    The sad part, this is the rest of Nintendo’s line-up for the year…


    • Nintendo said Golden Sun was slated for “Holiday 2010” in North America and Europe. December is closer to the holidays so…

      • dork

        Very true, but I am skeptical as to why they didn’t mention it coming “this holiday season” in the press release like they did with Epic Mickey.

        Just makes me concerned :(

      • Joanna

        December? Well, I hope Nintendo gives me a nice birthday gift and releases close to my birthday since I am one of the biggest Golden Sun fans!! :D

  • urbanscholar

    Uh-oh. Pink powder puff’s triumphant return, power-sliding gun action and or stylish warring states mash ups. Ugh choices.

  • malek86

    Nothing catches my eye. I might have to give a try to DKC, but I’m not really into platformers nowadays.

    For September, I’m basically just waiting for Cladun and Halo Reach.

    • urbanscholar

      I certainly believe, Kirby & DKC will cure those platforming blues.

      My big concern is how these titles play, DK should be fine but Kirby might not(Zelda is out, way too many motion controls) Also Metroid has me worried, it comes out in a few weeks and not one ad or commercial so far, not to mention the controls could make or break that game for me. I just hope Team Ninja can pull this one off. Thats the one thing (OK one of the things) that still bugs me about the Wii after all these years, that I have to actually worry about how the cotrols work. I miss Gamecube…..

  • Natat

    Professor Layton in less than a month? Holy crap!

  • No Disney’s Epic Mickey?

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

      All the games listed above are being published by Nintendo so maybe Epic Mickey isn’t on the list because Nintendo aren’t the publishers. Then again I would have love to have known the release date too……

  • Advent_Andaryu

    Can’t wait for Epic Yarn! I hope sales are good so that Nintendo sees how popular Kirby really is.

  • EvilAkito

    Both games look cool, but I honestly expect at least one of them to be delayed until next year. Hopefully Nintendo will prove me wrong.

  • Hours

    Last Window? Fire Emblem? Chibi-Robo? Golden Sun?

    Hello NoA? Is anyone there?

    • Joanna

      I’d like to add Another Code R as well. Come on NOA, it’s already got an English script!

      and my pipe dream….ASH…. :(
