On Monday, a handful of games were delayed in Japan. One title, Disaster Report 4, was shelved altogether for obvious reasons. But the game delays aren't over.


Besides zombie title Yakuza: Of The End and apocalyptic racing game Motorstorm 3, other games that are being delayed in Japan are Xbox 360 title Dragon Age: Origins, Nintendo's Steel Diver for the 3DS and PSP game Haruhi Suzumiya's Majhong, as well as Toaru Kagaku no Railgun for the PSP.

However, there are reports online that Toaru Kagaku no Railgun was delayed in advance of last Friday's earthquake.

Major League Baseball 2K11 and Top Spin 4, which were both expected to be out this April in Japan, were delayed today, too. No word on when the games will be released.

In the press release for Steel Driver's delay, Nintendo did not explicitly mention the earthquake as the reason why the game will miss its intended March 17 release; however, Nintendo said the game was being held for "various reasons".

Steel Driver is a side-scrolling, underwater action game. No word whether Nintendo is holding up the Western release of Steel Driver, which is pegged for March 27.

Ryuuga Hideki - Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Disaster Report 4? Is that the one game that was announced alongside the Wii that never seemed to materialize? I thought it was Day of Disaster, but you know how names change.
