Several game companies have announced delays in the wake of Friday's 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. Meanwhile, Irem's Disaster Report 4 was outright canceled. Originally scheduled for release this spring, the game takes place in a Japanese city during a major earthquake.

Other March releases delayed due to the recent natural disaster include Sega's Yakuza: of the End. According to Sega, 'various circumstances' were responsible for the game missing its March 17 release date. Sony used the same phrase in describing a similar delay for Motorstorm 3. Dragon Age: Origins - Awakenings will also miss its March 17 release in Japan. In addition, Microsoft announced plans to cancel a promotional Kinect tour scheduled to tour Japan.
