Coming soon?

When playing the waiting game it’s always nice to see a light in the dark – no matter how dim.

An account on Twitter, “nochisan,” which has since been deleted entirely, posted an update that seemed to contain knowledge as to the Japanese release date of the Nintendo 3DS. ย The post in question reads as follows (translated from Japanese):

“On November 20th, the 11 goods I designed for use with the 3DS will go on sale simultaneously. Those of you buying the 3DS, please buy them while you’re at it! This will be officially announced on the homepage eventually, lol. Best regards.”

Though one can’t be sure if it’s a valid claim or not, it’s certainly something to keep in mind.

Nintendo is expected to confirm a release date for the 3DS at a press conference on September 29th, so we won’t have to wait too long to find out!

    this is the japanese release date, don't expect this thing in the us or uk till next year…trust.

    • Tayo

      Actually, the Nintendo DS was released in the U.S. before it was in Japan. It came out November 21st in the U.S. and December 2nd in Japan. This goes the same for the Wii. So it's safe to assume that in these current generations, the 3DS will at least come out around the same time in the U.S. as in Japan, if not sooner.

      • ThatOneGuy

        Things from Nintendo come out in the U.S. before Japan?! I'm mind blown! Why the heck do I have to wait half a year after it comes out in Japan for Pokemon Black/White to come to the U.S.? Hopefully what you're saying will apply to Skyward Sword and it will come out here at about the same time as in Japan.

  • If it is in November, then I'll have to skip buying a 3DS. I'm still saving up for a car, and besides, Christmas isn't too far from that. Other than this, I'm mainly looking forward to Skyward Sword because, 1), It's supposed to come sooner than the new OoT, 2), I already have a Wii, and 3), in this economy we have to take special care on how we spend our money.

    What happened to the Taco show? It was like…. Removed from existance and replaced with this.

    • ChainofTermina

      yeah, that was weird.

      • enteinater

        I asked in the taco show forum and apparently it was taken down for reviewing because to many people were whining about how it's inappropriate, Even though they put a big old warning on it!

        • ChainofTermina

          who was complaining? there was only one comment that said that.

          • enteinater

            Really cause like all the comments on the page where negative except one dude who was spamming positive comments.

            Wait I wasn't talking about in the Taco Show forum.
            I was talking about on the actual news post were you could listen to it.
            Where are you talking about???

          • ChainofTermina

            I was talking about the same thing, the main post here on the main site. I kept checking back again and again and there was only one comment. it was complaining about how the thing was offensive and stuff, and it had a bunch of thumbs down, but it was still only one comment. nobody else was saying anything.

          • It was later in the night when the majority of the comments started to spill in.

          • ChainofTermina

            hmm, weird. I must have been busy that night or something.

          • enteinater

            yeah it got really bad and it's still not back. ๐Ÿ™

  • All I want for Christmas and my birthday are gift cards, so by February I'll hopefully have enough money to buy a 3DS. I hope they come out in November though, because it'll be much easier to find one three or four months after the release than right when it comes out. It took us a few months to find a Best Buy with a Wii.

  • Ashmic

    I hate these small game systems, they hurt my eyes (im 18) and i rather have a larger system i can sit on my ass and play, so I say i WISH Skyward sword was november and not the 3DS. ocarina of time was better anyway, remaking it is careless and we kno just a plight to get more money (nintnedo, whoring your characters out, one day at a time) besides, 3DS a new concole in the making as we spead to replace wii, i hate this, I WISH we could trade in old systems for new ones that PLAY all the old ones, I wasted money on this wii who has about 5 good dames, when the Xbox has about 20, don't get me wrong Im a nintendo fan but are ANY of you questioning the fact that nintendo doesn't care anymore? They are disapointing their fans, and even the hardcore fans are admiting this…..

    btw this is an opinion so don't freak out, lame me, and foam at the mouth

    • Volroc

      the dont care part i agree on the rest, not at all :/

      • Ashmic

        thats why its an opinion

    • What can't you play on your Wii? You have the entire GameCube library and a sizable classics listing as well, unless you wanted to hold onto your save data. I'm not freaking out, just wondering. You aren't obligated to upgrade if you don't want to, and that goes for the 3DS too. And as for why you can't trade in old systems for new, Nintendo would lose billions on that, if the only system you bought was your old NES and you just traded up. They can't resell or reuse a used NES, and you'd get a free system. But for trade-ins, just go to GameStop. I'm really excited for OoT 3D. I've never totally finished the game, although I've gotten almost all the way. I just never had the time, and it's too difficult between working, college, and other obligations to sit down with a console game. Having it on a portable system for a change would give me the freedom to play at lunch, in bed, in the bathroom, in class…. you get the picture. ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Ashmic

        Well I can play on my wii but think about all the new zelda games on the newer systems that many can't afford, one, that encourages emulation (which is free) and two, that turns people off and angers them. And that's one of the points I was stating… Nintendo losing billions, lol they're not even a gaming company anymore they just want money money money they don't care anymore at least that's what it appears. And I know gamestop trades in, buts its ridiculous, I returned a game I bought, BRAND new 50 bucks, used literally once, they gave me an offer of 18 bucks, are you kidding me? If I traded in a new wii, band new, they're probably give me 50, out of the 200 i bought it for, Which is useless if your trying to get enough for a new console. And yes the wii is useful, but why don't they put these games on the wii, its been done, especially if you can put it on a computer and make it work,
        because they want more money, more for the game and the console, im not going further into this because everytime i seem to put an OPINION people don't like, they freak out about it, and i know this because When i put favorable opinions, people react good to it, its trivial sometimes, i don't know why I keep comin back here, but its not fair everyone should have a voice, ya know

        • Ashmic

          i meant, put DS games on the wii

          • kokiri star

            SO basically you want nintendo to stop making money and re-releasing games via virtual console…so no money=no new games for you to play and no virtual console means u cant legetimatly play older ones…let me know how that works out for you.

            P.s Welcome to life …people charge for the products they spend years and millions of pounds creating for you, not surprising is it really?

          • ashmic

            lol you know what this is a place where people comment and share there view calm down and be respectful to others words the way you are suppose to act , "welcome to life" what a dick thing to say, really. i did nothing to you calm down. jesus christ

          • No, dude, you need to calm down and stop throwing your expletives around.

        • ThatOneGuy

          How can you emulate a Zelda game with 1:1 motion controls on the computer and have it work, especially when a lot of the fights and puzzles of the game are going to be based around it?

      I'd be glad to if you provided a link. I'm lazy.

    • enteinater

      Please typing in all caps is
      1. really annoying.
      2. the equivalent of yelling which isn't very nice.

      I really don't mind people who support something but if you could just refrain from yelling it would be greatly appreciated.

      Also please do not just post the same message multiple times I believe that is called spamming. I am not the best with internet terminology so please don't respond like that's not what spamming is idiot.


      • They're still doing this?

    Is OoT 3DS supposed to be a launch title for the system? I don't think it'd be ready by November 20…
