Hidden in a sneaky footnote at the end of a press release for Zelda Phantom Hourglass we were sent this afternoon by Nintendo of America, was an indication that Metroid Prime 3 had been delayed.
Back in May Nintendo announced a launch date of August 20th for the title, however the information contained in todays press release stated it will now launch on the 27th August. For those unable to count on fingers, that is 7 days or 1 week.
So not particulary a damaging announcement but one which NOA didn't announce or have even commented on. A European release is still to be confirmed, but expect it by Christmas we'd assume.
