Nintendo's 2004 GameCube Release ScheduleDavid Smith
Nintendo of America today laid out the bulk of its first-party GameCube release list for the coming year, including official release announcements for several games. The conga-drum rhythm action game Donkey Konga is officially on its way to North America early this fall, and several major titles will now officially see release before the end of the year.
The complete list released by Nintendo today is as follows:
April 5, 2004
Wario Ware, Inc.: Mega Party Game$
May 10, 2004
Custom Robo Battle Revolutions
June 7, 2004
The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure
Q4 2004 (October-December)
Mario Party 6
Metroid Prime 2
Paper Mario 2
Star Fox 2
The fourth-quarter holiday lineup has some surprises -- Metroid Prime 2 will make a 2004 release after all, and despite its grim showing at last year's E3, work on Star Fox 2 apparently proceeds apace. No one was surprised by the news of a sixth Mario Party, though, were they?
We'll no doubt see all of the above and more -- particularly the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker -- at E3 in May, so expect a full report when the show commences.
