It’s the number 1 best selling game on Amazon France, Germany and Spain!  Which really goes to show that a  good game that people actually want will do well, even in regions in which Nintendo has no real market or support. As well as that even the extremely negative and cynical journalists writing for the gaming press can’t bring down a good game by attacking it for not being appealing to their own narrow tastes.

No really.  Despite this being the age of worldwide release dates, Nintendo not delaying most of their games for months on end and digital distribution, only Europe is affected by Mario Party Island Tour’s delay until 2014.   In the US it’s coming on November 22nd, Japan sometime during the holiday season and other countries will get it on similar dates.

Here’s the box art for the European versions of Pokemon X and Y, namely the German versions.  As you can tell, they look much like the US ones: Still, I guess the USK rating logo could be just a tad smaller, right?  I mean, it’s kind of intrusive at the moment, especially compared to the relatively small ESRB one. But those are the European box art designs for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.

Seems like it’s going to be released at much the same time as the US version if Nintendo of Europe’s official site is correct.  Here’s what they say about the game’s release date: Flipnote Studio 3D is a free application, scheduled for release on August 1st 2013 And so there you have it.  FlipNote Studio 3D is heading for Europe on August 1st, and is probably well worth the download for anyone who liked the DSi version.
