Take this with several bucketfulls of salt, but a French commuter newspaper called 20Minutes recently reported that the 3DS is due for release on March 19, exactly two months after the event where Nintendo intends to officially announce information for the system’s debut in Europe (and likely the U.S. as well). This “leak” of information sounds eerily similar to other supposed “reports” on the handheld’s launch date which later proved to be false, so there’s a
whale-sized likelihood that this is also a fake or approximated date.
What this rumor does have going for it, though, is that the Japanese release date, February 26, also falls on a Saturday. What, that’s not meaningful enough to matter? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. Check back here on January 19 for the latest bona fide announcements from Nintendo.
