Here we go again!
What next? Monster hunter? Rayman?
So I do literally have to wait until march to get any other decent games now! Unless they all get delayed.

Well there goes any likelihood of me getting this. I'll just wait for Monster Hunter Tri U.

What could possibly cause them to delay it just 3 days before the scheduled release.

Either that or they've found some huge glitch.

Unlikely - something like that would almost certainly be in other versions, and could be fixed with a patch.

Is this what we can look forward to for the future of the Wii U delay after delay?

Here's another idea. What if they've realised they've got American spellings of words, so English spelling won't work properly? Maybe.

I probably won't bother with this game now. After so many more important releases in March, my wallet will be tapped out. Shame.

Maybe. The older games let you use both spellings in both the UK and US versions though.

Delay after delay,if this turns out to be released in March,I won't bother because there's quite a few more games I want more.

I was really looking forward to this.

Nintendo of Europe being Nintendo of Europe, any news about WarioWare Twisted?
Considering that Scribblenauts was a Wii U launch game in the US, it's kinda annoying we have to wait a few months longer, but i'll wait, since Scribblenauts is awesome.
Hope this won''t turn into New Leaf levels of delays, seriously, New Leaf is becoming Duke Nukem Forever 2...

I will not be buying this now, what a shambles!!! It's not like they couldn't do a day one patch as its likely that is just a localization problem. Fail!!!

Oh well, I'll just have to hope I like the Crimson Shroud demo this week and play the full game in the mean time.

This is actually outrageous. It's already 4 months since the American release and I've been hyping like mad all week.
I am just really, REALLY annoyed.

I don't understand why everyone goes insane when a game gets delayed. It might be annoying, yes, but not enough to rage about! Everyone goes all negative and angry when something like this happens, and act like it's been cancelled or something.

Edit: Ok, nevermind. This is getting ridiculous with just about every developer.

I wish Nintendo would give a reason and be done with ridiculous secrecy. I bet that there is one thing mildly offensive to one European country -probably Germany- that isn't offensive in America. It probably means that the PEGI age rating is higher than Nintendo wants and now has to remove something small and get a re-rating. It'll be something stupid like that.

When the game is finally out, it would be nice if ONM did a comparison between the two versions so we can see what these "changes that need to be implemented" are.
