Best Buy said it didn’t expect the game till February 6, while GameStop put the likely date as February 8. Amazon hasn’t supplied a new date but expects delays.

The retailers blamed shipping issues for the setback.

    Why can’t they do blanket releases with eshop stuff?

    Especially with Euro and US?

    Surely it’s possible, the translation work is already done?!

    Same with Mother / Earthbound games.

    Also, where’s Scribblenauts Wii U for us UK gamers? :(
