Nintendo AU is [expletive deleted]!!! I've had Dementium: The Ward since Fall 2007 here in the States!!! Unbelievable...
Pokemon and Pikmin invade Aussie Nintendo DSs and Wiis.
We're into the third week of May now, and we're finally seeing a broader variety of games coming out down under (but this isnít a great achievement given the slim pickings of previous weeks). Leading the charge of games hitting Aussie shores this week is Pokemon Platinum for the Nintendo DS. Like in the previous games, players can expect to be wandering around towns and forests looking to add more Pokemon to their collection, all the while fending off hostile Pokemon in random turn-based battles that have been a part of the series since the original games. One of the biggest new features to Pokemon Platinum is the new location setting of Distortion World, a land where the laws of time and space no longer apply, which brings in a new element to the fights. Expect to see Pokemon Platinum hit store shelves this Thursday.
Other notable games to come out this week include the reworked version of the GameCube classic Pikmin 2 called New Play Control! Pikmin 2, as well as the edited version of Silent Hill: Homecoming for the Xbox 360. Stay tuned to AU Shippin' Out next week for all the latest Aussie releases, including UFC Undisputed 2009, Bionic Commando, and more!
Oh yes, an edited version of SH: Homecoming. I bet everyone's gonna buy that. I, for one, can't wait to buy this incomplete & tampered-with game. Oh waw, like, thanks a million to the persion who thought that would be a good idea! /sarcasm Up yours censors! :@
i agree with flippin_flames Nintendo Australia promised we would get our games not long after japan.
About time we got Platinum, hopefully Nintendo Australia can succeed in giving us heart gold and soul silver faster than this
