I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break. We’re back this week with screens from the only notable DS release in 2012 (unless there’s any surprise announcements in the new year, of course), Devil Survivor 2. There’s also a couple of “man, Japan gets all the best stuff” stories, which I realize are kind of cliche, but they are also completely true.
Mario Kart 7 is out on Friday in Europe! GET HYPE! Nintendo of Europe has announced today that Hori’s Mario Kart 7 Wheel peripheral (pictured) will be in shops on the same day. In true NoE fashion, no price was given.

Looks like America’s not the only arm of Nintendo having problems with the free Zelda soundtrack giveaway: it appears that the European Club Nintendo has run out of it’s Ocarina of Time soundtrack stock. An ONM forum member contacted Nintendo and was told that the error messages people are seeing means that the full allocation (1000-2000 copies) has been filled. Nintendo.co.uk only specified that you’d need to register before June 30th, so that allocation is surprisingly small.
