Our friends over at the Hylia have reported that the official release date for Phantom Hourglass in Europe has been set for October 19th, just 18 days after the American release. While it was estimated the release would be roughly around late October, early November, it is now official. Good news for gamers in Europe. At least there wasn’t the 3+ month gap like the difference between the Japan and US dates. The game is slated for release in just over a month on October 1st for Nintendo fans here in the states.
