NIS America has announced that Penny-Punching Princess will no longer receive a physical release in the United Kingdom.
That has been blamed on “unforeseen circumstances” that have resulted in the company being unable to fulfil any orders to meet the game’s release date, which is tomorrow.
However, it will still be made available on the Nintendo eShop, and this will not affect mainland Europe or Australia.
“We at NIS America Inc. would like to thank all of you for your continued enthusiasm and consideration for this title. We sincerely appreciate the support that you have shown Penny-Punching Princess as well as the anticipation that you have demonstrated for the title,” a statement from the company began.
“While we are excitedly counting down the hours until we can share this amazing title with the United Kingdom digitally, we have a solemn update to present regarding the physical release on Nintendo Switch.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Standard Edition physical release of Penny-Punching Princess will not be available in the UK region.
“It was brought to our attention that the orders for this title would not be able to be fulfilled by their proper release date. In response to this issue, we worked tirelessly to correct this matter. With all options considered, the only viable option left was to cancel the United Kingdom physical release of the Standard Edition of Penny-Punching Princess.
“Once again, we would like to extend our personal thanks for your support of this title and our company, and hope that you continue to look forward to its Nintendo Switch and PS Vita digital releases on Friday.
“Please note that this occurrence was isolated to the United Kingdom, and will not impact the availability in Europe and Australia. The title will still be available digitally for the United Kingdom.”
Penny-Punching Princess will release for Nintendo Switch in Europe on March 30th, and across North America on April 3rd.
