Metroid Prime 3 Coming Later than June

Speaking with Newsweek, Nintendo of America’s president and modern day icon Reggie Fils-Amie dropped a bit of info that much of the gaming community had already been anticipating. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption will not see a release until the latter half of 2007 — or in other words, not until later than June. Upon its initial unveiling, the hotly anticipated sequel was tentatively scheduled to hit shelves in early 2007. Gamers were left to feel hopeful that the Wii would not experience the same post-launch drought that has plagued new consoles for generations.

Straight from the Regginator’s mouth: "Metroid is not going to ship by June. We’ve announced all of our games through the end of June." He went on to say that Metroid Prime 2, although a fine product, did not meet sales expectations, and Nintendo and Retro Studios want to make sure that the third installment in the series turns out to be "perfect."
