Nintendo America scares Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon into 2013

by Daniel VuckovicAugust 13, 2012

Nintendo of America has published a whole batch of new release dates for the Nintendo DS, 3DS and Wii and while most of them are pretty good it’s sad news for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.

Nintendo America has pushed the game back until 2013, the first half of 2013. That’s a potential 6 month delay. We’re pessimists around here with release dates.

Games that did get dated were Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask for October 28th, Paper Mario: Sticker Star will see a release on November 11th as well as the western release of Style Savvy: Trendsetters being set for October 22nd.

In fact there’s almost a game a week from Nintendo in October and November for the Nintendo 3DS alone. Couple this with what’s left of the DS and Wii release schedule and the impending Wii U release you can see something had to give.

It’s not revealed if this delay will impact the European or Australia release of the game. We hope not, but you never know.
