Nintendo US release schedule announced

Nintendo sets the stage for its US catalogue

Nintendo have announced their latest US release schedule, with big games such as Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, The Wonderful 101, Game & Wario, and Pikmin 3. There'll also be some new accessories available for the GamePad as more people get used to the new hardware. Nintendo are releasing a screen protector, cleaning cloth and an extra-large stylus in the US on 4 February. It will cost $12.99.

Nintendo 3DS owners will doubtless be anticipating Fire Emblem: Awakening (dropping on 4 February), while those who play the system for puzzles have a new Brain Training to look forward to. And, of course, there's the release of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon on March 24, as well as Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.

    Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity? WHERE WAS THIS HIDING!?

  2. CDS Thursday 17th Jan 2013 at 17:13

    LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins - April 21

    Or this. More than made my day. Now, can we have a UK release date please? And a comparision between home and handheld console.

    The list overall is looking good.

    What's Nicalis doing releasing new games on American eshop when they haven't even bothered to release Cave story+ and Nightsky over here in European eshop. :evil:

    No release date for animal crossing in America, which isn't good for europe

  4. TheSlenderman Thursday 17th Jan 2013 at 17:46

    These games should just be released over here at the same time as America. I mean, what's the real difference between the American and European versions? An accent?

    European releases have to have the five "core" languages, so English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, hence why they almost always come out after the American version.

    WHERE IS ANIMAL CROSSING?! Rage ensues...

  7. KH81314 Thursday 17th Jan 2013 at 19:20

    The game that i'm waiting for is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Still haven't decided if i'm getting for both consoles or just the Wii U/

    Ahh, yes. I did not take this into account.

    That and the different holidays right? :?

  10. shadowlugia101 Thursday 17th Jan 2013 at 21:09

    my brother got me that wii u starter kit with the protector, cloth, stylus and case and i can honestly say it's an amazing buy for your wii u! i know it doesn't sound great but seriously, it's saved my wii u game pad screen from so many fatal scratches, make sure you buy this along with your wii u. in fact, i believe my brother got it free when he bought new super Mario bros U (but that may have been limited time)

    No release date for animal crossing which isn't good for Europe hopefully there be a release date soon and I just hope it doesnt take much longer. :(

  12. CDS Thursday 17th Jan 2013 at 21:39

    ^^
    Think about it though. Most of those were given rough estimates, and while big, aren't hyped as much as Animal Crossing.
    So it makes sense to keep the release date secret until the time comes to release it.
    And hey, there's still the UK release schedule to be posted.

    I'm very impressed with the LM:DM Box art. Could be the best of 2013.

  14. lrwr14 Friday 18th Jan 2013 at 09:30

    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, Fire Emblem Awakening and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon are the ones I'm looking forward. And if I'm to go by the US release dates then March is going to be a dear month for me.

  15. MartinIsAwesome Friday 18th Jan 2013 at 12:58

    I spy a new free 3DS demo~! And look, it's for FIRE EMBLEM! =D

  16. imbusydoctorwho Friday 18th Jan 2013 at 14:30
