Even though it looked like Nintendo of Australia’s conference was going to be a dud, we did hear the exciting news that Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M will be released this summer. Also, it looks like Other M will be at Nintendo of America’s media summit. Right now, thanks to the latest IGN Voice Chat podcast, we know that WarioWare: D.I.Y., Pokemon HeartGold/Soul Silver, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Rage of the Gladiator, America’s Test Kitchen, and most likely Monster Hunter 3 will be playable for the press tomorrow as well. It’s possible that, in addition, there will be news about the release date for the DSi XL and an announcement regarding the black Wii.
In terms of site coverage, we’ll be handling the summit just like any other event. Obviously, it won’t be nearly as big as E3 and I’m not sure how much news and how many assets there will be to post. Nonetheless, you can expect us to immediately share every single goodie from the event. The fun will begin at 9 AM PST, but I’ll be around the whole day for you guys!
