The Skyward Sword release date drama continues! This time we have a promotional packaging insert listing Skyward Sword for a Fall 2011 release. While this falls neatly in line with a “holiday” release, which traditionally means anything from late fall to early winter, it’s a lot more wide open.
Could the E3 “holiday” announcement have been a way of avoiding possible “delays” in case Nintendo couldn’t deliver on a commitment to an earlier fall release? Did all this stuff get printed before they decided to push the game back to the holidays? Or is there just some kind of mismatched information in terms of release announcements within Nintendo? You decide! Either way, “Fall 2011” sounds a lot better than “Holiday 2011.”
