Smash Bros, Mario on for 07

Zelda DS, too. Phew.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy and DS title The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass are all still on track for release this year.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told an audience in Seattle that the three games would arrive before 2008, GameSpot reports. The latter duo had been scheduled as such anyway, but it's always nice to get some additional confirmation.

Particularly, for Wii owners, as the news comes just days after Nintendo lined up Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for a 20th August US release.

Fils-Aime was speaking at a Nintendo Summit that also saw the company declare that it's broken to traditional cycle of games only appealing to shoppers during holiday periods. "Games that appeal to a wider audience can stay on the best seller list indefinitely," he explained. Or "boomed", we expect.

Earlier this year, Nintendo revealed that DS title Nintendogs is approaching 14 million sales, while the Brain Age series has racked up over 12 million sales. So that's probably what he was talking about.
