Yakuza and Motorstorm delays too late to stop retailers from getting copies

The delay for the release of Yakuza: of the End and Motorstorm: Apocalypse in Japan was announced shortly after last week’s earthquake and tsunami. However, it seems that the decision to postpone the release of these disaster-themed titles may have come too late, as copies have already begun arriving at retailers.

A employee at an unknown Japanese retailer anonymously revealed that his workplace received sixty copies of Yakuza and four of Motorstorm. He posted photos on his blog, and says that all the games will be sent back to their publishers.

It’s unlikely that this was the only retailer that received copies. With more retailers receiving copies of Yakuza: of the End and Motorstorm: Apocalypse, it seems likely that the delayed games will begin to discretely move off of some store shelves ahead of schedule.
