A Konami representative told Ripten, "Unfortunately Book of Memories has been delayed." No rationale for the delay was provided, and as of press time, Konami had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
Though Konami has not offered a new release date for Book of Memories, retailers indicate the game will ship in either April or May. A listing at Best Buy points to an April 15 release, and Amazon and GameFly indicate the game will ship on May 31.
