    Mario Kart out before Brawl in australia

    Mario Kart set to beat Super Smash Bros. to the punch

    by: Chris Stead 20/02/2008

    Whenever Nintendo prepares to fire off one of its big guns into the faces of its millions of fans, it seems like the entire world stops to join in the fun. The company has the finest track record in the industry and is famed for its brilliant game design. Already the Wii has been blessed with Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3, Super Paper Mario and Super Mario Galaxy and in early 2008 we have all waited in giddy excitement for the release dates of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii. Well we don’t have the answer to those questions just yet, but we do have some interesting news…

    Mario Kart on Wii could be releasing as early as March in Australia, but will definitely be out before Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    We were informed by Nintendo Australia this morning that Mario Kart would be in journalist’s hands in March, and that it would see its way onto shelves before Brawl. Does this mean that Mario Kart will actually be out in March? Possible, but unlikely given that the game will not hit Japanese homes till April – it does however indicate that we will not be at the mercy of Nintendo’s notoriously whimsical release strategy for months beyond that.

    It does mean though that Super Smash Bros. Brawl’s release date in Australia, and possibly other PAL territories, is still very much in the wind. Some reports have suggested that it will not hit Europe until June, some four months away!

    So Mario Kart before brawl: that’s the big surprise. Many of us had expected the long coming Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which is already out in Japan and which we’ve already reviewed (!!) to well and truly beat Mario Kart Wii to stands. A game that by comparison has casually crept up over the last few months with the odd screenshot leak or brief hands-on. But now it looks like Mario Kart will be out much sooner than its beat ‘em up buddy.

    So it’s a case of good and bad news for the Nintendo faithful. Unless we hear otherwise, Mario Kart Wii will be with us in a matter of weeks, but Brawl in a matter of months. Why the Brawl delay? Localisation seems unlikely, as the yanks will be getting the game in March and they more or less speak English… perhaps it is about giving each territory time to iron out the wrinkles of the game’s Wi-Fi feature? We’ll see what we can find out, but expect the Mushroom Kingdom to keep its secrets closer than Paper Mario’s eyes.

    In other Nintendo news, an Aussie release date for Wii-Fit should be announced very soon.

    It should be noted that this is pertaining to PAL regions only.

    Thats great news for them. Atleast they don't have to wait too long for this title.

    ^To my knowledge, PAL regions are yet to recieve a release date for Brawl. Could the date you're talking about possibly be a placeholder?

    ^I'm pretty sure that Mario Kart is going to come out at roughly the same time in both North American and PAL regions. I don't see why it wouldn't.

    I'm not sure which I'm more excited for, really. Maybe Mario Kart. Either way, March and April will be the cause of my lack of social life. Mario Kart,SSB, De Blob, and some old games I haven't gotten around to buying.
