One of the positives to come of social media in the recent past has been the leaks and today a tweet from a Japanese employee of third party peripheral manufacturer Keys Factory continues the trend.
According to a tweet from "Nocchisan", Keys Factory will be selling 11 peripherals for the Nintendo 3DS at the launch of the device on November 20th. The Nintendo ninja's came down quite quickly on this one and not only did the tweet disappear but so did Nocchisan's twitter account.
It's not a far-fetched rumor with Nintendo announcing details on September 29th and a 2010 launch for the device expected for the Japanese market, there is certainly enough time between the announcement and rumored date for retailers to prepare. Only two weeks until we know for sure and hopefully all regions will get some idea of when they'll be able to get their hands on the new system.
Update: Australian Nintendo fan site Vooks have stumbled on some rather interesting information. Both "Nintendo 3DS" and "Nintendo 3DSWare" have been accepted for submission to the Australian Trademark database and while that isn't that interesting, the next part might make you smile. The "Acceptance Advertised" date, which is the date this information is allowed to be released was set to be the day after Nintendo announces launch details on September 29th. What's more, the "Acceptance Advertised" date for both the Wii and DSi were only 2 - 3 months before their respective releases which bodes well for a possible PAL release for the Nintendo 3DS this year.
