Every year in mid-August, a Bon Fest in Japan honors the dead and occurs in mid-August. Because of this, there will be no Nintendo updates in Japan for August 11-12, 2009.

Yeah, it was. They get enough games as it is generally so one week without shouldn't hurt them.

So, America is still getting an update, right?

BTW @Terranigma: Like the Jet Force Gemini avatar. His name is Juno, right? Haven't played that game in a while.

Let's hope this doesn't affect Americans and European updates too. Japanese who don't care about this holiday will be ****** about no updates.

Unlikely given the flood last week! Next week will no doubt cause the usual complaining though. 7 DSiWare titles (though three are Game & Watch) and 4 VC titles (three of them being VCA).
