We’ve received a piece of unfortunate news about Starlink: Battle for Atlas, which launched earlier this week in the west.
It appears that the game has been delayed for Nintendo Switch (and other platforms) in the Middle East. Reasons are unknown at this time, but it could have something to do with the defective shipment Best Buy received in the states. The new release date is November 16, 2018.
Update: Ubisoft has provided the following message to NintendoSoup:
Head of communication and Localization for @UbisoftME here.
The article has some misinformation.
Starlink launched in MENA on digital on October 16, and the physical release will be slightly delayed due to shipment and stock logistics. Nothing severe to it.
