$14.18 wasted????

ok, so last month, I bought Call of duty: Zombies for ¥1,200 ($9.99)+¥shin no numa map which cost $600(4.99) and had fun with it. but when it the new OS4 came out, the game started to crash and it had been pulled out on the Appstore(I am using the Japanese one). The Following day, I started to check the game on my US account, and like, they just had had an update and is present on the store. Right after I saw that, I frantically took my iTouch and went to the Japanese iStore but it was not there. I've been waiting about a week now for the game to be restored back again with its update but I'm afraid that they will not put it back again because GTA: Chinatown is also not available on Japanese iStore.

any help and suggestions will be pretty much, appreciated. yoroushiku

Right now, I'm thinking of going to Apple Store Shibuya and ask if I could "refund" my money back.

P.S: I think my English is horrible lol~

Can't comment on your situation, but your English is better that many

That sucks dude. Try emailing iTunes support, they can be very helpful and timely.

Tried that before but it didn't work. And like, I don't speak Japanese fluently so they might just ignore me. X(.
