I'm not sure whether the smaller divisions, like Nintendo of Russia, will release later or not. But the largest 3 markets for Nintendo are all a March 20th launch.
Yeah, ever since Pokèmon X and Y in October 2013 Nintendo has almost always released their big games on the same day worldwide. This will be the first such main-series AC game, though (although City Folk released in North America, Europe, and Japan within a couple weeks of each other).
