Nintendo says spring 2014 date for Wii U Super Smash Bros was a "misquotation"
"The original article has since been rectified and we have no further announcements to make at this time," says Nintendo.
Nintendo has said one of its German executives was misquoted in an interview where he seemingly suggested Super Smash Bros. for Wii U would be released in spring 2014.
Nintendo Germany general manager Bernd Fakesch was quoted by German site Neckar-Chronik earlier this week. "We would like to clarify that the speculation about a Spring 2014 launch date for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U was the result of a misquotation in an interview," said a Nintendo representative to GameSpot.
"The original article has since been rectified and we have no further announcements to make at this time." The page has now been updated to specify a release date of next year as opposed to spring 2014.
Nintendo has yet to reveal any footage from Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U outside of a video demonstration from E3 2013. Nintendo is developing the game in partnership with Namco Bandai's SoulCalibur studio.
