Impressions about Nintendo’s Media Summit

I personally was quite pleased by the Media Summit and was surprised by the large amount of games that will be released in the first half of this year. I would have never guessed that Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, Sin & Punishment’s sequel, and WarioWare D.I.Y. would all be released before E3 2010.  Nintendo’s titles are also supported by a large amount of promising third party titles. We have Megaman 10, Monster Hunter Tri, Max and the Magic Marker, and Cave Story all being released before July 2010 as well. (Megaman 10 is actually being released next Monday.) The complete list can be seen here at GoNintendo. I’m most excited about Galaxy 2, as the screenshots and videos seem to show that we’ll be able to play around with gravity quite a bit and that the levels will be quite a bit more challenging.

For those of you who are wondering about what games will be released in the latter half of the year, there have been some hints scattered about during some interviews. First, both Cammie Dunaway of NOA and Miyamoto last year mentioned that Zelda will be at E3. Cammie says that she’d win a bet that the Zelda would come out this year along with Mario and Metroid. However, we’ll see whether Zelda actually does come out in 2010. Other than unannounced titles, both Xenoblade and Last Story could still be possibly released in 2010. Cammie Dunaway actually was aware of these titles, which is promising as well. Both RPGs are being published by Nintendo, so I believe Nintendo would have a large marketing push behind one or both of them.
