According to an ad placed in this week's edition of trade publication MCV, Nintendo's Metroid: Other M for Wii will be released in September.

This means the wait following the game's launch in North America on August 31 shouldn't be too painful.

Metroid is set to spearhead a strong autumn/winter line-up for Wii which also looks likely to include Kirby's Epic Yarn and Donkey Kong Country Returns.
