It seems like scalpers wasted no time in snagging the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special Edition for Nintendo Switch.

Shortly after the item went live (for the second time) on America’s My Nintendo Store, new listings began popping up on sites like eBay, asking for double the price and even higher sums. Here’s a look at some of them:

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

Some had ongoing issues with the website and seem to have missed out, while others were lucky enough to get an order after incredibly long waits. There was a limit of one special edition per person. Here’s the social media reaction:

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

It’s currently unclear if Nintendo of America will be running another round of Special Edition pre-orders for those who missed out, but if we hear anything we’ll definitely let you know. Were you able to snag the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special / Collector’s Edition in the end? tell us below
