Mario Party 9 to be Released in March 2012?

While rumors and speculation have been running abound since the announcement of Mario Party 9 at E3 2011, a particular source is claiming the game will be out in March 2012. The source comes from a NeoGaf post where a member posted a release listing from GameStop. The list reveals quite a bit, including Xenoblade Chronicles getting a North American release date, but what caught our attention was the release date of the upcoming Mario Party 9. According to GameStop, Mario Party 9 will be released on Friday, March 2, 2012 in North America.

It’s also interesting to note that Forum member Dugger shared the same information over two weeks ago. This rumor has two different sources backing up this claim, so this could be the real deal. However, this could be just another one of GameStop’s placeholder dates.

Do you think Donkey Kong will be in Mario Party 9 or he was removed by Nd Cube?
