Not even sure what the point of advertising the special edition is since it's been sold out since November, gamestop has been cancelling preorders since Nintendo doesn't have enough in stock, and scalpers are trying to sell it for 3x the retail price.

And still no mention from Nintendo as to the allegation that the mini game has been removed or not. Nintendo PR is truly awful.

I thought that was due to a clerical error on Gamestop's end.

Yeah gamestop had to cancel some in store pre orders due to a computer error. Many places aren't advertising the SE even the official website doesn't list it. Nintendo made quite a mess with limited stock and lack of communication.

Has it? I know I received an email from customer service at Nintendo, but is there something more official?

The comment section is disabled on all their Fire Emblem videos and not for any of their other videos. I think that says a lot and we can safely assume it is indeed cut.
