Diamond Trust completed QA testing and was locked down into its master revision back on October 3, 2011. Yeah, I'm looking at the calendar too---it's been a really long time.
So, what's been happening for the past seven months? Short answer: the Nintendo Approval Process.
The long answer is a bit more complicated, and it's kindof a funny story, but it's also kindof a non-disclosure-agreement-shrouded story. Suffice it to say that "negotiations" were involved.
The good news is that Diamond Trust came out the other end of that dark tunnel mostly unscathed, unless you take a look at the new, official title of the game, which was necessary to make the whole thing go through: "Jason Rohrer with Music by Tom Bailey: Diamond Trust of London"
Finally, the game also passed through Nintendo's Lot Check testing process without any hitches. And that means it's all ready to be manufactured.
There will be a big announcement about the manufacturing plans soon (hint: retratskcik).
