Smash Bros. delay agony continues

Retailers pushing back their delivery dates again

Online retailers across the US have pushed back their expected Super Smash Bros. Brawl release dates to March, suggesting a further delay to Nintendo's all-star fighter.

Originally planned for a Q4 2007 release (and even semi-promised as a Wii launch title by Miyamoto - what a joke that was), US gamers are looking forward to finally getting their hands on the game on February 10, but it seems the big launch may be put back further.

One retailer told a pre-order customer (and GameSpot forum-goer): "We just want to let you know that the release date of Super Smash Bros Brawl (Nintendo Wii) you ordered has been changed to 03/09/2008." That's March 9 to us Brits.

There's still no confirmed UK launch date either. It was missed off Nintendo's most recent Q1/Q2 release schedule, but Nintendo UK insisted that didn't mean the game wasn't out until Q3.

All this confusion over a bloody release date. Sort it out.
