Metroid: Other M and Super Mario Galaxy 2 should be hitting stores between June and August.

Nintendo Australia announced that Metroid: Other M and Super Mario Galaxy 2 aren't holiday releases and are coming out between June and August, according to IGN.

This reveal isn't entirely unexpected, as Metroid: Other M was listed as "Summer 2010" on a Japanese release schedule that was released in January. On that same list, Super Mario Galaxy 2 was slated for a more ambiguous 2010 release.

There should be concrete information about Metroid: Other M and Super Mario Galaxy 2's North American release dates tomorrow at Nintendo's Q1 Media Summit in San Francisco.

I think the original rumor I heard about this was stating that the SMG2 release in June was a worldwide one, but it's all in dutch and it's hard to decipher.

I just posted this info in the Media Summit 2010 topic.:)

So... No New Play Control releases this year?

StogiFebruary 23, 2010

isn't that a good thing?

Hmmm... maybe New Play Control releases every other year?

Considering that New Play Control! Pikmin was a great game and we haven't gotten the second one yet, NO. Plus, there are other GCN games that deserve a NPC release.

Before this gets derailed, it was a joke. I was just stating that last year all we got were NPC releases and some notable releases here and there. This year, we have two big titles IF this is to be believed. Just pointing out how this year might be Nintendo's best if they decide to keep it up.

Okay, here's another joke:

Another reason to be thankful for Samus' big breasts.

I want new play control: Luigi's Mansion. I never got to play the first, and heard the controls were its weakest point.

ThomasOFebruary 24, 2010

Really? I thought the game's length and lack of a real end-game bonus were the weakest.

But Luigi's Mansion was one of my favorite GC games. Wii controls would be awesome.

I was hoping for some more New Play Control! games. I still want Pikmin 2 and Chibi-Robo...

Just popping in to say that I was right all along.

You were right about what?

Both games being released during the summer?

Nintendo committing to summer releases for these games must mean they're pretty damn sure Zelda's going to be ready for the holiday season.

StratosFebruary 24, 2010

Or WiiRelax will be enough to hold over the holiday season (plus one or two second tier titles hopefully).

StogiFebruary 24, 2010

ROFL at GP's new title.

I'd buy WiiRelax if it came with a masseuse.

People are just jealous of my avatar.

Looking forward to this summer with two fantastic games coming out!

Two fantastic games and the third Twilight movie! *pumps fist*

I still haven't seen the second because I promised my gf we'd see it together and she's always too busy or wants to watch something else instead... :P

DasmosFebruary 24, 2010

Title should read: Nintendo Australia Confirms Other M, Galaxy 2 for Winter.

Enough of this clear Northern Hemisphere bias.

Maybe she's waiting for you to find your balls and man the fuck up and refuse to watch that crock of shit.

Or even better, maybe she watched it already....with someone else.

I call bullshit on this.  I just can't imagine Nintendo releasing two games of this calibre so close together.  I'll wait for a solid release date announced from NOA.  Even if both games are ready who's to say that NOA won't intentionally stagger them.

And doesn't Australia get every games like two years late anyway?  THAT territory is going to get these games in the summer?

I actually don't want these to be released so close together as I figure I'll neglect one in favour of the other.  I remember when Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire came out like a week before Wind Waker.  Well I played Pokemon for exactly one week and then neglected it for Zelda.  I never got around to getting back to it.  In this case Metroid would get priority since it likely be the more original title.

BeautifulShyFebruary 24, 2010

Ian I think you should check the Media Summit blog. Oh keep in mind that the North American summit is for games released in the first half of the year.

Ian SaneFebruary 24, 2010

Well I was wrong.  They are actually releasing these games only a month apart.  That just seems so weird.

A month thankfully is far enough apart so as to give me time to get some serious play time with Mario first.

I'm much more open to the idea of Zelda actually being released this year now.  I honestly did not expect this two titles to be so close together and yet here we are.
