The hunt is on today for the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL, here's what I found

Only a few in stock at each store

[Update: Target seems to have some extra stock online from dropped pre-orders. Check now (try the mobile link too) and throughout the day to see if anything pops up. GameStop is also taking orders on a $250 bundle with the game and Majora's Mask-themed New 3DS.]

Another big videogame product launch, another retailer hunt from yours truly.

This morning the New 3DS XL debuted across the country in the US, and thousands of fans are looking to get their hands on the coveted Majora's Mask 3DS. As many of you know it sold out in minutes in-store at GameStop, and online at Best Buy, among other stores. I got word that select stores would be getting shipments in this morning, so I headed out to three Targets, one Best Buy, and called many more locations.

The verdict? Unless you're in a rural area, your chances of getting one are very slim, even if you go at opening. All of the stores I contacted obtained three to four, and sold out immediately after the doors opened. According to one shop, customers waited outside the night before to snag one of the three of its stock.

As you can see in the gallery below, there were plenty of standard New 3DS units in stock, with more in the back to sustain all-day customer traffic. If you want to see off-hand if any stores in your area have a unit, check this website with the following DCPI number -- 207-01-0402. Good luck!

None of the Target representatives or managers I spoke to had any information on restocking opportunities, but as always, any updates we obtain on the situation will be placed here. Rest assured though stores are getting some stock, so it never hurts to call.

In other online related news my Best Buy order is preparing to ship, so many of you out there who didn't have yours canceled already may have a package on the way later today.
