Here’s A Look At The Internal Release Dates For Nintendo

An internal document leaking Nintendo's tentative release schedule for the rest of this year has been made available online.

Yesterday we finally got a release date of August 4th for Pikmin 3, but it turns out the above memo that has been circulating around 4chan’s /v/ community was leaked before the Nintendo PR email that went out confirming the release date. With that in mind, let’s have a look at what’s on the docket for future release.

Perhaps one of the most interesting things on this sheet is the fact that Super Mario Galaxy 2 seems to have been in consideration as a port from Wii to Wii U. The release was supposed to include a soundtrack CD, but it looks as if this project has been put on hold. Moving on from there, we see several accessory releases scheduled and The Wonderful 101 set for some time in July. (3DS, Nintendo, Wii U)

Hard to tell

lol, the fact that the title of the document is "Super Secret" leads me to believe that this is completely fabricated.

But if it is accurate, then this fall looks to be a good season for the Wii U.
Commandar_Shepard  +   956d ago
This. The title and the fact that every game we hardly know much about is listed for Fall instead of specific months or Holiday makes me very skeptical.
MikeMyers  +   956d ago
Bayonetta 2
Mario Kart
Super Smash Bros

All listed for Fall? Yeah sure. As if Nintendo would release Super Smash Bros., Zelda, and Mario Kart in the same season, let alone the same year.
Zhipp  +   956d ago
I don't believe it either. That said, if, by some miracle, this list is right, and Smash Bros launches this Fall, I will shit myself. I can already feel my bowels roiling at the very thought.
AJBACK2FRAG  +   956d ago
I hear you. Mario Kart U and Super Smash Bros. U are supposed to be shown playable at e3 right?
TotalSynthesisX  +   955d ago
I hear ya, bro. Smash4life.

Excellent detective work!

Alternatively, you could have noticed that the list has several release dates that have already passed which do NOT match up with the actual release dates of those games (i.e. Fire Emblem Awakening) indicating that the list is undoubtedly fake.

I literally lol'd when I went to the page and saw that.

Anyways, even if it is real, it is old. Wonderful 101 had a July release date on the systems launch. It got pushed back about a month after the system launch. Then of course many of those other titles weren't known about, and it's unlikely they would have a "Super Secret" document like this floating around to begin with, even if internal.

I do believe the Pikmin release date was rumored a month or so ago before this document popped up.

Dates may be fake but it goes to show you they have some great games coming to the Wii U.
PopRocks359  +   957d ago
Man oh man if this list is real (which I don't believe because of the title like Neonridr said).
BlackWolf  +   957d ago
Seems pretty doubtful. It's better to be skeptical about this list. But if it turns out to be true, the system's sales could go up a lot in fall.

I highly doubt a company would put SUPER SECRET bolded and in a different font on the page. It just has nothing legitimate about it in my opinion.
animegamingnerd  +   956d ago
the only thing about this that makes me skeptical is that i heard this was leak before yesterday which was when pikimin 3's release date was announced and this paper states the release date which is august 4th
gamer42  +   956d ago
I saw this around 4chan I kinda thought it was bs, especially the August release of pikmin, So when nintendo announced it, I couldn't believe it. Maybe it was a lucky guess? who knows, but if it's true, OMG!!! SKY ROCKET SALES!!!!
admiralvic  +   956d ago
Possible, though the release dates don't make a lot of sense. Currently we have next to zero information on Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart Wii U, Super Smash Bros Wii U, yet Nintendo plans to not only release them this year, but pretty much blow every release on this quarter? It just doesn't make sense from any standpoint... especially with how the Wii U sales are. Sure it might be overkill for Xmas, but it will lead to another year of "this is all we have to play" / "no reason to turn it on".

Oh yeah, because a list that's leaving out several already confirmed titles that are coming this year sure is accurate...
JustinWeinblatt  +   956d ago
Apparently, Wii Party U and Project X Zone have been silently cancelled. :(

Or, you know... this is fake.

OMG! a SUPER SECRET document that leaked over 4Chan... really, "SUPER SECRET"?

oh well, at least some of it has already been confirmed.
Studio-YaMi  +   956d ago
Submitted by a Nintendo fanboy (jcnba28) .. oh yea this MUST be legit !

Would be great if it is though.
MasterCornholio  +   956d ago
I have a super secret document that confirms that confirms the release date of the PS4 in October, the price which will be 350$ and it will launch with over 30 games which launch titles like GTAV and Battlefield 4.


Honestly I don't believe that anyone would name a list like that super secret.

Damn, if nintendo drops mario kart u in time for christmas and it's good... that's it... they've won the first leg of the next gen.
RTheRebel  +   956d ago
And if Super Smash Bros releases this fall (I doubt it)
they will sell alot lol
Gaming4Ever  +   956d ago
Wii U Daily lol. That makes this seem even more legit after their complete fabrication of Zelda Wii U.
superterabyte  +   956d ago
I doubt the validity of this document but if this is true its really a case of bittersweet for Nintendo fans because on one hand they have some games coming to their console but on the other these games where expected I mean Wii fit U? Mario kart , Mario golf, bayonetta sequel? Not only were these games on Wii but they were on almost every single Nintendo console.

I'm just saying being a Nintendo fan must be painfully boring. What's coming out this year? Mario! Next year? Mario!

TBF bayonetta being a Nintendo exclusive showed a signal of intent which showed promise but since nothing has surmounted.
