    That or that particular retailer didn't order much and place the blame on NoE.

    I bolded it out, it clearly states the publisher (which is Nintendo).

    Yes, we know it says that.

    But ShopTo could of said that because they didn't order much and is shifting the blame to Nintendo.

    Well, this seems to be good news for the Operation Rainfall people, so congratulations to them.

    Now maybe Nintendo will try to avoid underestimating their RPG fanbase next time.

    Agreeably, I certainly hope they learned from this: the risk they could've, nay, SHOULD'VE taken has cost them a lot of money. Putting their cash on the 3DS is so far not so worthwhile, but a game like Xenoblade would've certainly brought in big bucks to Nintendo as a whole.

    TL;DR Their loss, simple as that.

    It won't happen. If it does, I'll buy a hat and eat it.
