Oops. That's a bit embarrassing. To be fair though, it's not like it's the first time a game has been released unfinished, and at least this time it was by accident and quickly corrected.

Yeah well I received my copy from Amazon today anyway! Obviously a bit wary of playing it, though surely there is nothing majorly wrong with it...
As soon as there is a new Boy and His Blob game, for Wii U, 3DS or future Nintendo platform; I can delete this account and make a new one with a better name.

Make it happen Nintendo.

My question is, what happened to the people who managed to start downloading it? Did anyone actually end up with it..?

Yes some people did get it and it's working fine for them. They have no idea why it is delayed as it works.

They probably decided to do a Ubisoft and release it on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Since ShopTo didn't send mine, I took a chance when I was notified of this, downloaded it and have been playing most of the afternoon.

It's awesome :D

Plus I get like £5 back thanks to the Nintendo Network stuff :D

A few friends of mine managed to as well.

It was up for around 12 hours from midnight until just before midday so plenty of time

Whats with all the mistakes and delays all of a sudden? I don't want the game, but why is it even delayed? Surely if it was glitchy, they could have just patched it :/

If it was a "minor" delay, that means it's out this week, right?

Right?
