    Alright guys found this news in the Cube3 website and for all the people that live in Europe, gotta read this news right below as well, just gotten worse. :yikes:

    Smash fans in Europe may just have to wait a little longer if recent reports are to be believed.

    According to the 1up podcast Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime was questioned on why Mario Kart and Wii Fit were heading to Europe before the US. Reggie supposedly replied "because they won't get Brawl until Fall (Autumn)".

    That said, releases dates have always been known to change, especially with Nintendo's bigger IPs. Hopefully Europe will at enter the battle for a summer season of Smash.

    Yeah they get Mario Kart Wii on April 11th before us and for us its sometime in Q2 2008 as well.. but I rather play Brawl first ya know, its one of the biggest games for the wii as well.

    Yeah I agree. Both games will be huge, but brawl will be slightly better IMO.

    I also agree with that. I don't understand why some countries get games released later than other countries. I just don't see why europe don't get it the same time as us.

    Now when we finally get games early there has to be a reason?!

    I'm sick of getting games late and this just makes things worse, forget Snakers and press ups....I want Nintendo to care about PAL

    Screw NTSC getting a game a month late...we wait pretty much several months late for every game.

    Why cant they have a world release like what mircosoft does they realeased Halo 3 on the same date everywhere even though australia got it before becuase of the time zone thing, Nintendo should just release the games all at once

    Wow, I thought June was a little late for Europe to get the game, but Fall now?
    Thats just crazy, I don't see how or why they could do that.

    But like others have said, you do get Mario Kart before us and Wii Fit as well I believe, so its not all bad news. Brawl though should be a little closer to the release date in North America, Fall is unfair.

    I do. Example:
    No more Heroes is still selling well in the US. If Brawl were to release now, the sales would conflict. Consumers would be tempted to choose between them instead of getting both. Most gamers cant afford to buy 2 new games at the same time.
    I didnt mean to sound rude.

    After SSBB is released, it would be ideal for Nintendo to withold Mario Kart untill, IMO, November, since Brawl will need to be distributed over time to meet it's presumably rediculously high demand. The UK gets Mario Kart quickly, so it makes sense to have them wait untill, say....Septemberish?
    Patients brings goodies!
    I dont mind the wait personnaly. If I lived in the UK, I wouldnt exactly be happy to hear this, but I understand.
    For what it's worth, Australia might not get it even longer. [/Sympathy]
