Nintendo Explains European 'Smash Bros. Brawl' Delay


Posted May 19, 2008 - By Brian Leahy

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is still not out in Europe and it's starting to look bad for Nintendo. Why isn't it out yet?

Apparently, it's going to actually take 6 months for Nintendo to localize the game for European languages. You know, because Brawl had so much in-game dialogue.


"Every time you go through localization you then have to put it through a test, which involves making sure that you recorded the proper voice, and that the proper voice is being activated with the proper trigger, at the proper time… so it’s not just a case of swapping over some words, it requires some proper extra development processes. And so it takes time."

Destructoid points out that Metal Gear Solid 4 is getting a simultaneous worldwide release and that game is mostly dialogue and cutscenes.

Face it, Nintendo. You just suck at localization and it doesn't work as an excuse.
