Released in North America this past Sunday, Kirby’s Epic Yarn will not be warming hearts elsewhere this year.
Nintendo’s announced a delay for the warm and fuzzy side-scroller; it is now a 2011 title in both Europe and Australia.
“Australia generally follows the European release schedule, as both Europe and Australia use the PAL system. As Kirby’s Epic Yarn is launching in Europe in 2011, it will also launch in Australia in 2011,” Nintendo Australia has explained to IGN.
The game’s been receiving rave reviews from all over, making the slip all the less pleasant.
