Will they prevent a second Blaze Attack on the servers?
After the first attempt went poorly, Nintendo of America is taking another crack at opening preorders for the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 special edition.
A specific time was not communicated in Nintendo’s Twitter post announcing the sale, just that it would occur “on 6/30”. The preorders will be limited to one per account for this round, after being capped at two in the round on June 8.
The first attempt was marred by a severe overload of the North American store’s servers, even after the implementation of a queue for access to the site. Other territories had the presale for the limited edition contents occur without incident.
Pre-purchase for the #XenobladeChronicles3 Special Edition will be available on the My Nintendo Store on 6/30.
Please note that you may be placed in a waiting room as pre-order requests are processed, and the purchase limit has been set at 1 per account. pic.twitter.com/g6bOJqcGwy
