconvenience and promised it would make the Special Edition of the game available at a later date.
Nintendo of America's official social channels have now provided an update, revealing the second round of pre-orders will go live today at some point on June 30th. No exact time has been provided, so be sure to stay alert.
Users will be placed in a waiting room on the My Nintendo Store as pre-order requests are processed and there'll be a limit of one Special Edition per person:
Pre-purchase for the #XenobladeChronicles3 Special Edition will be available on the My Nintendo Store on 6/30.
Please note that you may be placed in a waiting room as pre-order requests are processed, and the purchase limit has been set at 1 per account.
