On one hand, Iwata is preaching to the choir. With sellouts at every outlet that offered pre-orders of limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL hardware and games with folks also waiting outside of Target on launch day to pick up consoles that were on store shelves, it’s clear that the limited editions performed really well. There is a chance they could have performed even better if there wasn’t an ongoing strike on the west coast, which Iwata confirmed has affected shipments of the New Nintendo 3DS XL. This is exciting news, even if we don’t have any sort of exact figures right now. We only hope they can get more units here to satisfy the rest of the demand.
