Super Mario Maker | FeaturedEarly this morning, Nintendo of America posted a press release containing release dates for the rest of its 2015 roster on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Highlights include release dates for Fatal Frame 5, (or as it’s now known, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water), Xenoblade Chronicles X, Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, Devil’s Third, Yoshi’s Wooly World and Star Fox Zero. Walmart will be selling an exclusive Super Mario Maker Wii U bundle as well. Here’s what you can expect from the big N for the remainder of 2015.

    Meanwhile in Europe:
    Woolly World was released two months ago and Devil’s Third is out on Friday.
    Seriously, NOA? Seriously?

      Release dates are complicated. A lot of it has to do with how a game competes with others released around the same time, and also to do with general work/holiday schedules of the target audience. Most likely, the delay is just part of a plan to maximize sales, and not anything malicious or lazy.

      If it was anything up to a month delay, I’d understand.
      But more than a three month wait for a same-language release is just so much bullshit these days.

      Part of me’s laughing his arse off that it’s the Muricans who have to suffer this time.
      But still.

      There’s almost certainly a reason for it. Not like they’ll tell us what it is, though. They’ll keep it to themselves and then quietly be annoyed with us for not understanding, and we might hear an ex-employee leak it at some point in the future (and express his annoyance that we didn’t know what they never told us).
