Rumours suggest that the highly anticipated new handheld from Nintendo, the 3DS, could launch as soon as November 20 in Japan.
The potential leak has come in the form of a tweet by Japanese KeysFactory employee, Takahiro Amano. KeysFactory is a Japanese video game peripheral and accessory manufacturer that plans on releasing a variety of accessories for the 3DS.
Amano tweeted "On November 20, eleven 3DS products that we designed will go on sale all at once. People who are buying the 3DS, buy it at the same time!" and also provided a link to the companies home page.
The users account was deleted shortly after making the post, adding to the speculation that this was a genuine leak and Nintendo have taken swift action to suppress it.
If tradition holds true, we may be able to get our dirty mitts on the 3DS very soon. Both the Nintendo DS and the Wii had near-simultaneous worldwide launches, so hopefully the 3DS will follow suit.
