3DS Peripherals Hitting Japan on November 20

Takahiro Amano, an employee of Japanese peripheral company KeysFactory, has tweeted that his company will be launching of 3DS accessories on November 20. While this is by no means an official announcement (from either Nintendo or even KeysFactory for that matter), if this information turns out to be accurate, common sense would suggest that 3DS would also launch sometime around that date. Unfortunately no official statements have been made by any of the concerned parties.

What is known, is that Nintendo plans to reveal the Japanese launch date on September 29.
