    I'm thinking more along the lines of :

    "Ok, Shigeru, the Americans will need at least a month's lead in order to train themselves. The europeans, two weeks only. Then, the japanese will break them into little pieces once they get this game.
    -Ok, let's release it like this."

    You guys are stupid, the japanese version was released before any other version. [​IMG]

    Or do you really think that a game like that would come to europe first? :/

    If you believe this then you have obviously never seen japanese drive, I figured they wanted to give Europe and America a chance to have some real fun before releasing the game in Japan and making the online world suffer from Mario's doing 20MPH in 45MPH zones

    *Edit
    Oh and my guess to why it was released in America first? Probally because Japan has more people with wifi ready homes and N wanted to make sure their network can handle the load so went with a smaller demographic

    Yeah, us Americans got Mario Kart: DS before europe and japan, but Japan got Animal Crossing before us, and Europe always gets their games last.

    Read somewhere that the interest in the WiFi aspect of the game did not run very high in Japan; may be one reason we got it first.
