Production of the Nintendo 3DS Game Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori Increased to Meet Demands

The Nintendo 3DS game Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori was released on Nov. 8, 2012. The game has achieved record sales beyond expectations and supplies have now been low for some time. The reason for the low supplies is due to the game’s use of SLC (Single Level Cell). Unlike other 3DS software, SLC processes at a higher speed and is more reliable, but is more expensive and requires ROM cards with Nand-type flash memory, which are less common. Because the game has sold better than anticipated, the parts have gone out of stock.

There are three ways to get your hands on the game other than purchasing the software in the box. The first way is to purchase a download card and download the game from the Nintendo eShop. The second way is to purchase a download code online and then download the game from the Nintendo eShop. The third way is to purchase the game directly from the Nintendo eShop. These methods are great for people who want to get the game immediately and are not interested in collecting the game packaging.

Also, a special Nintendo 3DS system called the "Nintendo 3DS LL Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori Pack" is now on sale. The pack comes with an SD card containing the game. In-game presents which are available for limited periods will be made available again when the software shortage ends.
