Is Super Smash Bros. for Wii U coming to Europe on November 21? Apparently so! An official ad was spotted on French website Puissance Nintendo along with the aforementioned release date.

While Nintendo has yet to officially confirm launch plans for Smash Bros. Wii U, November 21 is certainly plausible. It wouldn’t be surprising if the game were to launch in North America on the same day as well.

Update: Sadly, Kotaku’s report was inaccurate. Nintendo has confirmed that the release date will not be announced, but we can look forward to more information about the game.


During today’s GameStop conference, a Nintendo representative confirmed that a release date for Smash Bros. Wii U will be announced this Friday. You can expect the news to drop sometime during the Treehouse stream. As a reminder, the event will kick off at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT.

Nintendo put up listings for the various Amiibo figures on its online store today. What’s particularly interesting is that each page includes a “November” release date.

As many of you know, Nintendo has said that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will release alongside Amiibo. Might this mean that the game will launch in November?

Masahiro Sakurai has posted the latest Super Smash Bros. for Wii U screenshot, showing Riki from Xenoblade as an Assist Trophy. You can find the image below.


According to Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai, Wii U owners have a longer wait over 3DS owners due to the intense debugging process required before the release of a game.

“Checking is done both domestically and overseas, so for a game like Smash Bros., several hundred people are employed.” Sakurai explained. “So, debugging alone becomes a huge project. So much so that one of the biggest reasons for the separate release dates for the 3DS and Wii U versions was so that we could shift the debugging periods.”

While we all await with bated breath for the release on Smash Bros. for Wii U, we do have the 3DS release coming up on September 13 (Japan), October 3 (North America and Europe), October 4 (Australia).
