The Nintendo site, Pokemon site, as well as accredited fansites Serebii, Pokebeach, and Filb have not announced December 31 as the release date. Is it safe to say that Amazon does in fact have the date or are they just using a placeholder? I am not going to order from here, but I would like the know the date all the same.

NO It is not the acual release date it is a place holder, We will probably get the next march or april, just because all the pokemon games come out in the spring for the us.

If you see a release date as "December 31, whenever", it's almost always a placeholder.

Most likely sometime around October/November for us.
We may have an actual US release date announcement come E3 as well. June 5-7th

I'm betting the release date will be a good amount before December 31st, so they can get those holiday sales.

The website that I import from says Oct 2012 for the US version but I highly doubt that is the release date as well.

FireRed/LeafGreen dropped in the fall here, so it isn't always spring. Generally, you want to add about six months, plus or minus two, to the Japanese release date for Pokekmon games: Japanese games that dropped in the fall usually come out in spring here, and vice versa. Since the new game is coming out in June in Japan, we should expect to see it sometime between November and February, most likely December for a Christmas release.

For what it's worth, Bulbapedia currently says "Autumn 2012" for North American release. Not that that means anything.

Also, keep in mind that Nintendo often inflates far-off release dates and revises them to be sooner later. I had this trouble when Black/White dropped; I walked into the store a month before release to pre-order and was told it came out the following week!

Nintendo of America, Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of Australia/New Zealand all have said the games are going to be released in Fall/Autumn 2012 (or Spring 2012 for Australia/New Zealand because they are in the Southern Hemisphere so their seasons are reversed). If you do not believe me go to the Pokemon website, then video games and it will say Fall 2012.

It is coming out around somewhere between September-November 2012. GameStop has October currently if I remember correctly and they usually have the best date.

The release date, according to a new Trailer recently released, is October 7!
