June SSB date "a mistake", says Nintendo

Official website gets it wrong.

Nintendo has dismissed suggestions a 1st June date has been set for the UK release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl - despite said suggestions having appeared on the company's own website.

As reported by CVG, the SSBB gamepage on Nintendo UK's site yesterday gave a date of "01/06/2008". It's since been amended and now simply reads "2008".

Eurogamer contacted Nintendo to find out if this represented an accidental revelation of TRUTH or it was all just a big mistake.

"June 1st is a Sunday," a spokesperson wisely pointed out. "So yes, most likely a mistake."

Ah well. Super Smash Bros. Brawl is out now in Japan and (spoilers, mind) lots of new details about the game have already emerged. There are also plenty of videos to check out on the gamepage.
