Japanese text probably not included

We just got word from Nintendo of Australia that gamers in the land down under will have to wait a little bit longer for their dose of Super Mario Galaxy 2 goodness. Instead of hitting store shelves on June 10th, the game will now make its Australian debut on July 1st. The good news is that the helpful DVD that Europe and Japan are getting is coming along for the ride as well.

Where does this leave North America, seemingly the only continent so far to not get the DVD? The only reasonable explanation to us is that the old people there are just such hardcore Mario players that they don't need it.

So rejoice Australians! While you still can! You know Nintendo loves you, somewhat, even if other game companies sometimes don't.
