“Due to unforeseen circumstances,” Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure will not make it to Australian shores before the new year. Nintendo made it official that the game, now joining a list including Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Battalion Wars 2, Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, and Endless Ocean, will not be shipped to retailers in 2007. In addition, there are several rumors going around that Zack & Wiki will not be making it to Europe this year either, suggesting that the problem may stem from PAL-conversion issues.
My review for the game is still on its way, but I’m leaning towards saying it’s not that big of a loss for this year. You’ll live, especially with Galaxy less than a month away in Australia.
