Nintendo cools Heroes of Ruin GAME exclusivity claims

Heroes of Ruin may not be a GAME exclusive after all, Nintendo has said.

GAME yesterday announced that it will be the only retailer stocking the game in the UK.

However, having contacted MCV to say that no decision has yet been made, a statement issued to MCV says: Nintendo UK can confirm it is currently in discussion with UK retailers about the sale of Heroes of Ruin for Nintendo 3DS.

However, we have nothing further to announce on this title beyond the recent distribution agreement with Square Enix Europe.”

Speaking of which, Nintendo has been confirmed as the distribution partner of the Square Enix game throughout EEA, Switzerland, Russia, Turkey and South Africa.

Heroes of Ruin will be released on 3DS on June 15th.

That's essentially what the platform allows."
