Earlier this week we told you about the delay to the European release of Scribblenauts Unlimited on Wii U and 3DS, due to "changes" that needed to be made — no real details were given. It appears as if someone forgot to tell the team that manages content on the Wii U eShop, as it made a brief appearance on the platform; not only that, at least one UK gamer has successfully downloaded it and is enjoying the game right now.
That lucky gamer is Joe Merrick (@joemerrick), as he confirms in the following Twitter exchange.
@NintenDaan Got it downloaded. It's awesome— Joe Merrick (@JoeMerrick) February 8, 2013
The Wii U eShop entry has now apparently been removed, though the image below does show that it was an available product. We may not know the specific reasons for the delay in Europe, but for the odd lucky eShop customer it's not an issue.
Thanks to Nintendaan for the tip.
