At any rate, I hope this sheds some light on the issue. Again, I'm sorry that we couldn't get this game to your consoles at the same time as places elsewhere, but I just wanted to point out some reasons why and say without spoiling any potential future plans that you guys are on our radar!
While I understand this is a business decision to not release in NZ, due to our market being too small and that we are basically at the mercy of the Aus classification board here, this is still very unpalatable and would have been nicer to know prior to the release of the game, rather than the day of. Had i known, that TWD was not going to gain release in NZ, I wouldn't have been so hyped for it and probably wouldn't have followed it as closely as I did hungering to play this game.
If we are such a small market, businesswise, I can't see how we could be on the radar unless there are plans to release TWD here (and AUS) come 2013 and the change to the r rating classification to the video game industry there. Can't come soon enough in my opinion.
