Kirby lashes out

Kirby's Epic Yarn finally made its way to Europe last week, having been available in North America since the end of October, but its first weekend of sales in the UK don't make a strong case for the delay helping sales.

The game completely failed to dent the all-formats top 40, landing in the Wii-specific charts at number 9, behind Donkey Kong Country Returns and one place above Disney Epic Mickey.

Sadly the game's UK launch event didn't help the game's fortunes out, but is the real reason behind its underwhelming performance more to do with the long in bringing the game across to Europe? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
