GAMINGtruth takes points out the multiple release dates by big name retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon and Toys'R'Us for Fire Emblem: Awakening.
"It can be a bummer when you find out that a game you have been waiting for all year, or many years, has been delayed -- that's just how the industry works. If the game is not up to par, needs polishing touches or has caught some snag in the lovely ecosystem of the law, you can expect a wait. While these may impede a game from hitting its original release date, you at least know what that date is. Often a highly anticipated game has been slathered over every imaginable media interface. While this occurs for many big name titles, smaller ones might feel the pinch. Enter: Fire Emblem: Awakening."
