Bad news for some folk who have pre-ordered the Limited Edition Majora's Mask 3DS XL at Best Buy.

According to Kotaku, Best Buy has sent out emails to a number of customers in order to inform them that their pre-orders for the Majora's Mask Edition New 3DS XLs have been cancelled. It turns out that the number of pre-orders "exceeded the quantities made available."

The email reads:
