May 23rd? Whoa. Guess I'll be turning on my Wii sooner than I thought this year.

Can't wait. I hope they opened up the levels a bit more and got rid of the terrible purple coin challenges.

We know more about Zelda than we did about NSMBW at this point in time.

In February 2010 we know about Zelda:
-Link is going to be older than TP Link
-Motion plus for archery and swordfighting- no pointer controls
-still haven't decided the visual style

In February 2009 we knew about -

Yeah, it's not like anything was released last month.

At all.

Nothing.

This spring is going to be HUGE for the Wii. So many AAA games! I never expected Metroid and Galaxy 2 to be released within a month of eachother.

Yeah, but we knew about Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus. They came out a few months before the holiday if I recall, but we knew they'd be big sellers during the holiday season.

Today we know of nothing big at all post June that is for sure coming this year.

Edit - Come to think of it, isn't E3 going to be around June?

Zelda, Golden Sun, 5th Gen Pokemon games (not holiday US but still this year somewhere and known about) Last Story, Xenoblade. Pretty big. Otherwise you may be on to something.

Nintendo doesn't treat games like Zelda and WiiSports the same.

Wow, the first half of the year is pretty packed for Nintendo. I wonder if they'll have anything worthwhile in the second half.

Now Trace Memory 2 makes me a little weepy, but they're already bringing out a ton of content, and none of this includes the holiday season, so I'm pretty damn psyched about 2010 so far!

I was hugely skeptical of other M, but after today's news of it being mostly 2D I am beginning to fill with hope again.

Yeah. Weren't we expecting Metroid to be a holiday title though? As it stands we know of literally no Nintendo games slated for this holiday.

Well, either way I'm glad they're spreading their titles out throughout the year. Beats a huge no-game gap, then a bunch of games at once.

Edit: This time last year, I believe we knew of a few games coming out around that holiday. Or at least some games a month or two before the holiday. We knew of Wii Sports Resort, and Wii Fit Plus, for example, that we knew would be big during the holiday, even if they release a month or two before it.

As it is right now, we know of nothing big post June.

Wii sports resort was the end of summer.

Wii fit Plus = wii vitality sensor

it's being made by the team that made Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, and Zero Mission

so yeah
But also with Team Ninja peoples, or are they one in the same? Don't get me wrong the trailer looks great and hopefully it will be good but it seems spin-ff-ish to me.

Seriously? Crappy Spin Off? Where did you get that vibe?
Not crappy, but does look a like a spin-off. Or is this now the series is gonna be from now on?
 
OH NOEZ! I thought that Nintendo wasn't going to release Sin & Punishment 2 in North America despite them saying they wouldz! It'z a miraclez!!!!!!!

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Trailer

Doesn't load for me though :(

edit: Awesome

When you watch a trailer and can't stop smiling, you know they've done something right.

Also, these release dates just about assure Zelda being Nintendo's big holiday release.

Ugh, that Metroid control setup sounds terrible. Was it too much to ask for classic controller being the default option? First person should have stayed with Prime.

Damn you Nintendo. I have to take out a damn loan to buy more games at this point. :D

Can't wait to see what they have in store for Q3/4.

Excuse me guys, I'll need to go bust a nut and then update the Year of the Forever thread.

Please do so. I love looking at that thread and salivating!
