No Mario at launch?

In the same conference last night that sparked, and then squashed rumors that Super Smash Bros. Brawl would be a Wii launch title, the event quickly turned into a Q&A where further bad news was revealed.

In the round of questions between the press, Masashiro Sakurai (Super Smash Bros. creator) and Shigeru Miyamoto (a man who needs no introduction), the questioning strayed a little from the topic at hand, turning at one point to Miyamoto’s upcoming Super Mario Galaxy (working title). At times, Miyamoto seemed rather forthcoming with details even saying he is trying to work out some sort of multiplayer mode for the game. However, when asked about the release date, Miyamoto became rather coy, replying that while he can’t promise it as a Wii launch title yet, Mario’s latest console outing “will definitely be there within the first six months.”

Just to recap, Wii will supposedly launch with around twenty titles, but two of the most promising Wii games, Super Smash Bros. Brawl (which was promised) and Super Mario Galaxy (which is just assumed), may be absent. So, other than a recycled Legend of Zelda title, what have we really got to look forward to Nintendo?
