They said it would be out during this summer though...and that is quite clearly the fall season...and it is close to the release of the Wii U version...
Welp, looks like the summer game drought continues on I guess. :/

Ugghh... They said it was coming put in Summer. I was looking forward to playing it! :/

What's the point of even releasing them separately if the dates are that close?

double post.

that's rather disappointing, I was looking forward to playing this game during my vacation.

So no game developer ever thinks about vacation time, or school schedules, or empty game release periods?
"NOPE! Christmas. Ship it for Christmas."

Well October 3rd according to my calendar is a Friday. Not only that but Nintendo is honestly one of the few game companies that can basically release a game on whatever date they want. It's the smaller ones that will have even more trouble stepping around their release dates.

Still doesn't fix the summer drought though. Many people, myself included, were hoping for Smash Bros during summer like was said in the Smash Direct to tide us over. Now the summer drought is in full swing, and it'll be dull and sad.

I had no doubt they were going to push it back to the Fall Christmas Blitz.
It's what you do when you're trying to boost end profits.

On the bright side, someone owes me 20 bucks now.

Yeah. But I think in the Direct they had bugs that needed fixing so they delayed it? Or at least that's what they implied. For me it's a little bit better since I recently bought Metroid Prime 1 and 2 for the Gamecube and I have a backlog of DS games that I always wanted to play but didn't have the money for. Right now I'm going through Mario 64 DS and looking out for Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
