Reported from an after hours press event, have quoted the legendary Mario creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, saying that the next Mario installment, Super Mario Galaxy, will not be available at launch.

"[Galaxy] is progressing along quite well, but it's often said that when I get involved in a project I upend the tea table. I don't want to promise anything yet. But if it's not a launch title it will definitely be there within the first six months."

Gamers across the world be will disappointed with this news, however Zelda & Metroid will both feature at the Wii launch later this year. Shigeru Miyamoto is known to be a perfectionist, so we'd rather he gets something right than release it too early, at least we already have something to look forward to in 2007.
