Patrick Nagel, deputy marketing manager for Nintendo Germany, recently took part in a Q and A session in the Nintendo Center, according to NintendoCast. He revealed that with some luck Nintendo plans to publish Mario Kart Wii, and definitely release Metroid Prime 3 this year in Europe.

We already know that Metroid Prime 3 is due out in the States August 20th. Could we be seeing Mario Kart this year as well? We have been told its possibly at E3, in July. This is turning into the Year of the Wii!!
