Mario Party 8 Recalled

Posted by Sammy Barker

It was a Friday 13th to remember yesterday as Nintendo's latest Wii game, Mario Party 8, was recalled from the shelves.

Apparently a "wrong" version of the software was ditributed around the country containing a politically incorrect term ("spastic").

The new release date of the game has not yet been announced but we will keep you updated on developments.

This is the official word from Nintendo:

The above game was launched in the UK today. Unfortunately we have discovered that a small number of games contain the wrong version of the disk due to an assembly error. We have therefore decided to recall all copies of the game from UK retailers so that this mistake can be corrected.

We will re-launch Mario Party 8 in the UK as soon as possible and will announce a new launch date shortly. We very much regret any inconvenience caused.

Political correctness FTL.

Although I'm hearing this game is very poor so no big loss really, eh?

nope it's not poor at all... am lucky enough to still have a copy (the right version) and the kids and ourselves love it... my only gripe are the borders at the side of the screen which can be rectified so i've been told by adjusting your TV's aspect ratio... top stuff imo
