Fils-Aime coy about Metroid date

What happened to 'early 2007'?

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime has dodged a question about when exactly Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is due out for Nintendo Wii, having previously said to expect it "early in 2007".

"The focus on Prime 3 is to make that the stellar game for a first-person experience on the platform," Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo America, told MTV News.

"What that means is we're going to make sure it's perfect when we launch it. I think this is one where your readers - the fans of Nintendo, the core gamer - need to recognize that when we release it, it will be perfect.

"And if that's a little later than folks would have liked, I'm hoping they're going to be happy," he said, adding that people seemed to be happy Nintendo took its time on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Not completely encouraging news for those of you hoping for new Wii titles sooner rather than later, then. Oh well, you can always play good stuff like Excite Truck in the meantime, and we'll be bringing you our thoughts on another Wii exclusive, Kororinpa, later this week.
