Nintendo dates Metroid Prime 3, Mario Strikers Charged, others

Kids in the U.S. who dreamed of whiling away the summer days with Samus Aran may still be able to jam a few days of visor-scanning fun before class is back in session when Metroid Prime 3: Corruption drops on Aug. 20. At least they'll have Mario Strikers Charged, due out on July 30, to help fill the lemonade-soaked summer break. Nintendo also announced a few other August Wii releases, specifically dating High School Musical: Sing It! and Madden for August 14. Others coming sometime that month include Tiger Woods PGA Tour, Brunswick Pro Bowling, Space Station Tycoon, Dave Mirra BMX Challenge and Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection. Due out in September are Battalion Wars 2, Brothers in Arms, Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal (finally!) and George of the Jungle. Boogie is coming in fall.

Nintendo announced some other notable DS releases for the summer too, including SimCity in July, Heroes of Mana on Aug. 14, Brain Age 2 on Aug. 20, Worms: Open Warfare 2 in August and Jam Sessions in September. We could add something clever here about our relative anticipation of the above games, but we imagine half of your are spinning and giggling wildly in front of your computers and we lost the other half around Looney Tunes. So, feel free to commence your waiting, or check after the jump for even more DS releases.
