In a weird occurrence, Portugal gets the good Captain a week before the rest of Europe. Oh, and he is not captaining alone any more.
While Portuguese Wii U owners will get the game January 2, the rest of Europe will enjoy his adventures a week later, January 9. I can but assume Portugal will leave Europe in 2015 and someone forgot to send the memo. Americans will have finished the game long before either, since the game comes out a whole month earlier.
*Update* Confirmed, Spain also get the game a week earlier. ¡Olé!
