What are your plans for the summer? Road trip? A little R&R at the beach? Some time with the family?

Well, your plans pale in comparison to Samus’. She’s going to hunt aliens. In Japan.

Nintendo updated its Japanese 2010 release list today, penciling in Metroid: The Other M for “summer 2010.” Two new games – called Xenoblade and The Last Story – were also added to the list.

Apparently, precisely two games – Monado: Beginning of the World and Cosmic Walker – were removed from the list, so it’s something of a safe bet to guess that those were tentative titles for Xenoblade and The Last Story. But then, Monado hasn’t ducked out of US or European schedules yet, so who knows what’s actually going on.

Oh, right: Nintendo! We’ll mail them and ask about Monado and Cosmic Walker’s mysterious disappearances.

Thanks, andriasang.
