A whole bunch of people who pre-ordered Ni no Kuni are having all sorts of issues getting their copies of the PS3 role-playing game, which came out Tuesday.
We've been getting lots of tips about the US pre-order issues for the past two days, and people have taken to publisher Namco Bandai's forums to complain. People who pre-ordered the special Wizard's Edition of the game from Namco's store tell us their orders remain unshipped, and in some cases, cancelled entirely.
There's even a big thread on the Namco forums titled "The (un)official 'What's going on with my order' thread." Check it out to see a big FAQ created by one of the Namco forum members, and plenty of angry complaints from people who have yet to receive the games they put down money for — or whose orders were cancelled with no explanation.
I reached out to Namco Bandai this morning to ask about these pre-order woes, but I have yet to hear back. I'll keep you updated as I hear more.
UPDATE: The local stock of Ni No Kuni has been shipped to retailers on time, and should go on sale next Thursday, the 31st, without issues.
