Mario Golf World Tour Will Tee Off in 2014John Llewellyn Martin |
You'll have to keep on practicing your swings, because Mario Golf World Tour won't be coming out until 2014. We guess Nintendo wanted a mulligan.
According to Game Informer, Nintendo held an investor relations briefing today, during which they revealed that Mario Golf World Tour has been pushed back to 2014. The Camelot-developed sports title was originally slated for a release in Summer 2013, but was delayed in order to augment next year's release schedule.
Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, said, "Some worry that an intensive release pace this year might result in a poor first-party software lineup next year. However, our internal software development teams are now at a stage where we can expect software launches without too many intervals. We still have many unannounced game titles. Therefore, we expect to release a sufficient number of first-party titles for the platform next year as well.”
Mario Golf World Tour will join games such as Mario Party, Yoshi's New Island, and Super Smash Bros. in 2014 on the 3DS. Let us know what you think of the delay and whether or not you're looking forward to the title.
