Forums - Gaming Discussion - Amazon: Atelier Totori ''very popular'', ''a surprise sellout'' and ''outstanding orders''

Tagged games:

So I pre-ordered Atelier Totori from amazon.ca a while ago and it was supposed to come out september 27th. It's now october 2nd and they haven't shipped it yet so I wrote them to ask what was going on and here's what they answered:

 

" Hello from Amazon.ca.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused.

The item "Atelier Totori: The Adventurer Of Arland - Game + Artbook + Cd" has been proven to be a very popular item and has become a surprise sellout.

When you placed your order, we believed we had access to more copies. However, all of our suppliers have rapidly sold out of this item.

We have many customer orders for this item and we're waiting for more copies from our suppliers. We are filling orders as quickly as we can on a first-come, first-served basis.

Major distributors have thousands of copies on order from the publisher, awaiting the next print run. As soon as more copies become available, we'll be able to fulfill outstanding orders.

Meanwhile, I can assure you that we are working hard to obtain this item for you and we will ship it as soon as we are able to obtain it. This means that we will ship the item as soon as we receive it from our suppliers even if the estimated ship date has still not arrived.

In light of this uncertainty, we will understand if you would prefer to cancel your order. As of yet we have made no changes.""

It's nice to see that the lack of big budget JRPGs allow for smaller developers to thrive.

Note: Atelier Rorona sold 25k FW and 150k LT in NA. The Americas Preview expects Atelier Totori to do 20k FW.

I ordered mine from NISA. They sent me an email stating that were having supply issues with the manufacturer. So mine was shipped a few days late.



It's nice to see a niche title selling, what seems, well.



thats great news. a great game sells out and thats a plus.



O___o.. now thats... a suprise. if NISA was only able to ship 1k Copies due to manufacturing Problems, it seems to be obvious, since the NIS Fanbase is a bit bigger than this, but if they had a decent stock, and it sold out, then.. well, good for Nippon ichi, since, IMO, they deserve every kind of success possible, since they are one of the very few that bring almost every game theyve made over to the states, and more often than not to europe!

 

PS: if someone with influence for any Website available is here, put this into an article and send it at N4G lol! =)

Well i guess even if they were held back by problems, my guess is that they prefered to send what they had of copie's to people who ordered directly from NISA first, since its more of a Profit .

 

Btw, i hate your signature.

Cuz' i am european and have to wait 3 days more.

 

Ugh.:D

The same thing happened to me with Disgaea 4. Gamestop ran out of their preorders and Best Buy ran out the day the game came out.

I'm hoping that means things are on the upswing for NISA, which makes me really happy because NISA deserve to have things go their way after they were having such a rough time a few years ago.



I can't wait to get this game.



Playstation All-Stars is one of the best games I've played this gen, and is the most fun I've had in a game this gen.

i love these games, they're very unique and very fun, i am very happy to hear this.
