I ask because it still seems like none of the electronics and games retailers near me (near Toronto, Ontario) seem to have any copies unless you're at the store within a few hours of when they get their like weekly shipment.
While I expect this of Atlus or XSEED games, or cult-favourites-that-still-have-overall-low-sales-numbers like Ace Attorney games or Ghost Trick, the Fire Emblem series has been steadily growing since it came to the West, and I swear I saw copies of Shadow Dragon EVERYWHERE for months and months after it launched. I don't think that game reviewed particularly badly, nor did this one, so I can't imagine they intended to ship dramatically less copies of Awakening.
It really seems like there must still be massive shipping delay/production problems or something. Is there a recent statement from Nintendo on the matter?
