Game Delays Continue In Japan

On Monday, a handful of games were delayed in Japan. One title, Disaster Report 4, was shelved altogether for obvious reasons. But the game delays aren’t over.

Besides zombie title Yakuza: Of The End and apocalyptic racing game Motorstorm 3, other games that are being delayed in Japan are Xbox 360 title Dragon Age: Origins, Nintendo’s Steel Diver for the 3DS and PSP game Haruhi Suzumiya’s Majhong, as well as Toaru Kagaku no Railgun for the PSP.

However, there are reports online that Toaru Kagaku no Railgun was delayed in advance of last Friday’s earthquake. Moreover, retailers are reporting that Dragon Age: Origins is being postponed for Japan. Official word doesn’t seem to be public yet, however.

In the press release for Steel Driver’s delay, Nintendo did not explicitly mention the earthquake as the reason why the game will miss its intended March 17 release; however, Nintendo said the game was being held for “various reasons”.

Steel Driver is an side-scrolling, underwater action game. No word whether Nintendo is holding up the Western release of Steel Driver, which is pegged for March 27.
