SSBB won't be out in Europe till after June 2008

Hotly anticipated Wii title Super Smash Bros. Brawl won't be coming out in Europe until after June 2008, Nintendo has confirmed to

They thought something was up when they noticed the game was absent from Nintendo's updated schedule, distributed to media this morning. This seemed odd considering Mario Kart Wii, another high-profile first-party Wii game, was listed as coming out in Q2.

When contacted by a Nintendo spokesperson revealed that SSBB won't be out until after Q2 in Europe. SSBB is set for release in the US on February 10, 2008 and January 24, 2008 in Japan.

I live in NA but this pisses me off. What is the rhyme and reason for this? Is it really gonna take that long to localize the game for EU? I just feel like such a highly-anticipated game w/ very competitive online play such as SSBB should really have a simultaneous global release. I'd even go as far as to say to delay it for JP and NA a bit in order to focus on EU localization rather than manufacturing retail copies for the JP and NA markets.

It's just not fair that JP and NA get an early Q1 release while EU gets a post-Q2 release. What could possibly take an additional 6 months of development on a finished product to make it EU-ready?
