We all knew that the game was something special, but this?
VJ-Day was June 26 in Japan, and as the week went on, copies of the game were dwindling quickly. Retailers were getting in small replenishment shipments, but those were getting sucked up too. It appears then, that most of the country is out of Viewtiful Joe, and today Capcom has posted a notice of this on its website.
They're apolgizing for the shortage, and asking everyone who is waiting for it to have some patience while Capcom ramps up production of the game. It hopes to get out more copies before the middle of the month.
It's not out of the question to say that importers might have helped cause this. That being said, those of you thinking of importing the game had better look forward to Videogame Depot's next shipment; the game is currently back on pre-order only.
