    1. Are you kidding!? I am getting at LEAST 5 of those games the day each one is released…Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion, Fire Emblem, Pokemon White 2, Paper Mario. Later I might get Pokemon Black 2 and Super Mario Bros. 2…

      1. Only 3 titles were given actual set-in-stone dates, and we already knew the release date for the XL.

        This is a pretty shitty list.

            1. If you don’t already have a 3DS, then I would go for the XL if you could. I have not seen/held a XL yet but in my opinion the things I like better about it just by looking at photos:

              - System size
              - Rounded corners
              - Better looking 3D Slider
              - Better Select/Home/Start Buttons

              I would be curious to see what the graphics look like on the larger screen. Don’t get me wrong I love my red, original 3DS but I would be interested in looking at an XL. Doers anyone know if they have 3DS XL’s at the Wii U Experience events? I am going to one this Friday and I am curious if the XL’s will be there?

        1. XL seems to be the better choice. The screen has a better 3d viewing angle, better anti glare screen. It’s more comfortable and has a better battery life.
          I would buy XL over the regular but I already have one since launch day :)

        2. The original, yes, the XL no.
          Make sure you get a screen protector for at least the top screen. I recommend the bottom screen too, but the rubber bumpers are awful and the bottom screen can leave scratches on the top one when you close it a lot.

          1. I got HORI Screen Protectors for my 3DS top and bottom screen. A fairly cheap but great screen protector. Pretty easy to apply and very few bubbles. I highly reccomend these.

    1. Explain why it sucks? It is there to take the JAPANESE made games and make them AMERICAN!!! Without Nintendo of America we wouldnt have a lot of the games we have today from Nintendo…

      1. the only thing they give us is nintendo games we had to beg for like 7 7 months for xenoblade and xseed just said fuck it a are releasing last story because noa suckss!

        1. So becuase they didn’t release two games that, if it hadn’t been for all the attention they had gotten they would have sold like crap, NoA is suddenly a terrible company.

    1. I can not wait to play Kirby’s Dream Collection. I have fond memories of playing Kirby’s Dreamland on the original Gameboy and can’t wait to be able to play it again!

  1. if any would like to check out my website its called nintendocenter.wordpress.com but i dont think i will ever be as good as MyNintendoNews

  2. OMG. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
    WHEN THE HELL IS AN ANIMAL CROSSING 3DS RELEASE DATE,
    STOP SHOWING US FREAKING FOOTAGE OF THE GAME AND FEATURES,
    IF WE’RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER FULL YEAR FOR IT
    AND NOT TO MENTION THE ENGLISH VERSION?!?!!?!/ A’;SLDA\ASDDFHOFP\S

    1. ummmm…the game is just starting in development…It wont be out until NEXT Christmas, let alone this upcoming one…

    2. Aeolus likes to suck off monkey dicks, and the monkey is Icy Dead People, and they also seem to be a idiots says:

      Wat? Smash JUST started development, we might see the game in 2014, or if were lucky in 2013. But 2012? Do you really believe that? The game would be absolutely terrible if it came out that early!

      1. I agree, that’s way too early. As a loyal fangirl of nintendo and the super smash bros series, I would actually be screaming to sakurai “TAKE YOUUUUUR TIME!”. I don’t care if it take 2 years or 3 years to be made, a good gamer wants a good game and in order to have a good game, we need to let the team have the time to develop a good game. Also, remember what they said in the E3, that they will try to make it work with 3ds and wii U altogether; Counting as well the graphics of the wii u and the new controls.

  3. Oh wow! I am so getting Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion, Fire Emblem, Paper Mario and Pokemon White all on day 1 release!!! :D I love having money!

      1. They are deciding between Majora’s Mask or a Link to the Past. To be honest, I want Majora’s Mask for Wii U.

          1. yes, I think so. However, I also heard that Miyamoto wants to make the sequel of a link to the past in the 3ds.

  4. The quantity of games on the list is not great. :( The games listed is awesome and I think they forgot to put Code of Princess in there.

  5. Can anybody please tell me what “Holiday” season meana? You know, it’s Summer holiday season in Europe right now, and that term seems to be so unspecific… it could mean anything. :P I guess they mean December?

  6. Did Nintendo forget about Metroid? No anniversary game or news? We love Metroid except for Metroid Other M. Trilogy was the best. Please release a new one.
