Metroid Prime 3 to be Released After June; Nintendo wanted to sign LittleBigPlanet

Super Paper Mario better be good, as Newsweek spoke with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, and he's confirmed Metroid Prime 3: Corruption will not be released by June of this year. Originally promised as an early 2007 release, the first-person-shooter will be arriving sometime in the summer, at the earliest.

"Where is Metroid? Metroid is not going to ship by June. We've announced all of our games through the end of June. And the fact with Metroid is we want to make sure that that game is perfect," said Fils-Aime. "Unfortunately, Metroid Prime 2 didn't live up to our expectations, it didn't live up to Retro's expectations ... From a sales standpoint. I think we were all happy with the product itself. Certainly it won quite a bit of critical acclaim, but the sell-through wasn't what we wanted it to be." (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Wii)

I think the orig. MP3C was to debut in Jan 07!
I hope they added co-op online play!

I know the previews of it showed the graphics were on par with Halo 2.
I have a feeling those graphics just got tweaked up abit more.

I too am looking forward to the wii producing games which it couldn't on the GC.
