    Default Claymates (SNES) Release Date

    There is conflicting information regarding the release date for Claymates for the Super Nintendo.

    Wikipedia has the North American release date given as April 26, 1993 (and November 20 of that year in Europe), but the Super NES Master List hosted on Nintendo's official website has this as March 1994. Nintendo Power first covered the game in its January 1994 issue, a month after it covered the previous Interplay Clay-related game, ClayFighter.

    I'm trusting Nintendo on this one.
    I do remember Claymates was one of those games seeming delayed forever (I think it was previewed as early as 1992?). It sounds like I'm one of the few people that really liked that game, so I can remember first renting it as soon as I saw it at Blockbuster and then getting the game a few months later, in 1994.

    Though TBH I'd trust almost any source over Wikipedia.

    I am unsure how Wiki came up with the April 26, 1993 date. But I do know it isn't correct. There was an ad for it in GamePro which said it was to be released in March 1994 which would be the correct date.

    BTW -- I guess Claymates wasn't as popular as many had expected it to be on account of the cutesy background music heard in at least the first two worlds (the backyards and the Pacific). However, had there been four more worlds this might truly have been a more competitive Super Mario World clone.

    An old Usenet post from 1/12/1994 says the source for upcoming releases was direct from NOA and they list February 1994 as the date.
