Sony have confirmed the UK release date for Motorstorm: Apocalypse to be March 31st, report MCV and VG247. Delayed out of respect for the situation in Japan in the wake of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami, the racer is now due to hit British shelves next Thursday.
Speaking last week, a rep for SCEE had stated the following:
'We are shocked and saddened to see the impact of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and our thoughts are with all those affected, including our colleagues within the Sony family, living and working throughout Japan.
'We are very conscious of the parallels between these events and the underlying theme in Motorstorm and are doing everything we can to be as sensitive as possible to the situation. Although the game itself is already in distribution, we are ceasing any further shipments and removing as much of the marketing materials as possible.'
The US version is still delayed indefinitely at the time of writing.
