I say the end of October or early November would be ideal timing, as of now there is a wasteland of games releasing in that time frame.

The other time to release something is probably the week after Smash Ultimate, if Yokai makes it this year that would probably be when that launches though.
Don't disagree- but 2 months seems like too low of a timeframe for release announcement to release.

Japan's obsession with Splatoon is hilarious and baffling at the same time
Have you played the game recently? The reason why people get so into the universe is really evident even at first glance.

And by the way it's not only a Japan exclusive, Splatoon 2 has sold more than BotW in Spain for the past 5 months for example, and it's currently doing the same in Italy too. Globally speaking it sold as much as Odyssey in the last 3 month report. 760k Odyssey, 740k Splatoon 2.

Didn’t the first Builders game have a very fast announcement to release cycle?

It would be uncommon, but I think it has become a more popular move in recent years. Most games don’t need the whole hype buildup that they used to.
