Looks like some people who want to own Sonic Colours Ultimate physically will be waiting a bit longer than expected. SEGA of Europe has announced that unforeseen logistical problems have caused a delay in shipments of the game to most EMEA countries, the only exceptions being Australia and New Zealand. This means that anyone in Europe, the Middle East, or Africa who’s pre-ordered the game won’t be getting it at the same time as the rest of the world.
SEGA of Europe hasn’t yet elaborated on what these logistical problems are, but did specify that this will not be affecting the game’s digital release in these regions. Sonic Colors Ultimate will be going on sale on September 7 in the Americas, Australia and New Zealand, and September 9 in Japan and Asia. Anyone who’s pre-ordered the digital deluxe version of the game will be able to play it September 3.
Stay tuned to Sonic Stadium as this story develops.
