That's a very nice excuse...
Uh...yes. It is. It's not going to spike up a ton, because it's simply not easily available everywhere.
The game didn't do poorly...just not what people expected. Japan's market is weird...they don't seem to want Mario Galaxy or Zelda as much as casual games for Wii...they still buy it quite a bit, but I'm pretty sure the American and European markets will sell considerably better, possibly double Japan's. It just seems like hype is bigger over here for it than Japan.
