Ranger: Shadows of Almia - For the Bride & Shaymin! US & EU Release Details

As we reported earlier this month, the final mission for Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is scheduled to go live in America tomorrow. This mission features a story of a Shaymin that runs away when it is meant to be present at a Wedding. As it is an Extra Mission and not a Special Mission, Shaymin is not transferrable to Diamond, Pearl or Platinum. In the US, this Wi-Fi Event mission is scheduled to go from March 1st 2009 to April 30th 2009.
However, today Nintendo of Europe announced that this final mission is also going to be available from tomorrow in Europe and will last until March 31st 2009, meaning its going to be around for a shorter length of time. To play this mission, you need to have beaten the game's main story, however you can download it at any time. Click the picture to go to the special page detailling all six Wi-Fi missions.
