Brawl has officially gone gold in Japan. Which, for all of you who don't know:
So, in other words, Nintendo can add no more to the game. Everything that they wanted in the game is in. So, unless Megaman was either in before that podcast or they got him in in about a week...Going gold" in the world of software development is when you/your team completed the final product in the form of a "master disc". Now called the "gold master", this disc is sent to the factory to be duplicated into consumer copies.
It also of course seems as if Brawl will land on it's Jan. 24 date in Japan. Giving further hope that the delays are over.
Well I'll let you discuss.
(This may be old news for some. But, I figured an "official" announcement was in order)
