The 2010 year is squeaky clean and brand new, but Nintendo has huge plans for it. We already know two huge names, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M will hit shelves this summer, but might the second Zelda title for Wii drop this year too?

Nintendo’s Cammie Dunaway, speaking with Wired, hinted at a 2010 release for the hotly hyped game.

She explained Nintendo’s strategy and why a Wii Zelda sequel to round out the 2010 year seems pretty likely.

“One of the things that’s true for Nintendo is that we’re not driven by a calendar for our release dates. When the games are ready to go, when the quality is perfect, that’s when we release.

“We all benefit if we can keep a pretty steady pace, so the development teams have worked hard to make sure that we’ve got a full lineup this year. If you compare the first half of 2010 with the first half of 2009, it’s night and day. And from some of the things that Mr. Iwata has talked about, and that we will talk about at E3, like Zelda, you know that we’re going to have a good back half of the year, as well.”

There you have it ladies and gents, this may be the year to be a Nintendo fan. Galaxy 2, Metroid and Zelda in the same year? Wowzers.
