People who pre-ordered their copy of Mario Golf from the Nintendo store UK, will have received an email over the weekend to apologise for an apparent hold up due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
All of those customers that pre-ordered online with Nintendo will be excited to read further. As a way of apology, and so customers can still get to play their game on day of release, Nintendo have provided those that pre-ordered with a download code of the game free of charge. Customers have also been reassured that their physical copy of Mario Golf will be with them at the end of the following week.
Some of you may be thinking that having two copies of the game is a little stupid and it may not be ideal for those people with little space left on their memory card, but either way I don’t know many companies that are willing to give a free copy of the game away for an error that is their own fault.
From what I can see, many retailers have received stock of the game, although it appears it may be limited in numbers. So what the true cause of these ‘unforeseen circumstances’ are is still a mystery.
Either way this is great customer service and a great way to restore peoples faith in Nintendo’s ability to deliver (literally). Mario Golf has been removed from the website for now but keep an eye on the Nintendo store if you are wanting to pick up a copy with an exclusive Mario cap!
