Nintendo may have take steps in regards to the broken street date for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS video games, “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” According to a report by Kotaku on Oct. 3, an individual that was leaking several images with the retail release of the titles recently took down all of his pictures.
He hinted that a representative from Nintendo came to the local game shop where he managed to buy an early copy of the product. The spokesperson stated that “heads were rolling” at the company due to the leaks. As a result, the individual ended up returning the “Pokemon X” video game. You can check out some screenshots from the two titles in the slideshow near the top of this article and the comments from the individual responsible for the leaks below (courtesy of Kotaku):
Nintendo flew a representative out this afternoon and went to the local game shop where I picked up X. The Nintendo rep had said heads were rolling at Nintendo because of the leaks. I gave up my copy of the game to try and help keep the local game shop out of trouble and to keep my friend from losing his job.
“Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” are officially set to launch in North America and other regions on Oct. 12. However, Nintendo shipped both titles more than a week in advance. Several players managed to get early copies of the handheld role-playing games.
Nintendo is the publisher and distributor of “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y,” both of which were developed by the same Game Freak studio that worked on the prior mainline entries of the series. The video games are launching with a price tag of $39.99 each. You can pre-order the products from Amazon in the following links: “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y”
