Ni No Kuni delayed to February 1 due to logistical issue

Tuesday, 8th January 2013 15:58 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Ni No Kuni has been delayed by a week, meaning it will now release on February 1 in Europe instead of January 25. Namco Bandai said the delay was due to a logistical issue and as a way of apology, is offering a downloadable Draggle familiar for the trouble. It will be available at launch. The game is still slated for January 22 on PS3 in North America. Watch a new behind-the-scenes video below, which will either tide you over or make you want it more. Thanks, Eurogamer.

    what does logistical mean?

    “logistic: of or relating to logistics; “logistic requirements”"

    “Of or relating to logistics?”

    “The detailed coordination of a complex operation involving many people, facilities, or supplies”

    @1 Logistical, as in there’s a problem with getting code out, or the disc pressing won’t be done in time, the marketing material isn’t finished, there’s an error on the front or back cover. That sort of thing.

    Are you asking the definition of the term or what Namco means by it?

    EDIT: @1

    Typo on the box spine. It currently says Ni No Kony.

    @1 It’s complicated. Logistics has to do with shipping and transport, getting things where they need to go, but it could also mean, as Dave suggested, moving code or a number of other things.

    I guess you could call logistics the science of A to B.
