GameStop Gets Exclusive Fire Emblem: Awakening Pre-Order Art Book

December 21st, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Fire Emblem Awakening Bonus Art Book

GameStop is offering a limited edition character art book to people who pre-order the game from them before it hits on February 4.

Sadly, the book being given out isn’t the Knight of Iris art book that recently came out in Japan. However, the GameStop book will also feature character designs for Awakening‘s cast.

According to GameStop’s site, the books are only available while supplies last. So if you really want to fawn over the game’s flowy heroes, it’d be best to get that order in now.

GameStop Store Listing Has Pokémon Black/White 2 Dated for October

April 24th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

If this software listing from GameStop is to be believed, Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 may be coming to North America on October 2.

It’s very possible that this is merely a placeholder date so GameStop can take preorders on the game, but it does line up with Nintendo’s announced “fall 2012” release date.

Reminder: GameStop Giving Away An Exclusive Kid Icarus AR Card Tomorrow

April 13th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

GameStop is hosting a demo event for Kid Icarus: Uprising tomorrow at participating stores and they’ll be giving away an exclusive AR card to anyone that attends.

It’s a great opportunity to try out the game if you haven’t yet, but for people who already have the game, it’s worth checking out just for the free card.

The retailer has a store locator set up to find for the nearest store taking part in the demo session. Card supplies are limited, so it’s best to head out early if that’s your only reason for going.

GameStop Selling Download Codes for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus

March 26th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

With 3D Classics: Kid Icarus currently unavailable for purchase in the eShop, there may actually be an advantage to buying eShop games from GameStop.

The gaming retailer is charging $6 for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus download codes. Not bad for anyone who missed out on getting the game by pre-ordering Kid Icarus: Uprising.

In fact, since Best Buy is still offering Uprising for $30, you can put the $10 you save towards buying the 3D Classics version and save yourself a few bucks overall.

GameStop Ending GameCube Trade-Ins Next Month

March 23rd, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Beginning April 2, GameStop will no longer take trade-ins for GameCube hardware, software and accessories.

While GameStop is notorious for paying out next to nothing for trade-ins, the real disappointment is that this means it’ll become a little harder to find GameCube games in the future.

Now’s the time to pick up any games you may have been on the fence about buying, since it may not be there next month and they won’t be restocking any more used copies.

GameStop Now Selling eShop Download Codes

March 19th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

If you wanted to add a few more steps in your purchase of PushMo and Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, GameStop is now offering download codes for both eShop titles.

It seems odd for GameStop to do this when it’s more convenient to hop online and buy it directly off the eShop, but then again, it does give customers something to spend their store credit on.
