We do not know when Nintendo is releasing its 3D-glasses-free portable, the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo has said sometime this financial year. A seller of R4 cartridges has an exact date.
Retailer Magical Shanghai — a retailer that continues to ignore the court injunction against the R4 in Japan — is sporting a cardboard sign on its window that says the 3DS will be on sale on March 22. Nintendo's financial year ends in March 2011.
Nobody in Japan is taking this seriously, but rather, people seem somewhat amused that Magical Shanghai is so definite in its release date.
Earlier this summer, however, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime stated that the Nintendo 3DS will be released "next year".
Nintendo later said that the exec made a "mistake".
March 22, folks!
