Iwata interviewed by Japanese newspaper


The Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun has apparently interviewed Satoru Iwata, according to German newssite Gamefront. The direct translation of their post reads:
Concerning the release date of the Revolution, Iwata said that he didn´t want to miss the end-of-year business, which promises a high turnover. Hence, the console should be released in the US by Thanksgiving (end of November 2006), to guarantee retail support. He did not mention a specific date. At E3, Iwata wants to present a near-final console.
Instead of ´release date´, they have actually written ´shipping date´. But I guess that´s a mistake on their part. Their German is not too accurate.

Also, it should be noted that this story cannot be verified on the newspaper´s website. Searching for ´任天堂´ (Nintendo Co. in Japanese) returns only one recent article on a new Kyoto poetry temple, which features special downloads for DS users. However, there is this scan of the article:


Maybe someone can read the article and post its contents more accurately.

Looking briefly at the article, the few bits that are legible suggest that its most likely credible. However, the scan is too blurry to make out most of the article itself. Considering how nothing really radical seems to have come out this news posting, I think it's safe to assume that it's real.

This german site can`t say, what`s up
with this. But they say, that it could
have to do with the floor-vision-patent.

Nintendo usually isn't written as 任天堂 in Japanese. It is usually written as simply "Nintendo" or ニンテンドー (the phoenetic).
