Are you one of the eager RPG beavers awaiting your copy of The Last Story, or thinking of getting yours in GAME. Think again.
The future is looking a little bleak for the UK video game retailer with stock and credit issues causing disruption in the newest releases - even some of the more popular titles unable to grace store shelves.
One of these victims is now the Wii-exclusive The Last Story - the retailer has cancelled all pre-orders of both the limited and standard editions, and will be refunding all £5 deposits.
Earlier this week the Special Edition copies were downgraded to "normal" status, but since then all editions have been cancelled.
The situation may change, according to GAME Group Marketing Director Anna-Marie Mason mentioned in an interview earlier this week, but for now the Mistwalker-developed Wii exclusive you will have to grab elsewhere.
Following on from reports of GAME UK having trouble stocking Nintendo 3DS title Tekken 3D Prime Edition and dropping Ubisoft's PlayStation Vita launch games, news has now emerged that the limited edition version of Nintendo and Mistwalker's Wii RPG, The Last Story, will also not be available at the UK largest retailer. Any pre-orders that customers have made have now been cancelled, with a recommendation that the standard version is bought instead (something the store is stocking).
Both SKUs will be arriving in Europe this coming Friday, 24th February, 2012, with the superior copy coming in a Steelbook case, featuring the game, the sublime soundtrack from Nobuo Uematsu, and an art book.
