Nintendo confirms you won't be able to buy Kid Icarus: Uprising from GAME/Gamestation

Points to other UK shops as alternatives.

Nintendo has confirmed that 3DS game Kid Icarus: Uprising won't be available to buy in GAME and Gamestation.

Its list of shops selling the 3DS title does not include the struggling high street retailer - thought to be facing administration.

Uprising will be available to buy on the high street from the following shops: Argos, Asda, Blockbuster, Tesco, Dixons Stores Group, GameStop, HMV, Sainsbury's, Smyths Toys and Toys R Us.

Online, you can get it from Amazon, The Hut, JohnLewis.com, Littlewoods.com, Play.com, zavvi.co.uk, ShopTo.net, and "most good games retailers", Nintendo said.

You can pre-order from Amazon.co.uk, GameStop, Littlewoods.com, Play.com, Shop.To.net and zavvi.co.uk. It launches on Friday, 23rd March.

The news comes as no surprise: GAME failed to stock many of Nintendo's 2012 games, including The Last Story and Mario Party 9, and the Nintendo distributed Tekken 3D: Prime Edition.
