Sonic Heroes in 2004 for Europe?

Sonic Heroes. One of the most anticipated games of the year. First Americans were told to wait 16th-ish January 2004 for the game, while Japan had it coming mid December ’03. Europe was unconfirmed.

SEGA Europe treated us to a 5th December release date for Heroes, something so that us Europeans could be thankful for living in the hell-hole of games releases (not including New Zealand and Australia) for once.

Then the US release date went FORWARD (very uncommon), the Jap release got pushed BACK and the European release was still the same. It’s most likely that there was some miscommunication, but apparently SEGA Europe assured everyone the date of Heroes will be before the Japanese release date.

5th December has come and gone, and no Sonic Heroes. It looks like the online shops are right about the game being pushed back as far as FEBRUARY 2004 for Europe. At present we’re contacting SEGA Europe about this, but at the moment, it looks like there’ll be no promised Sonic this Christmas for us Europeans. Shame that.
