Street Fighter x Tekken and Asura’s Wrath will not be stocked at GAME ahead of both games releases this week, publisher Capcom has told MCV, but the chain has told VG247 the setback is merely “temporary”.
Capcom said the special edition of SFxT will be made available from a “wide variety” of retailers throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.
The launch of Street Fighter x Tekken and Asura’s Wrath are some of the week’s biggest launches alongside Mass Effect 3, now all three of which won’t be stocked by GAME.
It’s unknown if the company has made a decision on if the retailer should stock Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City before its March 26 release.
“Unfortunately Capcom must confirm that Street Fighter x Tekken for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Asura’s Wrath, both scheduled for release on Friday March 9, will not be stocked by GAME or gamestation either in their retail outlets or on their online stores operating in the UK and Ireland,” said a Capcom statement.
“Capcom wants to reassure its consumers that both these titles, including the Special Edition of Street Fighter X Tekken, will be available at a wide variety of retailers across the UK and Ireland.
