GAME Group's woes continue as it seems that two major releases, Street Fighter X Tekken and Asura's Wrath, will not be available at the retail stores GAME or GameStation. Both games are published by Capcom, and will be released on the 9th March.
The games join other high profile titles that are not being stocked at the major videogame retailer, including Mass Effect 3, Mario Party 9, The Last Story and FIFA Street, due to the company losing credit insurance with suppliers over the holidays.
Even though the struggling retailer received financial assistance from banks, it has not yet been able to secure better credit terms with Nintendo, Electronic Arts or Capcom.
According to a representative from Capcom, "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. 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."
"For those consumers who have already placed a deposit for a pre-order for any of these titles then a full refund will be available – please contact your local GAME or Gamestation shop or visit the online stores," the rep advised gamers.
