So, what did you think of today's Nintendo Direct? It's great to finally get solid release dates for the games we've all been waiting for. For 3DS we've got Castlevania on March 8, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on March 22 and Luigi's Mansion 2 on March 28.
Three amazing games and they're all here within the next 6 weeks. The Circle Pad Pro XL hits on March 22 too, which is great news for people like me.
Fire Emblem hits on April 19, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon on May 17 and Animal Crossing now has a date of June 14. As far as I'm concerned that's a really strong line-up leading into E3, where we'll almost certainly hear news about more new games.
Speaking of new games, Nintendo couldn't resist announcing yet more exciting titles.It's the year of Luigi after all and I'm massively excited about the new Mario and Luigi RPG and the new Mario Golf. Both are coming this summer. And the icing on the cake? A brand new Donkey Kong game in the form of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.
I think there's so much to get excited about before we even get to the big reveals at E3 in June.
It's annoying that we have to wait so long for Nintendo to give us release dates but at least we now have them. It's a good time to be a 3DS owner.
