For those Fire Emblem fans among you, this may be disturbing news. It seems that a “small delay” is plaguing shipments of Fire Emblem: Awakening.
Despite the fact that the strategy role-playing game is supposed to have a Feb. 4 release date here in the states, a number of Best Buy locations told Kyle Hilliard of Game Informer that the game wouldn’t be available till Feb. 6. Some Gamestop locations have also said it won’t hit their shelves until Feb. 8 due to “shipping errors.”
Even Amazon warns “delivery of Fire Emblem: Awakening pre-orders may be affected by manufacturer shipping delays.”
There has been no official statement from Nintendo in regard to the perceived delays. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date when word gets out.
