UPDATE: Looks like the message was sent in error. Check out this official statement from Nintendo below:
The Nov. 8 launch date for Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games that was recently listed in a Wii U notification was an error. A confirmed launch date will be announced in the future. We apologize for any confusion.
The last time we heard about Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games was last month when Nintendo revealed the title was scheduled to release this holiday. A SpotPass message sent out today revealed that the game is scheduled for a November 8 release date in North America.
It’s interesting to note that the game will release before some of Nintendo’s other big releases like Super Mario 3D World, Mario Party: Island Tour, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Are you planning on picking up Mario & Sonic?
