[News] Fire Emblem: Awakening Delayed Several Days, Millions Weep

In news that has severely dampened my Monday, Game Informer reports that Fire Emblem: Awakening, the nigh-upon-us latest installment in Nintendo and Intelligent Systems’ SRPG franchise, while still launching in digital form tomorrow, will not be reaching the physical shelves of some retailers until as late as Friday the 8th. Chalked up to a “shipping error,” the title seems to have been delayed from its February 4th release date until the 6th for Best Buy, and the 8th for most GameStops, with the latter corroborated by this thread on GameFaqs. However, it does appear that this delay may be on a case-by-case basis, with some GameStop locations still expecting their shipments by the 5th. All in all, it seems that it would be best to contact your local stores to determine how greatly you will be affected by the troubles.
