Yup, had the same thing happen all the time. I love that it also breaks the date on the main site since it thinks the empty date is the earliest one so the main page defaults to it. So many little things broken. Even the adding images via URL is still broken after years and years.
Apparently this same exact text discrepancy also exists for the review pages. See pics:
This is an oversight that has plagued the wiki ever since the big redesign when someone forgot to change the text on these templates to reflect the changes made on the main wiki pages of games. Should be a quick and easy fix like a typo, shouldn't it? All that needs to happen is someone needs to change "Original US Release" on the Review Template and "US Release Date" on the video player pages to "First Release Date" and that would be solved. All the actual "data" is correct.
I see this has been fixed for the video pages, that's great. But the review page has not been fixed.

Just have it say "First Release Date" like on the main wiki and video pages. Who do I ping about this? @jslack @rorie
