“Following recent hints of a 2006 launch, technology and manufacturing partners have let it slip that Nintendo plans to launch the Revolution in June next year.
More surprising are plans to launch worldwide – within one month; “As of early October this year, we had agreed with all key partners that a global ship date of June 2006 was achievable” “
I knew Nintendo would launch the Revolution with a blast, but I never would have guessed that they might launch it worldwide at one time, if you think about it, that is indeed quite a task to do.
During his speech at E3 this year, Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, said that from day one it would be possible to play one or two launch titles over the internet, and that title would be Smash Brothers. Personally, this is something I really look forward to because Super Smash Bros. Melee is one of my favourite games for the GameCubes, and with the very innovative Revolution controller that Nintendo has come up with, I think that a Smash Bros. game is gonna be a blast to play! 😀
