"We recently contacted you regarding the status of your order for
Suikoden Tierkreis on Nintendo DS.
At the time, we were attempting to locate stock of the product, and were
hoping to have been able to despatch your game to you as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we are unable to get stock of this game as the
manufacturers have already deleted it from their catalogue, and they are
not making any more. As such we have no option but to cancel your order.
Rest assure that no payment has been taken from your card.
We apologise wholeheartedly for letting you down in this way. It's a
rare occurrence for games to be made in such small pressings, and
unfortunately it caught us out this time.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you."
Deleted from their catalogue less than a week after release O_o?!
Then a later message from Konami UK...

I find this very hard to believe, but if other people in the UK can confirm this it would be a great help.
