Early Access Considerations

Where offered, *Early Access is calculated from the official street date communicated on the product page and subject to our Bandai Namco Entertainment Store pre-order, shipping and return policies. See our FAQs and Terms of Service for more information.

International Pre-order delivery by Street Date Not Guaranteed

We do our absolute best to ship pre-orders so they arrive by the official street date (date listed on the product details page), but international orders cannot be guaranteed. Shipments could take up to 7 to 10 days or more to arrive depending on courier, location, and customs clearance in your country.
 

International, APO/FPO/DPO/US Territories pre-order deliveries

Shipments to these destinations can sometimes take 7 to 10 days or more depending on the carrier used, delivery address and customs clearance. Pre-orders for merchandise and apparel items are shipped as soon as they are available. The estimated date that the items will be available to ship is communicated on the product pages and may change from time to time.

For Merchandise products, release date is approximate, any changes will be updated on the product page.

International Freight Crisis and COVID-19 impact

We are currently experiencing longer than normal production and delivery lead-times due to the international pandemic and freight crisis. We are committed to delivering your pre-order as soon as we can and to being transparent in the communication of expected Street Dates for Games and Special Editions, and availability for merchandise items on our product pages and appreciate your patience and support at this time.

Placing a Pre-order / Pre-order Payments

Preorder reservations will trigger a temporary hold on funds with your payment provider for the value of your preorder reservation. Please contact your credit card provider for more information. The credit card used to confirm your pre-order reservation will not be charged for the goods until the merchandise is available to ship from our warehouse. A BANDAI NAMCO Store account and a saved credit card are required to confirm your pre-order reservation. Unfortunately, we are not able to support pre-orders through a Guest Checkout at this time.

Approximately 2 weeks before the published street date on the product page, a pre-authorization attempt of the credit card that is saved against your Account will be attempted. 

If the pre-authorization attempt fails at this time, we will cancel your pre-order reservation and you will receive 2 emails from the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Store;
(1) A cancellation of the original pre-order reservation
(2) A new unique link (valid for 48 hours) to allow you to re-checkout with an updated credit card. In the event that we are unable to process a payment for a pre-order reservation we are not able to guarantee availability of your selected merchandise.

It is strongly recommended that the credit card used to confirm your pre-order reservation uses an expiration date that is later than the published street date for the item.  We will update any changes to street dates on the product pages within 24 hours of any announced changes, and your preorder reservations will continue to be valid subject to terms outlined above. 

Can I cancel my preorder?

You can cancel preorders 14 days before the release date.

Go to your "Order History" in your profile and find the preorder you would like to cancel. Select the "Cancel Preorder" button to cancel the preorder. Preorders cannot be cancelled within 14 days of the release date noted on the product page. If you cannot cancel your preorder and your items have shipped, please request a refund.

What payment methods do you accept?

We offer a variety of payment methods such as Visa, Mastercard and Discover. American Express is available for customers in the United States. Additional payment methods may be available in the future.

What is a pre-order?

A pre-order is an order you place to reserve a product prior to its advertised release or “street date”. Placing a pre-order reservation follows the same checkout process as a regular purchase, however, please note that the Bandai Namco Store requires a saved credit card to confirm your pre-order reservation. Your account will not be charged until merchandise is available in our warehouse.

To ensure timely delivery, please separate the orders between Preorder item and Add To Cart item.

The product I wish to buy is out of stock, can I still place an order?

Unfortunately, that means the product is currently not available.

What is a waitlist?

The waitlist option is offered when an item is out of stock. It will allow you to sign up to be notified via email if that item is restocked. Waitlisted items are not guaranteed to become available again, however, in the case that it does, it will guarantee that you are notified first.

If a pre-order item is restocked, please note that you will have to go through the regular pre-order steps at the time of restock. See "what is a pre-order" for details.

How does the waitlist work?

Waitlisted customers will be notified first and prioritized if the item becomes available again. This means that if you are on a waitlist, you will be notified at least 24 hours via email before the general public. Please note that all of our items are on a first come first serve basis, so even if you are on a waitlist, it does not guarantee that the product will not sell out.

If the item is available to purchase in the future, we will notify you via email. You can add noreply@storebandainamcoent.com to your list of contacts to avoid emails going to your spam folder.

How do I know if I have successfully placed my order?

If your order has been successfully placed, you will receive a confirmation via email from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment. Please be sure to check your email folders including the spam folder. You can add noreply@storebandainamcoent.com to your list of contacts to avoid emails going to your spam folder. You can also check your Order History and status in your Account Settings on our Store to see the latest updates.

Will my order incur sales tax?

The BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Store is required by law in most areas to collect sales tax on orders. The rate applied to your order may vary depending on the product in the shopping cart. Sales tax rates are determined by your state and country and may vary from city to city. The tax rate will be calculated during checkout automatically while entering your information. If you were charged sales tax but believe that you should not have been, please contact our Customer Experience Team to file a claim. Please mark your enquiry as “SALES TAX CLAIM” and include your order number from your email confirmation.

Why is there a quantity limit for the item I want to purchase?

In some cases, we have very limited quantities of Special Editions, Collectors Editions, or merchandise available. To ensure that our fans have an equal chance to purchase these products, we may put a limit on the quantity that you can purchase on a single order.

Do the games I purchase from the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Store work outside of the US and Canada?

Our Products and Services are only available to end users in the United States and Canada.
Please see Terms of Service for details.
