Destructoid recently told you about potential Super Smash Bros. Brawl shortages for the game's Japanese launch, but now an update from importer National Console Support makes the situation look more like a short delay.
They are to receive the initial shipments of SSBB this Thursday, and while they were able to obtain more copies than they originally expected, it looks like some preorder customers will have to wait another week. The importer's update from yesterday said that "Nintendo will only ship 25% of the game this week due to a production shortage," though more will be available next week. Phew!
The remainder of our Smash Bros X shipments are scheduled to arrive no later than Wednesday or Thursday of next week and we'll be able to fill all remaining preorders and any new orders at that time.
