Yesterday, we reported that a Spring 2014 release window for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U may have been accidentally leak in a German interview. Nintendo, in a statement to IGN today, addressed the rumors and speculation that came following the possible release date reveal:
“There seems to be some buzz online today about the launch date of Super Smash Bros. We would like to clarify that the speculation about a Spring 2014 launch date for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U was the result of a misquotation in an interview. The original article has since been rectified and we have no further announcements to make at this time.”
IGN notes that the interview now reads ‘the next year’ as opposed to ‘next Spring.’ So, unfortunately, it looks like we don’t have anything other than a 2014 release to go on. Go back to playing Brawl, you guys.
