Close to 1 AM, I finally had it with trying keep hitting the login button to see if I could shove my way in.  I attempted to contact a Sony rep, via chat, and this is how it all transpired…

First off, I am happy for anyone out there enjoying Ni No Kuni right now but I have to share my horrible experience with the Wizard’s Edition pre-order. Despite pre-ordering my copy in August 2012 for $100 dollars I have yet to receive any sort of communication from Namco Bandai regarding it’s status or shipment. Recall this special edition could only be ordered via their website.

Luckily I had saved the e-mail from when I placed the order so I was able to log in and see that my order still existed (I have read in forums and on Facebook that many others had their orders randomly cancelled on them). I even see a hold in my checking account for the purchase price but no communication from Namco or Digital River, who is supposed to be handling the shipments.

The Ni No Kuni Facebook page has exploded with angry people waiting on their Wizards Edition and then imagine my frustation when I see Namco Bandai tweet that they are making more editions available on their website! They should be taking care of the people who ordered and paid for day 1 shipping before they release more copies.

Needless to say I am a little worried about my order. Check out the thread below for more information. http://www.namcobandaigames.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=13022

Anyone else in this boat with me? What have you heard?
