The third quarter financial reports briefing has been posted online and it gives a hint as to what Nintendo has planned for the coming year. A majority of the report talks about sales figures and also has tons of different software and hardware charts, showcasing the Nintendo Wii, DS, and their competitors. Towards the end of the report there is a brief segment about upcoming software releases. In particular Metroid Other M has been revealed to have a Summer 2010 release date, Super Mario Galaxy 2 will launch later this year, and the Legend of Zelda will be shown off at this years E3.
Super Mario Galaxy 2, a Mario action title in 3D world, will be launched this year. And, we will show the new Zelda title for Wii at this year’s E3.
While Nintendo mentioned both Super Mario Galaxy 2 and the Legend of Zelda, they failed to affirm that Zelda would in fact be launching in 2010, while they did mention this about the next Super Mario title. It seems Nintendo is very confident that the new Metroid and Mario titles will ship this year, but the Legend of Zelda is still a hope for a 2010 release and not something that can be etched in stone.
