GAME will not stock Tecmo Koei titles Ninja Gaiden 3 and Warriors Orochi 3, the publisher’s confirmed this morning, while Capcom has announced Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will also not be in the shop next week.

“Tecmo Koei Europe regrets to announce that upcoming releases Ninja Gaiden 3 and Warriors Orochi 3 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system will not be available through GAME and Gamestation retail outlets or online in the UK and Ireland,” Tecmo said in a statement.

“Customers who have already pre-ordered Ninja Gaiden 3 and Warriors Orochi 3 are kindly asked to re-order their copies from another retailer.”

The publisher’s advised to pick up the games at another retailer and get refunds from GAME.

Capcom’s confirmed this morning it wasn’t to stock Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City in GAME. It announced the possibility last week alongside confirmation of a non-stocking of Asura’s Wrath and Street Fighter x Tekken.

“Further to the recent announcement concerning Street Fighter x Tekken and Asura’s Wrath, Capcom must confirm that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, scheduled for release on Friday, 23rd March, will not be stocked by GAME or Gamestation – either in their retail outlets or on their online stores operating in the UK and Ireland,” reads a Capcom statement.

“Capcom wants to reassure its consumers that this title will be available at a wide variety of retailers across the UK and Ireland. For those consumers who have already placed a deposit to pre-order of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, then a full refund will be available – please contact your local GAME or Gamestation shop or visit the online stores.

“Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is available for pre-order or to purchase on day of release from the following outlets: Blockbusters, HMV,,,, The Hut and leading independent stockists as well as supermarket chains.”

Ninja Gaiden 3 and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City launch next week, while Warriors Orochi 3 releases in Europe at the end of the month.

    Just to be be completely and irresponsibly selfish, this is really messing with my “avoid Australian retail prices” plans. Fingers crossed for all those with jobs on the line. Redundancy’s not a lot of fun these days.

    Brenna, how DO you avoid Australian prices? Is importing really cheaper than local retail or digital?

    They really need to sort this mess out quickly – i.e. if they’re going to sell to someone, do it soon – before Game’s reputation is (completely) destroyed.
