Via the Nintendo Indie World presentation. So no delay.
You're right. This happens every year though; we're told a game is coming in 'spring' but they use the astronomical calendar loophole rather than just following the meteorological calendar like normal people. Annoys me every time.
Normal people use astronomical calendar. If your school/culture/country teach you the other way, it's not developer's fault.
Seems like one of those weird American anachronisms, like imperial measurement and mm/dd/yyyy
There wouldn't be any confusion if publishers would stop releasing stuff as late in a window as they possibly can while still getting to say it's coming in that time frame. If you say Spring but your game comes out after all the trees are already green you should have just said June.
No man, haven't you heard, the American way is always normal and everyone else is wrong.
I learned the seasons as a kid and they lined up nice and neatly with the months. Equinox are all fine and good but I'm still going to be anoyed every time.
I’m like pounding my head on a desk right now at some of these comments. This is what Nintendo has always used. Summer starts June 21. Now people are saying summer starts June 1st lol.
You have this mentality of summer = hot but it just means that days are getting shorter while staying longer than nights. This way it still makes sense in or near the tropics where it's probably mildly hot all year long but days length still changes a bit during the year.
