Nintendo already told us that its fans should not be expecting any big releases for the rest of 2008 and that they have revealed everything for 2008. However, Nintendo hasn't said much about 2009, leaving hardcore gamers to hope for the future. Well, it looks like the future those fans have been hoping for may be even later than early 2009. In the October issue of Edge, a Nintendo statement explains that the company does not believe they have ignored the core fanbase. Moreover, Nintendo reiterated that its teams are working on hardcore games, although none will be ready for launch in early 2009.
