Fans looking forward to the June release of Metroid: Other can now start looking forward to its August release, as Nintendo delays the Team Ninja developed title along with Treasure's Sin & Punishment: Star Successor.
Originally scheduled for release in June, the new release date for Metroid's return to form is August 31, giving fans two more months to delve deeper into the background of armoured heroin Samus Aran.
Slightly less painful is the delay of the sequel to Treasure's acclaimed Nintendo 64 shooter Sin & Punishment. Sin & Punishment: Star Successor will now release on June 27, three weeks after the original June 6 target.
No reason is given for the delay of these two eagerly anticipated Wii titles. We've reached out to Nintendo for comment and are awaiting a response. In the meantime, go ahead and update those calendars, and we wouldn't begrudge Samus fans a few light tears.
