    I was recently shocked on two fronts when I learned that Nintendo is remaking Mario & Luigi Super Star Saga in the new 3DS engine. On top of that, it getting released on my birthday this fall, October 6th. To my knowledge, I have never had a birthday coincide with a release date of a game I care about. So what about you guys? Have you ever had a noteworthy game released on your birthday?

    I've seen a fair few games released on my birthday, though I can't find lists by just googling "Games released on Sept. 22nd" :lol:

    Project Cars 2 is releasing on my birthday this year, which is nice. I might pick it up, since I got a nice racing wheel for Project Cars 1.

    None that interested me. The closest thing I can recall is UT2004, which was 8 days later (on 16th of March).

    I could not find a list of games that came out on my birthday but what I did find was a list of games cancelled because of my birthday which is September the 11th one notable game was Propeller Arena on the Dreamcast which Sega had been hoping would turn around the fortunes of the Dreamcast.

    I don't personally know if any game had been released on my birthday - so I googled it....

    .. apparently a game was released last year, quite famous I believe (FYI I'm not a fan of this series) but couldn't find any for the actual YEAR I was born
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    My older sister however, who was born on the 19th (couple of years before me) - has a few games released on her birthday (but none in the year)

    • The game Hitman: Codename 47 is released on the PC.
    • The game Wii Sports is released.
    • The video game "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" is released on the PlayStation 3.
    • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is released for the Wii and the GameCube

    Normally my birthday hasn't been a prime game release time. That changed this year, the Switch was released on my birthday, March 3.
