Several reports are claiming the release initially said the game would be delayed by three months, but has now been changed.

This Game Watch piece says only that the racer’s been postponed, and a new date is to be announced.

The game was scheduled to hit Japan in March.

“Whoops”. No date had been given for the hugely anticipated title in the US or Europe.
