Nintendo will be releasing the special Zelda 3DS XL system in Japan in late December. It was previously announced for Europe, and a GameStop Black Friday ad leak confirmed the handheld for the US as well.

Amazon Japan started taking pre-orders for the Zelda 3DS XL earlier today. Just 700 units were available for pre-order, and within minutes, consumers snatched them all up. Given the small amount available, that should come as no surprise.

Amazon and Nintendo have long maintained a certain “spat”, so to speak. For some unknown reasons, the company’s hardware was never stocked and sold directly. If you were interested in purchasing any of Nintendo’s systems from Amazon, you would need to do so through a third-party seller.

But now it seems there may have been a breakthrough between the two. One eagle-eyed NeoGAF user noticed that 3DS XL systems are being shipped and sold by Amazon..

It doesn’t appear that the situation has been completely remedied, as the Wii U and 2DS still can’t be purchased straight from the retailer. Still, this looks like a good sign!
