Bad news for our American friends and import fans - two highly anticipated Nintendo DS titles have been delayed over in the States.

New Super Mario Bros. will now be arriving a week late, on May 15th. Big Brain Academy has also been delayed from late May to June 5th.

But have no fear, Europeans - a Nintendo spokesperson told us that the release dates "have been moved in the US only". Not that they've announced official dates for the games over here, mind, but at least that means we should still be on track to get New Super Mario Bros. and Big Brain Academy early this summer.
