Nintendo has confirmed that Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3 will be among dozen Wii titles to appear in Japan this year, GamesIndustry.biz reports.

The news popped up in some financial papers uncovered by IGN.

"I can confirm the information is correct - it was distributed in the 'Supplementary Information about Earnings Release' which was part of the overall information distributed at the recent year-end financial announcement," a spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz.

The full Wii line-up for Japan in 2007 looks like this:

  • Donkey Kong Taru Jet Race
  • Wii Health Pack
  • Disaster: Day of Crisis
  • Mario Party 8
  • Project H.A.M.M.E.R.
  • Wii Music
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • Battalion Wars II
  • Forever Blue
  • Mario Strikers: Charged
  • Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
  • Mario and Sonic at the Olympics

The financial papers listed Animal Crossing Wii and Hoshi no Kirby as still "to be announced".

So far, only one of the games on the list has been confirmed for a 2007 release in Europe - Mario Strikers: Charged, which is due out on 25th May.
