A shocking announcement, considering that Australia is getting the device in October.
CVG is reporting Nintendo of Europe has confirmed to the British magazine that the e-Reader accessory has been removed from all of NOE's release lists. This is despite the fact that it was confirmed for a Euro release back in May, with a plethora of e-Card games to go with it.
The Nintendo rep who informed CVG about this decision gave no reason for the apparent cancellation of the e-Reader in European territories. Considering that America is getting a new bundle deal, and the oft-ignored Australia is getting the thing, the decision to axe a popular product in the third largest game market in the world is curious.
We'll keep you posted with any further details when them become available.
