Mario Party 8, which was originally slated for release this Friday, has been delayed until July 13th. That's like Friday, only much later. Nintendo cites some kind of "production issue with the English version," which, in light of recent history, can mean only one thing: they're being forced to tone down the brutal violence.
This only affects the English release, and not other European versions. So there are other options if you're in a huge hurry to get the game, for some reason.
