We apologise for the inconvenience that Nintendo fans are experiencing compared with people outside of their region.

Localisation and PAL conversion processes often make these delays unavoidable. Although in some instances PAL versions have made it to the markets faster than the versions of other regions – for example Mario Strikers Charged Football and Battalion Wars. We are currently making efforts to minimise the time needed for localisations, as we understand that the difference in worldwide release dates is frustrating to fans. – Nintendo Australia public relations coordinator Heather Murphy
