as much of you might think that those titles are coming to north america and europe this year, well we dont know that for sure. but what we do know is that these titles will be released in japan this year.
well i knew about animal crossing for some time, but i didnt know that there would be a kirby game this year.On page 9 of their Supplementary Information about Earnings Release document released on the 25th, Nintendo has committed to a number of anticipated key franchise titles in Japan—yet remains strangely silent for their prospects in North America and elsewhere.
Titles committed for 2008 Japan release—but not yet given a specific date—include:
Eternal Chronicle (temporary title)
Fire Emblem (temporary title)
Advance Wars: Days of Ruin
Hoshi no Kirby: Ultra Super Deluxe
Wii Music (temporary title)
Super Mario Stadium Family Baseball
Disaster: Day of Crisis
Animal Crossing (temporary title)
Batallion Wars 2
Kirby (temporary title)
Outside Japan, prospects look a bit more bleak. North American release lists show Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit as well as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games due in the spring, and Europeans can expect Kart at a similar time, otherwise-unspecified 2008 releases for Fit and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and an intriguing winter title temporarily known as DS Novel.
