Last week EB Games (a.k.a Gamestop) were accepting pre-orders for both Donkey Kong 3D and Kirby 3D. Neither of these titles have been announced by Nintendo, but this didn’t stop certain retail locations from displaying sample boxes advertising both games as ‘coming soon’ and to ‘pre-order now’.
An inside source within the company has confirmed to us that head office “ordered them to remove all boxes and/or displays of Donkey Kong 3D and Kirby 3D“. We are unable to confirm whether it was simply head office reacting to the recent news or that Nintendo requested the boxes to be removed.
It looks like fans of either series will have to wait until Nintendo officially announces these titles before they can pre-purchase a copy ( and that’s only if they do).
Here’s an additional source confirming similar information.
User, Scrap69, on the DK Vine forum has posted an image of promotional boxes at EB Games apparently advertising preorders for a new Donkey Kong 3D game for 3DS. It is not uncommon for retail stores to create their own placeholders for games, so it is strictly rumor at this point as there has been no announcement for a new Donkey Kong game on 3DS.
To add fuel to the fire, multiplayer.com has a preorder page up for Donkey Kong Country 3D, complete with box art.
We’ll keep you posted with updates on what might be the next Donkey Kong handheld adventure.
