Square Enix underestimated The World Ends With You

Gamers have been having a hard time getting their hands on Square Enix’s DS game The World Ends With Youthis one hits close to home because it took me 3 weeks to track down a copy of the game with GameStop, Ebgames, telling me they sell out of the game as soon as it hits shelves. My attempts at purchasing the game at three different Best Buy’s were met with looks of “what the hell are you talking about?”

Joystiq managed to talk to Square Enix and recieved a statement from the company saying: “The first shipment did sell more quickly than expected.” The company followed up by saying that there would be more copied of the game shipping in mid-June, so if you’re looking to get your hands on a copy and haven’t managed to find the game, there should be some at your local game retailer shortly.
