Nintendo Leaks Mario Kart 8 and SSB Launch Dates

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U could arrive in the same Spring 2014 time frame. Speaking to Neckar-Chronik (via NeoGAF), Bernd Fakesch said, "At Christmas we now want to inspire with titles like Wii Party U, Wii Sports Club, Wii Fit U and all of course Super Mario 3D World, the classic Nintendo Family for the new console. For next spring two more big license games are also announced for our TV console with Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros."

No word yet on when Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will arrive, and which territories Fakesch's mention applies to. We've contacted Nintendo for more information.

Nintendo recently revealed the Skull Kid Trophy Assist and a Super Mario Galaxy stage for Super Smash Bros.

So apparently, both are Spring 2014 releases; I think Nintendo might release Mario Kart in March, Super Smash in late April.

This would greatly help the Wii U's commercial prospects.

I wonder when SSB 3DS will release?

Great. Now they have to drop the price at least $50 more and give us a Zelda game with the option of normal controls. No motion or tablet crap.

Good to hear.

Well...well...well.

If this is true, I guess I'll finally be purchasing a Wii U. Just like in 2008 when games were just pouring in for the Wii. This could be a very good year. And it's about damn time too.

Brawl got delayed twice in America so don't expect to see it for a while I saY.

Brawl got delayed because of its online mode, which Sakurai was at the time completely unfamiliar with. I think that shouldn't be an issue this time.

@Bigboi500: Chaz got suspended last time he linked his porn collection. We're probably safe.

Ugh, I never wanna hear about Wii again, how much I hated that system.. Wii U > Wii

Anyways, can't wait for both games. And hope A Hat in Time is also launched around that time. Time.

Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers coming out would have me feeling hard-pressed to buy a Wii-U finally.

Looks like they are rushing the hell out of Smash Bros

No adventure mode, smaller roster than Brawl, i wouldn't even be surprised if they cut final smashes

You said date. Spring is a season. Not a date.

Final Smashes are confirmed, and we have no idea how big the rosters are

You said date. Spring is a season. Not a date.

I was constrained by Gamespot's draconian title length limits, if I had had my way, I would have put 'release windows' in there

Nintendo is so slow with the releases, you'd think they learn how to develop games in HD since before 2010 but no they waited until the Wii U.
