GameStop Delays Mega Man Protection Kit *UPDATE 2*

The Mega Man DSi protection kit is seeing a small delay. According to GameStop's listing, the accessory will ship to stores on June 23rd as opposed to today, June 16th.

Speaking of GameStop, I've received word from my local store manager that the DS Lite version of the kit, will not be available in stores, for now at least. At this time, the only means of finding the DSL version is through Capcom's exclusive bundle.

UPDATE: Kit has been bumped up again, listing now shows as June 23rd date. Thanks, Kyouya Garyuu.

UPDATE 2: GameStop's site no longer lists a ship date, the item is now classified as "available." Go get it!

  1. Don't have a DSi yet, but gonna pick this up for when I do get it. Plus I could use the SD card right now. I'm stuck witha 256 mb card.

  3. June 23? SCORE!! That's my bday, hopefully there's some at the EB Games here.

    I wonder if these things just work on the DSi, or if they'll work on the DS lite too... im sure they do.

  4. I wonder what speed those SD cards are. I had to buy a 60x Sd card for my wii for it to NOT take 10 minutes to copy an N64 game over.

  5. BTW, does anyone ever get the feeling capcom is hard up for money? Like with the press kits, where they were selling them for $50 a pop, I mean I can kind of see with Megaman and the SF kits, but that Res Evil kit was a joke. Then there's the resident evil wii blaster on their store which is $10 higher than gamestop's price (how sad is that?) with a description about how rare it is. Are they trying to start their own mini-ebay site?

  6. Oh yeah, then of course there is the craptastic Capcom Unity card with it's zillion fees they don't tell you about until you get the card or dig through the FAQ to find them.

  7. Just a random question: Why would the Nintendo Ds-Lite Special edition Kit come with a SD card?

  9. Went to two different gamestops today. They were NOT in stores. Hell, when I went to ask them they said they haven't heard anything about it nor could find anything on it through the computers. It will most likely come out near the game's release.
