The boys at PALGN have spotted a June 26 release date for Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl at online store TopShop.

You may remember TopShop also had info on the street date for the Dual Shock 3 controller. The date turned out to be correct. So this, friends, is a good sign. Now, if only Nintendo could confirm…

  • This is as good as confirmed as as the retail signage push at EB is in full swing here after a recent visit. Id be suprised if they do not have the date.

  • Topshop runs off the All Interactive Distribution database (as do a few others including dStore and DVD Crave), so I expect that this date is coming direct from them.

    AID is probably the largest middle man supplier in Australia, so I expect they are in the know.

  • @bazuden: Well, be sure to send an email to tipsATkotakuDOTcomDOTau next time and we’ll be able to give you credit. Letting us know two weeks later doesn’t help anyone!

  • I’m fairly sure that runs off the AID database too.

    Nintendo hasn’t submitted anything to yet (I wonder if they will continue to support it?), but if the big retailers are starting to push, that’s a good sign.

  • I’m fairly sure that runs off the AID database/warehouse as well, so I expect that the date appeared on their site at the same time as the others.

  • GAME are claiming “Availability: 19/06/2008” which is what I thought it was when I put it on preorder about a month ago.
