I got in touch with our rep to see just what the deal was with Super Mario Galaxy’s release date. We have seen various sources that claimed dates anywhere from Nov. 12th to the 14th. The official word is that Galaxy indeed launches on the 12th. As with most titles, you probably won’t see it on store shelves until the 13th. The reason for the release date spread is due to Nintendo giving retailers a couple days to get the game in-stock and out for purchase.
