Nintendo reveals summer software plans

Ben Parfitt
Next week’s release of Capcom’s Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition marks the beginning of what Nintendo hopes will be a successful summer for its consoles – and the platform holder has now confirmed what titles it will be bringing to the table in the coming months.

Following the delayed release of Wii title Mario Party 8 on July 13th, the highly anticipated Trauma Centre: Second Opinion will hit European shelves on August 10th, followed by the quirky platform-RPG hybrid Super Paper Mario on September 14th.

In addition, the Japanese firm has stated that Wii duo Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles will arrive ‘when the nights start to draw in’ – which almost definitely means this Q4.

Nintendo also confirmed the release dates of a number of DS games, including More Brain Training on June 29th, Elite Beat Angels on July 13th and Pokemon Diamond and Pearl on July 27th. It also confirmed that oddball platformer Freshly Picked – Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland will arrive in Europe on September 14th.
