I’m a little confused why it’s coming out on September 11. Unless they’re working on translating or final debugging (which they actually might be, now that I think about it), the game looks complete to me.

The game is complete. Right now, you’re producing copies of the game, setting for release on September 11. They want to release this game as close as possible to the original Super Mario Bros. release in Japan, which was Friday, September 13, 1985. Friday, September 11, 2015 is the closest Friday to September 13. September 13, 2015 falls on a Sunday.

Fridays are usually when Nintendo lets retailers sell their games. Also, it unintentionally falls onto this year’s 9/11 tribute to the World Trade Centre attacks.

I know, but Nintendo has stated they are aware of the importance of the date in question, and that the date was chosen because of both keeping to SMB’s release date of 9/13/85, as well as the retailer deal I mentioned before.

Still hasn’t stopped people making jokes about it, though :{

On the point of 9/11 that ironically was the day that the leaked videos from Japanese Smash 3DS came out and confirmed the final roster (excluding dlc)

Well, Nintendo did release games on Sundays prior to 2013, when the date changed to Fridays. I heard that Star Fox 64 3D was planned to release on September 11th in the US, but delayed due to the event that happened 10 years prior, but it didn’t matter much for Mario Maker, for the purpose of the Original SMB’s release date.

Exactly. Though had they stuck to Sundays, then the release would be that much sweeter X-)

Have Review Copies been sent out already. We’re no where near 2 weeks before release, which has usually been when they’ve been sent out in the past, and we still haven’t had a Mario Maker Direct (Major Gaming Releases like Splatoon usually tend to have Dedicated Directs, Sorry to keep mentioning).

I’m saying they could have released it earlier, because everything looks complete, and Nintendo looks like they’ve explained everything. (Even GameXplain mentioned during their Livestream of the game that it was the finished product) However, as VIP already explained, Nintendo is attempting to release the game as close to the original release date for Super Mario Bros. as possible.

Well, GX didn’t get their Review Copy of Smash 4 until 2 weeks prior, this is much more than that. Even so, I’m still really feeling (great Shulk speech) the chance of a Mario Maker Direct before it releases for a few reasons: A) Not everything about the game was known/shown at E3 or the NWC this year, B) The game seems good enough to have one, as with Xeno X for a 2nd time, no other game seems good enough, and C) The 2nd half of each year tends to have the Same Number of Directs (and Same Number… Read more »

Conspiracy theory: What if Mario is also Link, Pikachu, Kirby, Marth, and all non-Mario characters? I mean, those mushrooms can turn him into pretty much anything…

So the game releases on quite a day for the US. The game came out released later than I thought, first announced over a year ago, having more content than I thought, and indeed it is Mario’s 30th Anniversary Adventure. Guess they wanted to release the game around the same time as the Original SMB was released in 1985, same timing Peach was confirmed for Smash 4, I decided to play it after all. What I would love to see is a Gallery with Mario Games and Trivia from the past 30 years. No Anniversary Game would be complete without… Read more »
