Japanese retail blog, Sinobi, has an interesting post up regarding distribution of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in Japan. Sinobi reports that the Nintendo 3DS game is being given a very small first shipment.
Japanese 3DS owners that hope to pick up Ocarina of Time may want to pre-order, Sinobi says. Amazon.jp have already discounted the game’s price by 18%.
Sinobi appears to have indulged in a bit of speculation that has now been taken down from the website. Initially, the proposed theory was that Nintendo would like to avoid another situation like The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, which was sent out in considerable supply, and was soon relegated to the bargain bin as a result.
