Capcom speaks, and says that Apollo Justice is being released February 19th. So it's not the 12th after all. Sad, but it's only a week difference.

This doesn't, however, change the due date for the Where Are They Now? contest: entries will still be accepted through the 10th and winners announced on the 12th. All the better for me getting the winners their free copies of the game in time!

(Also, English names were revealed in the latest Nintendo Power for Daian and Mugitsura's noodle cart, and are in the News section)

The names are nice to know too's. I was wondering about that noodle cart. Tis goodish news all around. :redd:

And I was just thinking of asking "What are you going to do if the the game gets delayed at the last minute? :o" in the contest thread... Though this is not a delay~
Well, a week difference doesn't hurt really.

Better start preordering it...

Not the worst fate. After all, it's only a week...I needed more time to let Capcom figure out which gaming store chain was carrying the preorder gift, anyways.

REMINDER: It may have been pushed back to the 19th, but it still hits stores on the 20th!!! Do NOT go to your video game store expecting to see it on the shelves on the 19th.

Now that that's out of the way, I never really believed the 12th date. Who are you going to believe: a third party video game site or the store that will actually stock the game? :/

Only a week, yeah, but kinda a disappointment. I've been hoping to get it during the holidays where the 12th is, but it looks like I'll get it on a school day instead. Ah well.

Gah. I was really hoping to have this to tide me over on the plane ride. =P Guess I'll just replay the first three instead.

(Or maybe I'll look to pick it up in Nintendo's store. >.> Now I'm torn between how much I want a preorder gift or not...)

EDIT: =P My spell check fails.

Hmm...
Lots and lots of site list it as the 12th...
In fact
One site, whose post was after this post, said it was pushed back again...
http://blastmagazine.com/2008/01/apollo ... pushed-up/
Also, Wikipedia says the 12th... Huh.
I'm hoping it's the 12th myself, because I'm going on holiday on the 18th (the worst timing possible! LOL)... which means to me it'll be about 3 weeks difference :(
Oh well, if it has to be the 19th, I suppose I'll just have to accept it :udgy:

QFT


This needs to be post in very, very, very big text all over the release date threads and the site. Hopefully those who delt with this during T&T will remember, but not everyone pre-ordered it and harassed Gamestop the morning of the release xD


This is important, and I suppose anyone that TRIES to go and buy it on the 19th will be a source of lulz. For those of you who didn't know the street date is the day AFTER the release date (meaning the stores wont sell it till the day AFTER the release date)... well now you know. Don't learn the hard way like most of us did :larry:

Mmm, not quite, but close enough. A street date is a date set after the stores receive the item and the product cannot be sold until that exact day. Apollo isn't street dated, so he can be sold as soon as he arrives in the stores. The 19th is the ship date, meaning the day the game leaves the warehouses. It takes a day for the parcel services to deliver the boxes of goodness to the stores, so they won't appear on the shelves until the 20th at the earliest. If by some chance you walk into your Gamestop/video game store on the 20th and they don't have it out, please kindly ask them to check their shipment boxes in the back for it.

Again:

I really hope it's leaked ;)
Then I shall die happy :D
:will:

EDIT: Where is the official source that says it's the 19th :S
All I can find is the Capcom-Unity blog, and that was written by some random person...
Can someone please link me? Thanks :phoenix:

see I still think the whole thing about it just being the ship date is just silly for a couple reasons.

1. It silly to advertize the date that your gonna ship it out to the retailers, and not the date that you're able to shell out 30 bucks for the game. I actually work at a bookstore, and sometimes we'll advertize a book, and then it will get to us late from the publisher because the mail is slow or something. It always causes chaos, and people just get annoyed on both ends when customers try to get the book, and we have to tell them that it's not in yet after we just advertized the book as a special we were doing. To do that on purpose is just bad marketing, unless your doing a bait and switch which is still being a jerk.

2. This happened with T&T and it happened 2 days ago with the new Advance Wars game. I'll go out to gamestop or some place similar to go get the game the day it comes out, and they'll claim it's not released yet, and say it's just the ship date and all that garbage, when not more then 15 minutes before, I was talking to somebody online that was in the middle of playing the game. For the more recent one, one of them was in Oregon, and one was in Florida. But the real nail in the coffin was, not only did the walmart NEXT DOOR, not only have it in that day, but they had sold out of every copy they had.

It just aggrivates me to no end when stores try to pull off this kind of crap.

I swear it's the 12th. Wikipedia is maintaining it's the twelth
as the article that says it's the 19th IS NOT OFFICIAL.
It's the CAPCOM-UNITY BLOG (even though it's LINKED by capcom)

And to prove it's not Capcom themselves, as a Wiki member pointed out, they wouldn't say "Capcom have announced" They wouldn't speak in third person.

The Capcom board, Gamestop, and Gamespot are all saying 19th. 19th was the first date that was given in the first place. It's nice to hold on to the dream... but even the Capcom store has it as the 19th.

It's the 19th.

WIKIPEDIA IS NOT ACCURATE!!

Its helpful, but its not 100% accurate. For release dates, always check with the official sources. If Capcom says its the 19th, then thats when it is.

Its just one week, not that big of a deal anyway.

I must pre-order ~_~ I was gonna do that tonight but forgot XP

I don't think this is a case of the date being changed. The release date was announced first as the 19th, and then some Nintendo source came up a few days later saying the 12th. I think that source was just wrong all along, or some kind of typo that got spread around thanks to this being...you know, the internet.

But really, it's probably always been the 19th.

How come on Amazon, it says Feb. 12? I pre ordered it a month ago, and when I checked on my packages, instead of the delivery estimate date being the 21st, (2 day shipping) it was the 14th. Gamespot said in one of their reviews it would be released on the 12th, but the release date they put up in the summary is the 19th.

Now my head hurts. Is the 19th the true release date? Or did Amazon and Gamespot simply get mixed up with the dates. But no one tell Amazon. XP
