Okay, I go to 411mania.com a lot just to look at news and stuff, wrestling, video games and movies. They have a article up and towards the bottom they talk about Super Mario Kart and Pilotwings being OFLC rated. They also say they expect them to be released in America by Mid-June... I just had to laugh at this thought and post a comment telling them they probably don't know what they are talking about,

http://www.411mania.com/games/columns/103803 there is the link... sorry if posting a link to another site is wrong :S

The word "Gem" is overused.

We did a news story on this a few days ago. They have been OFLC rated, but I've seen nothing to suggest a mid-June release yet.

Yeah I read the article nintendolife had about it and knew it was OFLC. I just don't understand why they would think it was coming to America so soon. I'm not getting my hopes up or anything, seeing as how we don't have Majoras Mask yet lol

That article said early to mid June. That's pretty specific. I wonder what their source is?

Well I looked at the article again to see if there was a source given. Right below the title of the paragraph it is in it says "Credit Nintendo LIfe". LOL. So I guess they are just guessing on the release date and really have no idea what they are talking about haha

That's what I keep predicting; being if Super Mario Kart ever gets ERSB rated & released by Q3 or Q4 for 2009! ;)

That site is questionable with some stuff a first place in terms of creditable and is known to have some pretty bad articles in some sections of their site. The writers of 411mania thought Megaman 9 shouldn't have been made a first place.

They acted like the game sucks at the time the game was announced.

They became a tabloid site for the most part. They are not the same site as they were 5 or 6 years.

Unless Nintendo ups the weekly releases to two or more, there really is no way this will happen. With Sim Earth up on the TG-16 page for june and Secret Command, Fantasy Zone II and now Space Harriar hovering above our heads, as well as bundles of C64 games, June seems pretty much decided already in North America. With Europe in the 292 games range, I'd put money down that Super Mario Kart will be there #300, that is of course unless Hanibai is going to breeze through that number quietly, which could also happen. To sum up, June should be interesting for Europe and pretty boring for North America.

Me too. It's bad enough that we have to resort to playing games on emulator (Which is illegal). I'm force to play Chrono Trigger and Earthbound on it and I might caved in to Mega Man X and Mega Man VII soon, and that's only in the Top 10 list.

Chrono Trigger is out on DS, and it's available on one of the Final Fantasy Chronicles on Playstation which goes for very little on Ebay. There are legal avenues to obtain the game if you want it; no one's forcing you to emulate just because it isn't on the system of your choice.

Earthbound is a bit different, though if you just want the cartridge, the usual asking price of $50 (last I checked) isn't horrible considering that's how much you'll pay for most new games, and this particular game is better than most. SNES's are cheap, too.

Of course, it's a lot to pay if you haven't played the games before, so emulating is a good way to try before you buy.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.
