150,000 Copies For Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D at Launch
Pre-order or no genre redefining classic for you!
Just a tiny update on our previous report of Nintendo's plans to ship Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D in small quantities. The same blog that provided that original report, the always reliable Sinobi, is now saying that Nintendo will be shipping less than 150,000 units for launch.
Additionally, Sinobi is saying that pre-orders for the game have "exploded" following initial reports of small shipments. Thankfully, Nintendo is apparently leaving open the possibility of increased shipments, as if released at this level, the game would surely see shortages.
Sinobi originally speculated that Nintendo had decided on the small shipment in order to avoid the bargain bin placement that past Zelda faced following their launches.
