''Super Mario Galaxy 2,'' ''Metroid: Other M'' Dated

Are you a hardcore Wii gamer thinking that Nintendo has forsaken you? Well, you might not be completely wrong, but you definitely should be completely ecstatic that the release dates for Mario and Metroid sequels were confirmed today at the Nintendo Media Summit.

Metroid: Other M – the unlikely collaboration between Nintendo and Team Ninja – will be released in North America on June 27.

Expect Super Mario Galaxy 2 on May 23. Check out the latest trailer below.

It'll be a glorious summer for Nintendo faithful.

    I'm sorry but the words "hardcore", "gamer" and "Wii" really don't belong in the same sentence.

    However cool Mario Galaxy is, it's still something I only pick up and play occasionally - nothing hardcore about being only half-way through after a year of ownership!

    Now, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars is a different kettle of fish ;-)

    You have the definition of hardcore messed up.

    I am so very surprised at the release of more Mario and Metroid games.

    Words cannot express my shock.

    No, I don't think so. I don't know of any Wii game that has either a) required sufficient levels of gaming prowess or dedication to be considered a "hardcore" title or b) has garnered an intensely loyal following to be considered having "hardcore" fans.

    I don't know of anybody who obsesses over Mario Galaxy to the same levels as Mario 64 or Super Mario World, same can be said for Zelda.

    Now if the phrasing was "hardcore Nintendo gamers" then yes I'd entirely concur, but the Wii, no matter how you split hairs or define "hardcore", is not, nor was it intended to be, a "hardcore" gaming platform.
