We have some details on the release of the Nintendo 3DS in Japan now, as an interesting Tweet by a Japanese Peripheral Developer was quickly removed after it was posted online – coincidence or not?
As stated over at DigThatBox, the employee used to work for Japanese company Keys Factory. He confirmed in his tweet that the company would be developing accessories for the Nintendo 3DS after launch, and that the launch date in Japan would be November 20th.
Why would the information be posted and removed so quickly? Did the user remove it himself, or did Nintendo hear of it and took action immediately? We can’t say for sure, but it does look like the pieces are slowly starting to form together nicely.
Further information on the website reveals that Nintendo has a press conference scheduled for September 29th. This will probably be used to slap a solid release date on the handheld, which will firmly put the rumors to bed.
Do you know any other details on the release of the 3DS? There is a recap of recent rumors in the link above.
