The digital release will still be going ahead on May 19th in North America and May 22nd in Europe so if you’ve opted for those then you will be unaffected.

In our review for The Wonderful 101 Blair wrote:
The Wonderful 101 is a really great title that is quite unique in its direction. While the first half of the game really struggles, it picks up the pace (and scale) as it continues, with the brilliant characters – as if they’re action figures but don’t quite know that – paving a path of destruction in their defence against the Geathjerk.
It’s a great start for what could hopefully become Nintendo’s next big IP. Let’s hope, as with Mario and Zelda before it, we’ll see The Wonderful 101 return on each of Nintendo’s platforms for at least the next twenty years.
