Super Smash Bros. spring 2014 release window was a “misquotation”

Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U’s possible release in northern spring 2014, has been called a “misquotation” by Nintendo.

The release window was purportedly dropped during an interview with Nintendo Germany general manager Bernd Fakesch.

“There seems to be some buzz online today about the launch date of Super Smash Bros,” a Nintendo representative said in a statement provided to VG247. “We would like to clarify that the speculation about a Spring 2014 launch date for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U was the result of a misquotation in an interview.

“The original article has since been rectified and we have no further announcements to make at this time.”

The interview, translated by Gamespot, Fakesch was quoted by German source Neckar Chronik as expecting Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. to launch in spring.

Although it had already announced this window for Mario Kart 8, this was the first time a Nintendo representative had put a date to Super Smash Bros. Unfortunately, this was not the case after all.

Super Smash Bros. is coming to 3DS and Wii U, but unlike Mario Kart 8 has not yet begun press tours.

    Never. Unless you count Wii Fit and Wii Sport which means Xbox Fitness and The Playroom are considered new IPs.

    That said, I hope for Nintendo’s sake that this rumor is false because it would result in TWO super rushed games.
