this Wednesdaytomorrow now according to a late Sega blog update. UPDATE: The same October 18th release date will hold true for XBOX Live users only in North America. According to the Sega blog, PSN users have to wait until next week, October 25th.
You’ll note the press release reiterates a release timetable of November for the 3DS version, quelling rumors of a delay to 2012 that broke Friday.
