New Nintendo Release Dates! 2


WiiU_LegoCU_0117_02Well, Nintendo announced a bunch of new release dates for upcoming games, so you know what this means: More bitching from me about the lack of any information on Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Seriously, these dates go all the way into April, so I’m afraid that we may be waiting until the spring for it… or — God forbid — summer. Anyway, there are plenty of other games coming, and I’m very pleased to learn when I’ll be able to go undercover in LEGO City… I’ve got the full list right after the jump!

There are some big games in this list, including LEGO CITY: Undercover and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U. (Game & Wario, The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and Wii Fit U are scheduled for the “first half of the year” so we’ll have to wait for more specific dates on those…) The 3DS is getting Fire Emblem Awakening, Brain Age: Concentration Training, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (finally!). Also, the handheld is getting its own LEGO City Undercover game, with the prequel The Chase Begins (which oddly comes out after the Wii U game).

Also, there are still a couple Wii and DS games scheduled, so those systems aren’t quite dead yet! (Though they’re very clearly on life support with people eying the plug anxiously…)

(Writer) I love Animal Crossing, music games (even though I can’t sing or play instruments) and adventure games. And the occasional 40+ hr JRPG when I can find the time! I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, Frank.
