Splatoon continues to exceed expectations. Nintendo of Japan has issued an apology for the scarceness of Splatoon copies in stores across Japan. It appears that the Big N has seriously underestimated the demand for the title and has promised that a new shipment will arrive next week.
Moreover, the Splatoon Amiibo are unsurprisingly in short supply and will likely be sold out in a matter of moments. As a short remedy to the problem, Nintendo has encouraged that Wii U owners desperate to play Splatoon to purchase the title on Nintendo eShop.
Nintendo apologize is as follows, which I have kindly summarized in english above:
Splatoon is a third person online multiplayer shooter for the Nintendo Wii U. It will shortly be released in all major markets in a matter of hours.
For all the latest news on Splatoon stay updated at NNF.
