There have been reports and rumors flying around that the Nintendo 3DS will be released in October.
A senior publishing source has said that the title will launch several months before the end of the year.
“It’s a surprise – we were expecting it much closer to Christmas. But I suppose it gives Nintendo the opportunity to get it front and centre in people’s minds nice and early,” the source told CVG.
An October launch would mean that gives Nintendo a 3 month run-up to Christmas and brings it in direct competition with Microsoft proposed launch dates of its Project Natal.
