Why is it that us en Europe have to wait till  June 11 to get the game while american get it May 23.  
 
Anyone know why? i know we usaly get them a few days later like american have them Thursday while Europe have them Friday; but two weeks, come on the game is done just get it out over here

because nintendo games, unlike ps3 and 360 in most cases, come out weeks, not days later. Always been that way, and yes, it sucks

Nintendo of Europe is weird like that. Heck, Nintendo of America is like that too. Even tough a game is finished, they might not release it until the following year, like Brawl or Sin and Punishment 2.

i assume that because europe has many countries that publishers have to deal with many more legalities - clear everything with their ratings boards and so on.  thats my guess
