Coming soon to a videogame store near you!

No, that’s the not the release date, you silly Zelda fan, you – that’s the date on which Nintendo will reveal the Japanese release date for the 3DS. And not just the release date, but the price as well!

According to Bloomberg, Nintendo PR manager Yasuhiro Minagawa revealed in a phone interview with them that they will make available the release date and price on September 29th.

Also, Bloomberg says that Nintendo plans to release the 3DS during this fiscal year. In Japan the fiscal year is from April 1 to March 31, so we could still have a bit of a wait. But that seems unlikely if at the end of September Nintendo is announcing a release date.

Keep your eyes on Zelda Universe on September 29th, as we will announce the release date here as soon as we are made privy to the knowledge.

    Oh man I gotta get saving

  • Weird, I thought I sent this news in already this mourning from the site Flames of Hyrule. Oh well. I can't wait for this!

    • Hm. It looks like you DID! Alas, we didn't notice that and got the story from Andriasang, but I'll credit the tip to you regardless. 😀

  • I like how you posted this exactly two months before the reveal. ;D

  • I got my hopes up the second I read the title, and then you crushed them with the first line of this article. Also, if it's just the release date for the Japanese, then whatever. I'm not gonna buy the Japanese version. Although, pricing may be important, considering I'm hoping to swindle my way outta this one again with getting the 3DS for a holiday, which for this thing, is most likely Easter. It can't be too expensive, or I'm gonna have to buy it myself.
