We’re only a week away from the launch of Lego City: Undercover, but if you’re planning on picking up a physical copy of the game, you could be waiting a few more days. Both Best Buy and Future Shop have updated their online listings for the game as having a release date of March 20th, two days after the official release date set by Nintendo as March 18th. Amazon still has the correct list date as March 18th, but there’s a note on the listing that says the following:
Potential Shipping Delay
Delivery of Lego City: Undercover pre-orders may be affected by manufacturer shipping delays . Amazon apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
This leads us to believe that Nintendo is having another physical shipping problem similar to what we saw with Fire Emblem: Awakening. This is bad news for people who want to purchase a physical copy as you’ll have to wait a few days, but the midnight release of the game on the Wii U eShop is still scheduled to take place as planned. Will this affect whether you buy digitally or physical copies? Let us know in the comments.
