Well, this is a little unsettling. I've received a few reports this morning from our Canadian readers regarding Mega Man Dual Pack for the PlayStation Portable. As you no doubt know, Dual Pack was recently released in America a few weeks ago, with a Canadian release penned for October 11th. Now it seems Dual Pack isn't Canada-bound at all.
Those who've pre-ordered the game via GameStop/EB Games are reportedly receiving e-mail notifications saying the "product has been canceled by the publisher." Solidifying these reports, the apparent removal of Dual Pack from GameStop.ca's listing, and confirmation from a Canada-based EB Games employee (source). Uh, yikes.
Unfortunately, specifics were not divulged regarding why it was cancelled, nor is it apparent if the product will be offered again at a later date. I've reached out to a Capcom and GameStop representative for comment, so hopefully we'll have an update on this shortly. In the meantime, do bear in mind Dual Pack is readily available for purchase in America. You can find it at retail or online.
UPDATE: Sven has stepped in to comment. "It's a Gamestop exclusive. You'd have to ask Gamestop if they'd sent any North of the border." Not exactly the answer we were hoping for, so we're gonna have Still no word on that front, however. I've no news on that front at the moment. Stay tuned!
Thanks for the tip, folks.
