how can you check if it's cancelled? also sorry for all the questions XD
If you sign into bestbuy.com you should be able to see it in order status or shopping history or someplace like that

Is your preorder still valid?  Best Buy cancels my preorder every time they change the status to 'coming soon' like it is for the metroid amiibos atm.

Having worked at Best Buy, I can confirm that people are not supposed to be able to pre-order amiibos. It's really dumb that their website STILL let's people try to place pre-orders, but for the two years I worked there we absolutely would not let amiibos be pre-ordered since we didn't actually know how many we were getting or something stupid like that. It might've changed over the last few years, but it sounds like the same problem as before.

If that's the case then i'm gonna be really sad ;-;. the order hasn't been canceled though. at least not yet

To be honest it might be different now than when I worked there, but people would get so pissed off at us all the time. Maybe upper management finally got the memo that they'd make a lot of money if they just let people preoder

They put it up and take it down over and over and cancel everything that people pre-ordered during the short periods that they were available.  I complained to them when they did this with the Zelda amiibos and they said it was a system glitch.  If it is a glitch, then they don't seem keen on fixing it and it affects a bunch of different amiibos.

well as far as i know my order hasn't been canceled....yet. but now i'm really paranoid that it will be
Some people were able to get an order in.  I think if yours was going to be canceled then it would have been already.  I wouldn't worry about it too much.
I downloaded the game today.  It won't unlock until 9/15, but you can still read the digital instruction manual.  Looks pretty rad.
Is it kickin' rad?
Fuckin' A it is!  Totally tubular, too.
this might sound weird but sometimes you remind me of someone else I used to know online ...
I like turtles.
My hope that the special edition will be available for pre-order on Amazon is fading fast, and GameStop wants and extra ten dollars for day one arrival. :|
let it gooo
I like turtles.
I would normally just suck it up and wait for it to ship but it releases on a Friday and I'd love to be able to binge it on the weekend.
I too am holding out for Amazon.  I want the special ed. and the amiibo 2-pack (shakur).

That does sound weird.  Not the part about me reminding you of someone but the part of knowing someone online.  Is that really possible?

this is darkly accurate, because it turns out I didn't know this person anything like as well as I thought I did, and they ended up fucking me up quite badly. but I've probably spammed up this thread with irrelevancy enough at this point.

a few previews about this seem to have been published recently ... neither of these have much interesting to say at this point though:

https://www.destructoid.com/metroid-samus-returns-is-surprisingly-old-school-and-i-love-that-about-it-458470.phtml

this one is a bit more indepth, but contains some map analysis so might be a bit spoilery:

Everything I'm hearing about the game in terms of control is very encouraging.  I've also heard praise for the animations used for samus as they appear/react flawless.  Both of these things were also praised to hell when Super Metroid came out, and they're part of what made Super so amazing. 

With an awesome looking/feeling and agile samus, the other thing I pray for is a clever map.  Hopefully as clever as Zero Mission.  I don't mean just the layout, but the careful design that was just loose enough to give you options in the order you progressed but you had to work for them. Hopefully the game isn't totally linear like Fusion.
hot damn I was just able to preorder the amiibo two-pack on best buy and it looks like it went through.  I had the special edition in the cart too but it wouldn't take.

I thought the new amiibos unlocked a fusion suit hard mode etc.  But the official site says nothing of the sort.  did Nintendo change their mind about needing amiibo to unlock content?  I think they said the amiibo would unlock content at E3.  Is that far back enough for them to have changed their mind about it?

Someone is developing homebrew for hacked 3DS's that emulates an amiibo being scanned.  It is in early stages and only works for a few games at this time.
https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-dev-noamii-amiibo-emulation-within-3ds.479017/

Since I have an old 3DS the above method is really the best option for me to use for this game, even though I am buying the related pair of amiibo.
