Skyward Sword And Super Mario 3D Land Dated For Australia

Nintendo has been promising more simultaneous releases for their big hitters here in Australia (possibly as a direct result of this debacle) and while the release dates for this years big guns Skyward Sword and Super Mario 3D Land aren't simultaneous, they are relatively close.

According to Vooks, who got the early tip, both Skyward Sword and Super Mario 3D Land are being released on November 25 here in Australia. Skyward Sword is being released in Europe a full week earlier, as is Super Mario 3D Land, which could present a smart retailer like GameTraders with another opportunity to grey import the game and mess with street dates.

It will be interesting to see how retail handles the whole situation this time round.

Super Mario 3D Land and Skyward Sword dated for Australia [Vooks]


    Gametraders would be fools not to use grey imports.

      On Super Mario 3D Land maybe, on Zelda they'll be struggling to get UK copies here fast enough and at Xmas. They're also in bundles so they're in bigger boxes.

      when their retail price is the same as, if nor more than the local price I can't see any benefit. Especially when the stock will arrive around the time it launches in Aus. It took them a week to release Zelda on the 3DS, didn't it?

    Just cut out the middleman and import yourself at half the price and a week early.

      It gets released a week early. It doesn't arrive a week early. If you purchase from Ausgameshop or Zavvi, you'll be lucky if it arrives early at all.

        They were pretty quick with getting OOT3D posted out, I got it in less than a week.

        Still I'd prefer to wait a bit longer and save money.

          OoT came out in June no? Try that in November.

    Shame that my Wii's laser/ disc drive broke a few days ago. Now I can't play Skyward Sword! Damn you Call of Duty: Black Ops! At least I still can get my dose of Mario goodness on my 3DS :D

      There are a few hard-drive hacks you can do for your wii. Some of them don't even require a modchip

      new wii costs $150 at the moment, just get another black!

      Same happened to me. Nintendo fixed it for me, but I had to pay a little. I can't remember the exact price, but I did think it was fair.

    Hell f**kin yeah!!!!
    Cant wait for Skyward Sword!! Got the gold remote bundle pre-ordered, now I have a date!! So happy!!!

    *checks current date*
    Why is it still September :(
    Shouldn't it be mid October at least by now. So long to wait.

    Never owned a Zelda game and I only dabbled in a bit of Ocarina of Time at friends' houses but I'm tempted to get this. Is it possible to get the edition with the gold wiimote? Just had a look on ozgameshop and such and couldn't find it.

    Skyward Sword is the game I've been waiting for, it's great to finally have a release date. Now all I have to do is wait to see which retailer will be getting my business on the release day.

    My 20th birthday is two days later...

    This will be a fun birthday.

    Excellent, finish uni Nov 11.
    Already have it pre-ordered, gold edition of course, this and Assassins Creed Revelations, animus edition of course.
