Xenoblade Chronicles Stock Shortage
It has been announced that Xenoblade Chronicles, due to release tomorrow across Europe, is facing serious stock shortages. Nintendo of Europe seems to have not expected the great demand for their latest JRPG and so are dealing with both high-street and online retailer shortages.
The online retailer ShopTo.net tweeted earlier; “Due to the unexpected late demand for Xenoblade Chronicles the publisher has experienced great stock shortages of this title.”
Although we do not know how this will affect sales over the weekend, we can expect that Nintendo will deal first with all pre-orders of the game and then place larger orders to fill shelves.
It is unusual that a Wii exclusive JRPG would attract this much attention prior to release. However, it looks as though Xenoblade deserves the attention as it has received glowing reviews across the board, with a current Metacritic score of 92 out of 100. Hopefully it will knock Zumba Fitness off of the top spot the UK Charts once released.
