Sweet......except most the games I want are TBA or a generic 2010. At least S&P 2 is coming up soon.

They're more likely to stick to these schedules than the WiiWare one.

Meh, I already knew all of these, and the one I'm really pining for still hasn't been given a solid release date. It's not coming 'til 2011, is it? Maybe I should read the title or something. Then I wouldn't have to get so worked up.

S&P2, SMG2, and M:OM, all in 2010. It's gonna be a sweet year, that's for sure.

I want Cosmic Walker for NA release.

I'm also sad there is no date for Golden Sun DS. Guess we will be seeing that in 2011 then.

Relax guys, Kirby Wii has been on the release list for years now and it'll probably stay right there a while longer.

@pixelman Ditto. But just now realizing that Metroid: Other M, turns into MOM when abbreviated, I am decidely less excited for it.
And no Zelda on that list...surprise, surprise.

So Dynamic Slash is still listed and they're still saying it's coming in 2009 but there's still no information about it beyond the tiny trailer from a year ago...

Well, at least it's not canceled.

New Kirby Announcement: V8 Ninja cannot express his love for the fact that this is happening.

Span Smasher: What's that? anybody now about this game/series?

Monado: BotW: thought I heard about this one. It's an RPG, right?

Japan has been getting a new Kirby game since 2006. It's always the same one too, Hoshi no Kirby or "Kirby of the Stars," which is always supposed to come out "this year" in Japan.

said:

Nothing new. That Kibry game has been on that list since last year.

Endless Ocean 2 worldwide? This one I will check out. Cosmic Walker Japan-only? I cannot believe that would be true; I also don't believe it's coming this year since I don't see it on any pre-order lists...oh wait tentative release schedules kids, so let's hold off on the boycotts and breath-holding, okay?

how is a year a release date? all seems pretty vague except the one or two at the top.

I'm thinking Other M will be a summer release, and Galaxy 2 will be an X-mas release.

Dang Europe's list is short. Only 2 2009 titles too, and 4 generic 2010's.. oh well. New Super Mario Bros. Wii will keep me busy enough.

Stuffgamer1 said:

No new information whatsoever...STILL nothing about NPC Pikmin 2 in NA (no, I will NOT stop complaining about that!), or Trace Memory 2 for that matter. Dammit, NoA...you suck.

I am indeed starting to wonder if that Kirby will ever come out. We really need one, since we haven't had a real 3D Kirby since 2000.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii – On my Christmas list
Sin and Punishment 2 — WOW A wild shooting fest.
Metroid: Other M — On my list
Super Mario Galaxy 2 — Yes. On my list.
Span Smasher — Pictures look interesting.
Monado: Beginning of The World — hack and slash with HUGE swords

@valleyoftheunos. I agree. Not only is it a cut of paste of the one 3 months ago (not even changing the dates so nonsensically Kirby is still due in 2009*) but people get sensational and wacky when game x isn't on the list boo hoo.

End of the day these lists are to show the stockholders that Nintendo is releasing games in the future and nothing more.

*-Though it is likely this list is Financial Year 2009/2010 which means it has Until April...

I hope span smasher (which uses wiimotionplus) gets released over here.

Kirby Wii has been scheduled for release every year since the wiis release I think?! Don't hold your breath.

@Starwolf_UK: That's easy for YOU to say, Mr. I-can-go-buy-either-of-the-games-Stuffgamer1-mentioned-any-time-I-want-to-because-I'm-in-Europe. I have just as much right to complain that you guys are getting awesome games I want that we aren't as you used to have doing the same in reverse before NoE and NoA swapped qualtiy.

A new Kirby game? Well, that's the first I have ever heard of it. All the others I know about except for Span Smasher and Monado: Beginning of the World. Can anyone fill me in on those games? Really looking forward to Metroid, Super Mario Bros, and Sin and Punishment!

Token_Girl said:

@Stuffy

Yeah, I want Pikmin 2 as well. I played Pikmin for the first time when the NPC came out, and I love it. We'll probably see it when one of the bigger titles is delayed, or it's not a big enough shopping season to release a bigger title, but they need to release something to keep there from being too large a gap between games.

Europe:
Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Working title) — 2010
Metroid: Other M (Working title) — 2010
New Super Mario Bros. Wii — Nov. 20, 2009

Japan:
Metroid: Other M (Working title) — TBA
Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Working title) — TBA
New Super Mario Bros. Wii — Dec. 3, 2009

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE. Did Japan annoy Nintendo recently or something? "Wii sales are down YOU MUST BE PUNISHED."

So...the Kirby game that was rumoured, and sort-of announced more than two years ago finally gets a confirmation? Cool, but I'm really hoping to get my grubby little hands on Super Mario galaxy 2 ASAP! Must find something to do in the meantime...
