According to Andriasang, an ex peripheral maker with Japanese company Factory Keys has apparently outed a November 20 release date for Nintendo 3DS in Japan.

Known as nocchisan on Twitter, he tweeted that 11 peripherals he designed for the system will be coming out simultaneously with the release of the console itself.

That’s well and good. Except Nintendo hasn’t announced anything on an exact date for 3DS as yet, and won’t be until the end of the month at a press conference on September 29.

Since his tweet, nocchisan’s account has been deleted.

The only release timeline for it given by Nintendo is that it’ll be in all major regions by the end of March 2011.
