I can't wait for the game to come out this year. I'm so happy :D Twilight Princess awesome game for this year :D
Yoshi's Island 2, Mario Slam Basketball, and the DS browser all Europe-bound before the end of the year.
Nintendo has followed up last month's European DS Lite launch with release dates for the majority of the system's lineup of first-party games through 2006. In addition to dropping dates for anticipated offerings like the DS Browser (October 6) and Yoshi's Island 2 (December 1), the company also shed some light on its GameCube and Game Boy Advance release plans.
The DS Browser launches in Japan on July 24, and the firm European release date comes ahead of anything concrete from Nintendo in the US. The browser software will allow users to surf the Web using the console's dual screens and stylus, and the touch screen will be used to input text. Developed by Nintendo and Web-browser specialist Opera, the package will include both a DS cartridge with the software and a GBA cartridge for data storage. Nintendo's press office so far has no details on the pricing of the Nintendo DS browser in the UK.
The schedule also reveals exact dates for some of the other big DS titles, including Hotel Dusk: Room 215 on November 24 and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team on November 10. First seen at this year's E3 and developed by the studio behind Trace Memory, Hotel Dusk is a stylish film noir-style adventure game in which the player assumes the role of a former cop in search of a missing friend. The Blue version of the latest Pokemon game will launch on the DS alongside the Game Boy Advance Red version.
Unfortunately, the GameCube release schedule isn't quite as firm as the Nintendo DS one, with both Harvest Moon: Magical Melody and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess given loose Q4 2006 release dates. With the Legend of Zelda lined up to be a dual GameCube/Wii release, it's unlikely Nintendo would give a release date on the game before unveiling its full plans for the system's launch.
The full schedule follows. The titles that are are known by different names in the US have been put in parentheses.

althegeek: i bet you don't get anything early. With Nintendo's presence at the SDCC coming up I wouldn't be surprised if they mention the few release dates they haven't yet for that bunch of games.
america listen, for years, we have waited for good nintendo stuff to happen to europe before you, it rarelyhappens, you always get stuff before us, so the one time we get something early, stop moaning and consider us in future.
Theres no sign of Star Fox Command or Loz The Phantom Hour Glass. Both look like being set for 2007 then I guess....
Im with Kindred Sprites, Brother. Quit ur' b!tchn we're due for some news. as far as im concerned, they can delay Twilight Princess as long as they damn well like! it just makes the game that much sweeter. good things come to those who wait. They're oh so close to releasing the new console, and if i were them, id damn well appreciate everyone gettin off my back about release dates. sit tight and shut up! They'll get here when they get here! ZELDA 4 LIFE!
Why is everyone whinging? So you don't have a release date for the browswer. Have a look through that list. Clubhouse Games EU date: 9/29 US: 9/10. English Training, probably won't be released in the US for obvious reasons. Sudoku, EU 10/27 US: out. Actionloop, EU: 10/27, US: out. Pokemons, EU: 11/10, US: 9/18. Mario Hoops, EU: 11/10, US: 9/11. Hotel Dusk EU: 11/24, US: Q4, oh dear, the EU may get one first. Yoshi's Island, EU: 12/2, US: Q4, I bet this will change to before the EU date. Twilight Princess, EU: Wii Launch, US: Wii Launch. Anyone see a pattern? There's still 3 months before the browser comes out in europe, I dare say it will be out in the states before then.
wat about the U.S. we are gamers too u know we should get to know when some of those game get realsed.
Cannot wait for the Opera Browser. I really wanna hear more about the Zelda Titles though; Twilight Princess/Phantom Hourglass. Also wouldn't mind having Harvest Moon in the collection :)
Oh DS Opera browser! I cant wait!!!! I cant wait for the Wii too!!!!!! Congratulation Europe!!!!!!! Oh I am just so happy cause I know that the Wii will get to my hands Q4 2006!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Love Wii
finally, i was witing for Hotel Dusk game, if you read Oficcial Nintendo Magazine in UK you know what am talking about. and DO I SEE ANOTHER BRAIN TRAINING GAME?????????????
Okay that's just absurd, ithe browser is announced and dated in Europe but not even announced for the US? That's bizarre. Oh well, Europeans have to wait unnecessarily long for everything anyways so I guess it's fair.
Yea wheres Legend Of Zelda: The Phantom Hour Glass, I was planning to get that for christmas. Put back into 2007????
I'm hoping they're going to release the Browser in North America, I'd be so pissed off if they didn't.
i_love_my_ds: No, Harvest Moon is owned by Natsume. Why else would there be a special edition of AWL released on PS2? Nintendo is just speaking for the third party here.
hmm, Mario 3on3 comes out near the same time the Wii does? I WAS looking forward to Mario's Basketball game...but...if the Wii comes out around the same time, I doubt I'll find time to play it with a new system in my room.
Well it's about time we get some real info on these titles because when that happens they become real releases instead of hot rumurs.
This is great! Not that it applies to me but now at least there are some general deatails of release dates! Sucks to live in Europe... They almost get everything later than NA!
Well thats sounds pretty cool releases, not sure im interested in the browser yet. But the only release date from Nintendo i want now is the Wii and twighlight princess.
