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.
