Just Dance 2019 hit with a delay in Japan

Just Delay

Well this is a bit strange. Earlier this week, Ubisoft confirmed Just Dance 2019 for release in Japan, alongside news of a March 20th, 2019 release date. Just a couple days later, and that date has been taken back. Instead of launching on March 20th, 2019, Ubisoft now has the game listed as 'TBD.' We're not quite sure what could have gone wrong with the release date in the span of two days, but I guess it's pretty serious!
