At a media summit this morning in San Francisco, Nintendo of America's George Harrison (via MTV Multiplayer
) has confirmed that the US version of Smash Bros. Brawl
will follow in its Japanese brethren's
footsteps and be delayed until February 10, 2008.
The loss of this future bestseller during the holiday season will definitely sadden some fans (and Nintendo's profit margin), but then again Mario Galaxy
is also coming in November (so far as we know) and it was always uncharacteristic of Nintendo to space AAA-title releases so close together.
No word yet on a delay for PAL territories, though we suspect a similar fate.
