@Mona-Reggie True, I suppose there are multiple names... but as one of the most common is saying the date, it strikes Americans when they hear it even in other context... which is kind of a strange and unique situation.

And yes, Friday the 13th would be a great day for SMM ghost house DLC.

@Aromaiden True. I don't think anyone anywhere, US or otherwise, should take issue with a date. It's just a date.

NoA knows it's a sensitive date though, as they've listed it as "11th of September," when typically in the US we say the month first. To name a horrible event after 1/365th of the year isn't fair to the date! They should have called it something else.

9/11 will likely always be touchy because it's remembered by the date. If a product advertisement said "RELEASING PEARL HARBOR DAY!" obviously that would be horrible. But saying "RELEASING 12/7!" is fine. But since 9/11 is also a real date... yeah, people will always freak out about it.

Also, I agree that cancelling the event is silly. Iwata would want the people to play games. "GIVE THOSE PEOPLE GAMES!!" (Arnold Schwarzenegger voice)
