Update - Nintendo has now responded to the negative feedback from consumers following Reggie Fils-Aime's comments about the Super Smash Bros. Brawl European release. Talking to 1UP, the official response was "A release date for Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Europe has not been announced."
Apparently Fils-Aime purely meant that Europe will receive the game after the US market, rather than in the Autumn period.
Original Story - Smash fans in Europe may just have to wait a little longer if recent reports are to be believed.
According to the 1up podcast Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime, was questioned on why Mario Kart and Wii Fit were heading to Europe before the US. Reggie supposedly replied "because they won't get Brawl until Fall (Autumn)".
That said, releases dates have always been known to change, especially with Nintendo's bigger IPs. Hopefully Europe will at enter the battle for a summer season of Smash. Be sure to stick around for confirmation on a European release for Smash Bros. Brawl.
