The retailer’s site only has a “coming soon” page live and a list of games or accessories to buy, and after calling a few locations I was told that there was no online pre-order, meaning every single one of the systems that Toys R Us is receiving will be going to a walk-in.

A stylish mansion-based murder mystery in which you turn back the clock to save masked attendees of a flamboyant party from grisly deaths.
