UK version of Capcom Puzzle World ships with showstopping bug

It looks like Europeans can’t catch a break today. Mario Party gets recalled three days after release, and now we find out that anticipated collection Capcom Puzzle World shipped with a crash bug.

“It seems to affect the Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo part of the puzzle bundle primarily, freezing the game within a few minutes of starting. We managed a couple of rounds with our European promo copy before it locked up on a load-screen.”

I’m not naive enough to believe that every game that ships is 100% bug free. For some reason it was made public well over a month before release that this bug existed. What’s particularly perplexing is that a bug this easy to reproduce was able to get through QA.
