Super Smash Bros. Brawl Delayed Until March 9

By Chris Faylor, Jan 14, 2008 11:08pm PST Nintendo has once again delayed Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii), this time pushing the North American release of the game back until Sunday, March 9.

The company had previously specified a February 10 release (also a Sunday) for the highly-anticipated mascot fighter, itself a delay from the initial December 3 date, which fell on a Monday.

"I deeply apologize to the people who have looked forward to playing the game for so long and ask that you hold on just a little longer," director Masahiro Sakurai pleaded on the game's official site. "Thank you for your patience."

The game has also been postponed in Japan, but only for a week; it will now arrive on January 31 instead of January 24. European regions, meanwhile, are still without a specific release date, though it is possible the title may arrive there as soon as April.
