This game seems to be getting a whole lot of attention right now, but still no release date for Europe...

At least you guys actually live in the same country these events are ever held in!

Well.. some of you.



LztheQuack said:

@10: Yup, because all of us are able to travel thousands of miles to attend these events

Keep in mind the US is much larger than any European country

@Lordlz We could but tickets to LA cost money. I'm sure we all want to go to one of those Nintendo Time Square events. However it costs a good amount of money for a trip to New York, especially the sooner the flight is.
And at @Radixxs No you don't

when nintendo of america, europe and australia consider holding launch events such as this one, perhaps they need to make it nationwide by having each event held in different parts of the country.

seeing as not everyone lives in the main cities. just something they need to consider.

this rhythm heaven launch event sounds like fun though.
