A photo of a pre-order card for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.
, supposedly from retail store Fred Meyer, has allegedly pegged the date that Nintendo's brawler will arrive in North America as November 21. Twitter user BluesDriveBuster shared
the photo last evening, accompanied by text reading, "Official Smash WiiU release."
It should be noted however, that this is not
an official release date, at least not one formally announced by Nintendo; we've yet to hear such a date from the big N itself. Even the pre-order card states that the release date supposedly printed on the label is subject to change.
Still, considering that Nintendo hasn't yet backed off of its previously-announced
"winter 2014" release window and that November 21 is a Friday - a day of the week which Nintendo is fond
of releasing major games
on - there's enough substance here to make this supposed leak at least somewhat believable. Not enough that you should take it at face value of course, but enough that it's worth acknowledging.
