At any rate something is up and it is gone so for now we wait again. In the meantime those that have it, more impressions please! Trying to figure if this is the direct DS port or a different port.
I think the game was Assasins Creed 2 by Ubisoft

I just had a thought....does anyone here have access to the NZ store? I wonder if the game was pulled there too.

When a game is pulled it's removed from all stores

New impressions could ease the pain of those waiting... (SUBTLE HINT).

Meantime...I'm trying to erase my backlog....I know that when PQ2 will arrive, I'll play almost no other game (about to finish the story mode in LEGO HARRY POTTER right now).

Well in the meantime not much else anyone can do except go eat lunch. In the meantime those that have a copy of it can anyone explain the tournament mode?

I am enjoying it..... the load times are not the greatest. For example, after completing a battle, the pop up for the next part of the quest can take a few minutes on the screen. I know it is pulling up your gold and xp etc, but it is very tedious.

Combat works fine though.

Well I contacted Namco via Facebook to see if someone would comment on why the game was released then pulled, I'll let everyone know if I hear anything.

I am happy that I decided to stay up last night and lucked out on picking this up. I have only had a chance to play through the opening battles in the village but it is a very fun and addictive game just like the first one was for me. I think the gameplay is fun and enthralling but all the loading kind of takes you out of it.

That's not always true. iPint is still available in the UK, for example. But this game does appear to have been removed from all stores.
