Collectors, a French company that publishes video games, which promised physical games of Nintendo Switch and PS4 In limited editions, it has received a lot of criticism from its customers in recent weeks.
The company was silent for a long time until, due to the delay of the games it promised to deliver, it triggered avalanche of complaints and PayPal disputes, as they remain late with no end date in sight.
In a desperate attempt to ensure customers that they were still working hard to deliver their first release to the Nintendo Switch, PankapuWarned Collectors took screenshots of the Nintendo Developer Portal, which is under NDA (confidentiality agreement), on Twitter:
Super rare games, another company that deals with Nintendo Switch's limited distribution games, found that there was no game code attributed to the physical launch of Pankapu from Warned Collectors, which means that the games have not yet gone into production: without a valid Nintendo game code, it is impossible for Warned Collectors to place an order for game cards. Without a game code, the game would not even enter LotCheck.
Only then do others understand what this means. No game code has been assigned to the Warned version, which means no order has been made with Nintendo yet. The order takes 4-8 weeks to take place. * if * they end up making an order with Nintendo. Do you have a time to wait?
