The lights are on
When we saw Samus' latest adventure in Metroid: Other M a couple months ago, we were excited about the June 27 release date, but it also raised some potential concerns about the game for us. It's unclear if those issues brought on today's news from Nintendo, but both Metroid and Sin & Punishment: Star Successor will be delayed slightly from their initially planned release dates.
Sin & Punishment has been pushed back from it's June 1 release to Metroid's previous date of June 27. Meanwhile, Metroid Other M will now launch on August 31, closing out our summer instead of helping us get through it.
In addition to the delays, Nintendo also announced release dates for a bunch of upcoming DSiWare games (and one WiiWare game):
DSiWarePhotodojo (May 10)Earthworm Jim (May 10)Looksley's Line Up (May 17)Frogger Returns (May 17)Metal Torrent (May 24)X-Scape (May 31)Hero of Sparta (May 31)Flametail (June 7)A Kappa's Trail (June 14)
WiiWareBit.Trip Runner (May 17)
Still can't wait for Other M. Galaxy 2 will just have to tide us over until then.
Hopefully this is good news for Metroid; I want that game to be good, but I think they needed to do more polish
Hero of Sparta I think started as an iPhone game - I think my friend has it. He seems to like it, so it's cool that a good iPhone game is getting a release on the DS.
From all the impressions I've read regarding Other M so far, no one seems too terribly impressed. Hopefully any potential issues will be ironed out.
Oh no! :(
I'm with Ben though - I want this game to be good. I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
as long as they polish to game to perfection i don't care how long it's delayed. i really hope it's worth it.
I had a feeling this might happen *sigh*. I hate delays :(
Poose. I don't want iWare, I want Samus!
Nah, if it will make the game better then I can wait. I'm feel confident that this one will be worth that wait.
son of a...
S'ok. Monster Hunter Tri is already holding me up from finishing Metroid Prime Trilogy. I'm also way behind on my Wii Fit goal...
I got plenty of stuff to keep me busy while I wait for August.
Well, maybe that'll help FPS mode in Other M be improved to some degree...if your concerns about the constraints of that mode were justified to begin with, anyway...
Not cool I was about preorder metroid other M in a few days
Polish first always. As long as it's well made through and through I'm satisfied
SON OF A (BLEEP)!!!
Are You F*****g kidding me?,.......*sigh* I guess, if it means that it would make the game even better than its worth waiting. Super Mario Galaxy 2 will due (can't wait for may 23.) but I am NOT buying anything from DSIWARE and WIIWARE, until Nintendo brings Donkey Kong 64, (Already got other games from WiiWare i downloaded other games I once owned.) SO YYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH.
As long as its a great game when it ships, I can wait.
I wasn't going to get any of those games anyway.
