Talk about unfair, why are americans getting the game 2 weeks earlier?
There going to spoil the whole game, its like Nintendo is telling fans around the world to not go to the internet for 2 weeks.
People will stream it, people will post videos on how to get each character, gaming sites will post guides, they will spoil the game for everyone.
We should all be equal and get the game on the same day or at least one or two days later.
I'm sad with you nintendo T_T

After the awesome launch Pokemon XY had last year you'd think they'd do it with their other bigger franchises. But in the end i can't complain because i live in US.... soooo.... AMERICA! [email protected]#^& YEAH!

It's already out on the 3DS, so isn't all that already spoiled?

I think it has more to do with getting the game out before Black Friday than releasing the game later in other countries.

You Europeans got Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 earlier. I think it's our turn.

TwilightSparkle1161d ago

But didn't japan get the 3ds version three weeks earlier? Plus they have the new 3ds system were they use the c stick. We don't get anything till 2015. Even Europe got smash two weeks earlier.

My body is ready.

Awesome! Good timing, Nintendo. Should keep the Wii U going on Black Friday.

ForgottenProphecy1162d ago

Why don't they just globalize every release of every game? I mean I live in NA so it doesn't negatively effect me, but I want all gamers worldwide to get their game the same day.

Allsystemgamer1162d ago

It really is a pain. I don't understand it one bit.

randomass1711162d ago

Localization is not as easy as shipping discs to another nation especially when the console in question is region locked.

ForgottenProphecy1162d ago

But a global release worked for Pokemon. And why is the game coming out in NA weeks before Japan?

The 10th Rider1162d ago

Probably to hit Black Friday in 'Murica and avoid the mad rush of the Pokemon release in Japan.

randomass1711162d ago

Think about the kind of games being made and who is making it. With Pokemon all you really need to do is change all of the Japanese text to English and maybe change a few Pokemon noises. With Smash Bros. you need to not only do that for menus, trophies and other such things but you also need to rerecord dialogue with English actors and sometimes even change the game models. It could also be that Bandi-Namco and Sora operate differently as developers from the guys who make Pokemon.

ForgottenProphecy1162d ago

That doesn't explain why the game is coming to NA weeks before Japan.

eworthington01161d ago

Im guessing they are getting fairly close to translating the game to japanese.

RosweeSon1162d ago

It didn't have to be the same day but the same week shouldn't have been too hard they did it with mario kart way back on the original wii and more recently with pokemon x/y if a massive game with how much translation can do it worldwide smash bros should be really but hey ho good things come to those who wait and having just got the 3ds version and with bayonetta 2 due just before anyway I can certainly wait a week or 2, it'll be a day one for me but may not even play it until I get a few days off that I can really nail it good job it'll be christmas in a mere few weeks from launch ;) in the U.K. anyway.
