Instead of arriving in stores on February 10, Super Smash Brothers Brawl is scheduled to arrive on March 9 in North America. Japan’s release date is also pushed back a week, but only for a week. The new release date is January 31 instead of January 24. The timing of the delay raised a flag because Super Smash Brothers Brawl must be mostly complete if it is only delayed a week in Japan. However, North America’s delay is nearly a month. Perhaps, localization is going slower than expected or Nintendo is tweaking network settings for a larger land mass. Hmm… or Nintendo is trying to position Super Smash Brothers Brawl or Professor Layton and the Curious Village in a better place. With the Smash Brothers delay Layton should have a much better chance in the marketplace. Be sure to check it out on February 11.
