Gamestop expects November release for Assassin's Creed 2

During GameStop's Q1 earnings call (spoiler alert: a lot of earnings happened), CFO David W. Carlson outlined what he believed to be the big holiday lineup this year. Tekken 6 and BioShock 2 will lead off the insanity in October, followed in November by Modern Warfare 2, "a couple of Nintendo titles coming that have not been announced," and Assassin's Creed 2.

November is quite a bit sooner than the March 2010 deadline Ubisoft set for the game, but it fits perfectly with the "Holidays 2009" date found in the teaser. The only question is whether Carlson has inside info about the game's release plans, or if he's just speculating.

Wait, that isn't the only question at all. What are these secret Nintendo titles? This isn't the first reference a GameStop executive has made to some mysterious Nintendo stuff.
