Europe got a few games earlier than the States...there was The Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap, and a few others since then.  Still would be an exception though.



I just find it odd that Mario Kart is slated to come out so soon after Super Smash Bros. Brawl (at least in North America).  SSBB is such a huge game, and Mario Kart would be pretty big too, that they ought to be spaced out a little more apart.



I guess it's a one-two punch to go up against whatever PS3 and Xbox 360 bundles are coming out this spring.  If not, expect delays...



(I'm listening to SSBB music right now, of the Mario Kart remixes.  o_0  Awesome timing.)



I've never been good at Mario Kart.  I don't know if I'll pick this up.  The one day I ever played online in Mario Kart DS was against Revned and someone else (was it osrevad?), and I sure got my butt kicked!  I'm not so much of a fan that I have to pick up every one...  I only have Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart DS - and I probably sold Super Mario Kart - though I did at least play each one.



So there's animals and bikes now?  I haven't been keeping up with the news...

You have to learn some of the tricks (power slide speed boosts, etc) before you have a hope in hell online. Oh, and hopefully they'll do something about snaking in the Wii version, and as far as I know there's no Wii cheat devices yet, which has somewhat ruined DS WFC gaming.



Anyway, I just preordered it so I'll have the pain and suffering of getting it delivered on release day - while I'm at work and can't play.

I haven't been keeping up with any of the Mario Kart news. I blame the fact that the director of the game didn't set up  site with daily weekday updates.



Also, 37 days until awesomeness comes back.

So Europe's getting it first now? Or is it just that they didn't announce our delay yet?

Good heavens. Is Nintendo going to change the release date every day until launch?

How would that even work?  You can only change it so many times.



Day before launch: It's coming out in two weeks!

Day of launch: Hey you guys, you should buy this game, it came out three days ago!

44 days (US) - April 27th

41 days (AU) - April 24th
