It Isn’t December, But Away: Shuffle Dungeon Is Here

I’ll leave the obligatory release date shuffling joke out, but something went very awry with the North American launch of Away: Shuffle Dungeon. First Majesco says it’s coming out in October, then it gets pushed to December at the last minute, and today Majesco sends a press release that it “shipped” to stores. Meanwhile the official Away: Shuffle Dungeon still says it’s coming in December. This can’t be good for Majesco or Mistwalker who hasn’t had much success selling the game in Japan.


One possible reason why Majesco sporadically bumped the release date back up was pointed out by some of our savvy commenters. Away: Shuffle Dungeon was leaked on the internet. Caught between a rock and a hard place Majesco had to make a decision. Holding the game until December while an illegal copy is readily available would hurt Away: Shuffle Dungeon more than a botched launch. And this is one botched launch.
