[RUMOR] Nintendo 3DS getting November 20th release in Japan

Nintendo has already promised to unveil a release date for its Nintendo 3DS handheld at a September 29th press conference, but it may have been beaten to the punch.

A Twitter user named “nocchisan” who claims to be a former employee for Japanese peripheral maker Keys Factory has revealed that he helped design a bunch of 3DS accessories, and that these would be launched on November 20th in Japan, directly alongside the 3D-ready console.

To add some spice to the mix, the tweet has now been taken down, as well as nocchisan’s whole Twitter account. All of which could mean something or nothing, but if Nintendo’s lawyers did indeed get the tweet removed, they were a tad slow in doing so.
