Mario & Sonic… or Not

Two days ago, we let you know that the upcoming game Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games had been given a release date of November 8th, according to a system notification in North America.

However, apparently this was an error! Nintendo notified GoNintendo of the error in an email:

“The Nov. 8 launch date for Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games that was recently listed in a Wii U notification was an error. A confirmed launch date will be announced in the future. We apologize for any confusion.”

Well, that’s bizarre, considering the notification came on the Wii U, through the eShop. That said, the Games are set to begin on February 7th, so the release date for the game can’t be too far in the future—the Mario Olympic titles are typically released just before the Games.
