1RetrowireThu 15th Aug 2013 Okay, let's work together here. The original Flipnote 3D release date in North America was supposed to be "Early August". It is now the 15th, which means early August has waved goodbye and gone. We know that the release of Flipnote 3D has been delayed in Europe due to "unexpected popularity" in Japan. But where's the info on the NA release? Was the NA release affected by the "unexpected popularity" in Japan as well? Why no word on that? We need to end the speculation. What were the sources that stated an Early August release in NA? And has there been any word on this delay in North America? We need facts! D: Retro Gaming Enthusiast. Nintendo Fan.
