I've pre-purchased games from Amazon before and normally they offer free release date shipping so that the game arrives the same day it hits the streets, to compete with Gamestop and other physical stores. However, I notice Super Mario 3D Land doesn't have this option? Is it a mistake or a glitch? Or does this game not have release date shipping? I tried contacting Amazon Live support, but... well... outsourced customer support...

November 13th is a Sunday. Mail doesn't deliver on Sundays. Therefore, if you want it on Day 1 then you'll have to go to Gamestop. If you have Amazon Prime you can do 1 day shipping $3.99. You should get it on Monday.

Ahhh OK, that makes sense. I'll go ahead and switch my order then. Thanks

Thanks, I was wondering whether to order or go to the store. Now I know Amazon will lose my business (and again next month on the 4th when Mario Kart is also released on a Sunday!).

Personally, I would rather just order this game and wait a day than rush out and fight for a copy at a local store.

if you place a preorder at a store, I don't think it would require much of a 'fight' to get it .... I will be at BB when the doors open Sunday a.m. .... can hardly wait to play the new Mario! :-) just 5 days to go.

Yeah, it sucks that Nintendo releases games on Sundays here...really annoying, but I'll keep my order from Amazon. I got a test to study for next week that I need no distractions from, and I can save the tax money.

Nintendo always does Sunday releases on their games so it's moots out getting it at release from Amazon sadly :(

The least they can do is have it ready for us by friday to ship out and get to us by monday. if i wasn't saving 7 dollars including the tax i would say screw it and get it at gamestop. amz gets my money this time due to the gold box deal but tues day shipment for a sunday release sucks especially considering i am prime

I've pre-ordered a couple Nintendo games through Amazon. Usually it says I'll get it the following Wednesday, but I've come home to find them sitting there waiting for me on Monday. I have stuff to do tomorrow anyway...Heh.

I'm pretty sure that Nintendo came up with this "Sunday release" idea in order to discourage online sales. Because they know full well that if they can get a 3DS owner to go to the physical store to buy it, there's a much better chance that they'll decide to buy more than just the pre-ordered game. People don't have as many "impulse buys" when they're shopping online.

I agree with Mystic!! I gotta study and if I get this game tomorrow I'll just forget about my homework.
