    Ironfall returns no search results:
    Today, Nintendo of Europe pulled Ironfall Invasion from the eShop in European regions, presumably because of hacker Smealum's claims that it can be used to run Ninjhax 2.0. NOTE: This does not affect the North American or Japanese eShops in any way!

    UPDATE: As of 3:40 PM Eastern it's been pulled from all eShops.

    The one big question I have is: why only Europe?

    Could be because the new 3DS is more popular in those regions?

    But yeah, I mean this was all expected kind of because we know one way or another they are gonna find ways to get rid of exploits

    Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of America operate independently, you should basically see them as separate companies.

    Plus, NoA might pull it later as well.

    Well yeah, it never was in the Japanese eShop to begin with. :P

    I should point out that in Europe, the update still appears; in NA, both the game and update are gone.
