Will this ever come to the UK?

#1 Posted by Clairabel (178 posts) -

I've checked all major retailers here in the UK, and nowhere seems to be stocking it. I even went into GAME to see if they had a release date for it and they didn't have a clue.

Any ideas?

As far as I've seen, it's only confirmed for North America and Australia with no mention of the UK anywhere. If you're feeling impatient, I'd look into importing.

I knew it was coming to Australia, so I assumed it would go to the UK. That is quite unusual. I suppose we only need a single language down here, so all those European languages could slow it up. I would be certain that it would get a European release at some time, it is Pokemon after all. But still, an import from Australia wouldn't be that hard I imagine.

Not even a whisper about an EU release. And I've looked into importing from australia but can't find anywhere to do so. Sucks.

If it comes here then I want it!

Why would they release it in Australia but not Europe even though they are both PAL. Weird.

It'll probably come to EU eventually, people are forgetting about the multiple languages.

Is the 3DS region free, you could probably import it.

3DS games are region locked, but DS games are not. I'm not sure what would happen if a DS game from one region were played in the 3DS of another.

That's basically what I thought.

Here. (Canadian version)

@WinterSnowblind: That's where I usually import from, but because the game's DSi enchanced, it will only play on a 3DS of the same region. It would play on my old DS, but that's falling apart and is totally not fun to play on.
