Well. Thank you for raining on our parade.


No worries. But I'm sure this is just a delay. The game is on Nintendo's website and has been rated by Pegi.

And its on the official website with box art

So if this was cancelled it would have to have been just as they were polishing it. The delay is peculiar I admit but its probably because the developer needs a bit more time and a release date is being decided.

It would have made more sense for Capcom to cancel SF X T on Vita then cancelling Aliens at this point.

I used to think this too. But now I'm not so sure. I agree the game is NOT cancelled. But the release is peculiar.

Go look for it on Amazon. All you get is page for the PC/PS3/360. Wii U is absent....

I think there is some conspiracy going on. N is getting some sort of resistance from retailers. Retailers are the ones who control the release dates, right?

Actually I'm pretty sure it's common for devs to tell retailers they can't start selling/shipping copies before their official launch date.

that's what you'd think. but retailers have to plan release dates so they don't conflict and so they must have input with devs about the issue... and both amazon and gamestop swing a lot of weight with devs...

nintendo has a running beef with amazon right now, and gamestop is insulted by Nintendo's eshop model... just a hypothesis

This just in, Rainswept is a giant troll looking for billy goats to eat. Pretends to hate Nintendo but visits the board regularly because he really wants a Wii U but has no money for one.

Some of you are trolled so easily. /picardpalm

You have NO f***ing idea, lol... it's harder to get a man dying of thirst to drink water than it is to get some of these kids to bite.

And I say "kid" in a mental capacity - no offense to the "slower" adults in our midst. ;)

I'm pretty sure they announced it was delayed liked 3 weeks ago... never saw anything about cancelled and I sincerely doubt it's cancelled.
