RUMOR: Mario, Zelda and Metroid in one year only

December 20, 2006

Though we have previously reported Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass’ [url=]one year delay[/url], rumor has it that Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Wii have now been pushed back to Q4, 2007. The reasons for the delays are not known.

Could this be a similar trend as with the Gamecube? An excellent game or two is released annually, and between that, only boring and generic things will come out on the console? Super Smash Bros. Brawl is supposedly coming out soon, but what’s after that? We shall have to wait and see…

[i]Editor’s Note: This is currently unconfirmed. I will check with Nintendo today, but expect the blanket answer of “No comment” for now.[/i]
