It's possible that we might get SSB4 earlier than we expected, but I would bet that it is more likely to be placeholder for newegg.com

These dates never seem to pan out, but I hope it's true. I'll get a Wii U whenever it comes out.

Make no sense as it would be around the same time as Mario Kart 8.

Smash Bros isn't coming out the same time as Mario Kart. Although I would love for it to happen.

Smash and Mario Kart launched a month apart on Wii, no? In the US, they surely did.

Doubt this is likely because we probably won't get Zelda U next fall. They'll need this.

Smash Bros is going to be coming earlier than people suspected. Brawl came out about a year and a half after the Wii came out, so I can imagine the same kind of release area for this one. Late Q1/Early Q2 is my guess. The game has also been in development since May 2012, so yeah.

To defend my reason to make a thread based on that because I recalled that I have heard of rumors about Smash 4 and Mario Kart 8's release dates a month or couple of months ago.

SSB4 - May 2014 and Mario Kart - April 2014.

However, please take it with grain of salts.

I don't exactly doubt it'd be ready by then, but I assume Nintendo would want it as their holiday title or something.

Yeah considering they already have Mario Kart in the spring, they don't need Smash Bros. as well. Dropping the Wii U's 2 biggest games within 2 months of one another would likely be a mistake.

Remember Brawl released a month before Mario Kart Wii.

It's not impossible, but really unlikely.

As long as both versions release some point next year, i'm happy.

I think it was NOE that let slip that it was April, it was on twitter IIRC, I made a thread, I'll check.

Edit: Found it, not NOE specifically, but seemingly from Nintendo in EU somewhere (not sure of the language):

Not with Directs. They can make whatever announcements they need to with those. The same people who will likely pay attention to something like E3 would be paying attention to the Directs as well. I mean, they announced X in a Nintendo Direct in February.

I always figured April or May. They aren't going to sit on this until fall. I can see them desperately hoping this holiday begins a turn around then Feb release DK. March or April release Mario Kart then in May or so slam the juggernaut of Smash Bros out.

We'll definitely get it before 2015, assuming the game doesn't hit production delays.

Iwata is specifically rushing development to boost the Wii U's lineup.


But I agree...May 2014 is way too early, unless they're making this game light in content compared to previous iterations.

Well the game supposed to be a 2014 title and I guess it really depends on how many people they have working on it.

I'm not crazy about extra features, but it feels like it will be an ultra lean game if it's that soon. I can wait if we get more characters and stages.

Don't get cynicism, it happened before. Plus Zelda 2014 also seems pretty likely.

We need a Direct, sooner than later.

Bullshit. I figure they'd want to wait for another E3 at least to give the Wii U another marketing/publicity push. SSB is gonna be a big hit, and I think the press at another E3 will be of help to them.

No way in hell. Unless Zelda U somehow manages to release in fall 2014 (it won't), there is no way Smash isn't their big November release.

They need to try and keep whatever boost they gain from the holidays and try to keep that train rolling. I expect a somewhat heavy first half as far as 1st party titles then a weaker 2nd half with X and Zelda being the key 2nd half titles.

Exactly.

Ever since Mario Kart 7 came out with a light amount of content (it felt a bit rushed), I'm worried that Iwata is prioritizing early releases over bulky games for their core IPs.

Unless nintendo is REALLY desperate for some WiiU releases....

Which reminds me ... is it CONFIRMED that both versions will be released at the same date ?
