Yesterday we reported that Super Smash Bros. Brawl was not included as part of Nintendo's European release schedule, which featured release dates for titles all the way up to June 2008. Given that the US release date is still set for early 2008, European and Aussie gamers alike were upset to see that they were seemingly once again missing out.
CVG reports that Nintendo has attempted to rectify this previous news with the following statement: "The Nintendo 1st & 3rd party Software lineup release schedule which was distributed by Nintendo on Thursday 6th December confirmed launch dates for Nintendo titles launching in Q1 2008. Nintendo also included some titles which were fixed for release beyond Q1 2008 such as Mario Kart Wii. All Nintendo software titles launching in Q2 2008 have not been finalised or confirmed to date. Nintendo will communicate on all software titles launching in Q2 2008 for Wii and Nintendo DS at a later date"
So it looks like Super Smash Bros. Brawl could indeed arrive before June after all... or is it just Nintendo damage control? We'll find out soon enough.
