Those of you who pre-ordered their limited edition copies of Zero Escape 3: Zero Time Dilemma through Amazon and have been freaking out that it hasn’t arrived in the mail yet can rest a little easier today, as the retail juggernaut is attempting to make things right. Emails have been sent out apologizing for the bonus watch’s unexpected delay and broken street day delivery promise. For those affected, a $10 promotional certificate is being added to your Amazon account and will automatically be applied towards your next eligible purchase.


As for the game itself, stock is currently fairly limited with more trickling in with each passing day. Aksys and Amazon are working together to assure that the game will be shipped to consumers continuously as they receive them, with the bonus watch to ship separately sometime in the foreseeable future.

Here’s the full transcript of the email:
