Nintendo: Inazuma Eleven Not Officially Launched in the UK

Stock released "in error"

Our British copy of Inazuma Eleven arrived recently, flying in the face of general wisdom that the game isn't yet available in the UK. Since then we've been in contact with Nintendo UK, who have been able to clarify the situation.

Robert Saunders, Nintendo's head of communications, confirmed that the game has not officially launched in the UK, but that a small number of copies were sent out from the company's warehouse "in error".

Nintendo stills plans to release the game later on this year alongside the TV cartoon series. We'll have more news when it arrives.
