Nintendo today delayed Metroid: Other M on Wii from its original June release to Aug 31. I would say bummer, but I’ll still be playing Mario Galaxy 2 and whatnot. Carry on.

    I still say bummer, but yes, Mario Galaxy 2 will fill the larger gap nicely.

    Nice. Are they taking out all the cutscenes?

    The sign of a good Nintendo game! Wouldn’t be Nintendo if their hardcore games didn’t have delays lol

  4. Verius says:

    definitely a bummer. there goes my plan to beat it during my summer break!

  5. I hope we’ll still see Zelda before the end of the year

    Wonder if being close to galaxy 2 was the reason for delay. August a popular month for metroid, both prime3 and trilogy came out that month. Maybe that month should be metroid month 😀

    Sin & Punishment was moved into Metroid’s original release slot, so it was delayed too.

    I’m relieved. This gives me the time I need to pace my gaming and not feel so guilty I’m ignoring something I already have. I’m working on Red Steel 2, have Sky Crawlers still in celaphane, and Another Code:R has been giving me angry looks.

    3 games I wanted were all bunched together, so I don’t mind, nor does my wallet.
    Also, I hope this time is spent adding nun-chuck support, wii-mote only is novel, yes, but I’d appreciate the option.

    ewwwww i would much rather take other m over sin and punishment…..

  11. Legend says:

    Ah well. Good for me because I may need some time to enjoy SMG2.
    I don’t want to rush through it

    I don’t know Jack, did they take out all the cut scenes in Super Metroid’s VC release?
