(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Could Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 be released before its scheduled release date of May 30th?
Amazon sent fans in a frenzy trying to figure out if the game was in fact released a month and a half ahead of schedule due to a post on its page stating that the game will ship in “two to four weeks.”
One user posted to a forum page on Neogaf showing a screenshot of a chat with an Amazon support representative that did confirm that the game was released on March 10th, which would put the shipping date around the beginning of April.
A Nintendo spokesperson told IGN that “the launch date of Mario Kart 8 has not changed.”
Amazon has since then changed its page to say that the game will be released on May 30th with pre-orders now available.
