Bad news for UK fans of Nippon Ichi Software this morning in the UK.
We received an word this morning from NISA (Nippon Ichi Software America) that they have had to cancel the physical version of Penny Punching Princess in the UK.
They have said this was due to “Unforeseen circumstances”.
Info below: –
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. 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 is still due out physically and digitally for Switch , and digitally for PS Vita, on April 3 in North America and Europe and March 30 in Europe (now excluding the UK).
