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.”
The Elder Scrolls Online, an MMO set in the Elder Scrolls Universe has been given a release date of April 4, 2014 on PC and Mac. The game will come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 a couple of months later, in June.
In addition to the release date reveals, Bethesda has released a new gameplay video for the game, titled W’ar in Cyrodiil’, where we see our three alliances rallying their forces right in the middle of the capital.
Konami has announced a release date of March 18, 2014 for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
The news comes via a new trailer that shows the Xbox One/Xbox 360 exclusive ‘Jamais Vu’ mission. Similar to the Deja Vu mission that’s only on PS3/PS4 that lets you play as Classic Snake, Jamais Vu puts you in the role of Raiden (Post-Cyborg) infiltrating a naval base full of body snatchers.
