IGN says that, according to Nintendo Australia, both Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid Other M will be released this summer between June and August. In addition to being happy about the news itself, we should also think further: If Mario and Metroid are released this summer, what will be left for the Holiday Season? A Zelda Wii release in 2010 seems more likely than ever.
In related news, Mario and Metroid might be featured today at Nintendo’s Media Summit. Several site like IGN and GoNintendo will be doing liveblogging if Nintendo allows. Expect this to start at 9 AM PST (5 PM GMT).
