The Starship Damrey's EU Release is Forgotten Until 16th May

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

[Insert sad face here]

Yesterday, as normal on a Monday, we provided the full details of this week's European Nintendo Download update, which features quite a few 3DS eShop titles to enjoy. While Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is probably the biggest profile game coming on 9th May, we were also intrigued and pleased to see that The Starship Damrey is coming this week. Except, it isn't.

We've been notified by Nintendo that "THE STARSHIP DAMREY from LEVEL-5 has now been moved to 16th May"; that's that, then. From a Sales & Marketing 101 perspective this is arguably a smart move, as Nintendo won't want a great many purchases focusing on Mario's latest shenanigans when there's a Guild02 offering arriving at the same time; rather like with the Level-5 predecessors from Guild01, we'd expect these releases to be given prime billing on the 3DS eShop. For those of us intrigued by The Starship Damrey's concept of a sci-fi setting, a protagonist with a loss of memory and a hands-off approach that leaves the player to figure everything out for themselves, we'll just need to wait one week longer.

Never mind, Europe, we can console ourselves with the Japanese trailer in the meantime, via NintenDaan.

Oh, that's a shame. Although if this game winds up being as creepy as I hope it will, I might just need a MvDK game to play afterwards so the tension gets diffused

That's a shame but as noted by Thomas it is probably a smart move. It's better to spread them outthan concentrate them and get some of them lost in the shuffle.

Ugh, why am I not surprised by this? It's all they do these days - delay, delay, delay. I'll just be over here playing Soul Sacrifice.

Why, Level-5, why you leave me more time to realize that money is best spent in feeding my familiy and not in buying games?



Windy said:

Oh wow I really wanted to play this thursday. Back too Soul Hackers! LOL

Oh Boo hoo you have to wait a week, hear in NA it was always coming out on the 16th at least Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move comes out in both NA and EU this week and it (Mario and Donkey Kong) looks like it will be a fun game.

Oh come on! I was so hyped to play it this weekend >.<

Oh well... at least it's just a week of delay, not like there aren't games out there to play in the meanwhile XP

That's ok. Payday is next week for me so this works out quite well^^
Also gives me time to make a bit of space for the Damrey
