In a recent interview, Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime reaffirmed that the plan is to release the three most anticipated games "all this calendar year".

Reggie was still unable to give solid release dates though, saying that it depends on development. The decision is left to Mr Iwata and Mr Miyamoto to say when a game is ready.
"What I can tell you, for example with Metroid Prime 3, I've seen the latest build. It looks fabulous". When asked if it's possible the games could be delayed until 2008, he responded "I think the risk of that is very, very small".
Encouraging words there, the current Wii lineup could do with a few more meaty titles.
