Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid this summer

According to Nintendo Australia.

Nintendo Australia has said that both Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M will be summer releases.

The platform holder has previously listed the new Metroid game, developed by Tecmo, in a summer slot, but Mario had always been down as 2010.

According to IGN (thanks VG247), Nintendo Australia's Greg Arthurton said neither was a holiday season release.

Instead Australian gamers - and presumably those of us elsewhere in the world as well - can expect to get our hands on them between June and August.

We've contacted Nintendo UK for clarification. The US version of the Nintendo Australia event where the news broke takes place today, while the European equivalent is tomorrow.
