    •    International Orders: International shipping times can vary depending on location, but generally take 1-4 weeks after dispatch.
    •    Pre-Orders: Pre-orders typically ship close to the official release date, but this can vary (sometimes drastically) due to conditions beyond our control. We'll send you a notification when your pre-order is on its way!
