Le sigh. There was a point, if we here at the Fanboy offices can remember correctly, that both Super Mario Galaxy
and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
were both possible launch titles. Now, according to some whispers over at CVG
, neither title will be released (along with the eternally delayed Zelda: Phantom Hourglass)
until the holiday season of 2007.
Patience is a good thing, and we're more than willing to wait until both of these quadruple-A titles are as shiny as can be. Still, unless Super Smash Bros: Brawl
can make it out either in summer or even earlier (something we highly doubt), Nintendo is going to be going quite some time without a big first-party title. Memories of the typical Gamecube release schedule are coming to mind, but alas ... at least we've got the Virtual Console to keep us busy...
