Has Nintendo gone back to hating the UK again?

After getting a handful of titles early like Xenoblade and Last Story it seems like Nintendo have randomly went from getting releases out within a week to months. Scribblenauts and Ninja Gaiden randomly went from being launch titles to being released 2-3 months later. A lot of other titles have done the same. Fire Emblem is a main one I'm noticing. Demo is up and the game is out next month. UK has no demo up and the game isn't even out until May.

I wouldn't even mind if they were translating it correctly but Ninja Gaiden seems unchanged (if anything it's got less content since Miiverse is restricted.)

So is there any reason why english games are once again taking a few extra months to go from America to UK? Or is it simply my imagination?

Firstly, FE comes out in April, not May last I checked.

Secondly, why give us a demo now for a game not due to release for 4 months? Release it closer to the release date and it stirs interest, keeps it in the gaming eye there and then and drives sales. To do it too early would cause people to lose interest before the actual game came out.

Yet why are we getting the game in April when America gets it in Feb? That is what I don't understand.

And I'm only going off what the shops are doing. Shopto has it for end of May. Amazon doesn't even have up for pre-order.

Perhaps if more of you buy their new console, they will be nicer to you...

There's a lot more languages to translate to.

Perhaps if they released a steady flow of games, people would buy the console.
