From puzzles and mysteries to fashion and photo fun, the diverse lineup of games set to arrive for the hand-held Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems during the remainder of 2012 truly has something for everyone.
Nintendo of America today revealed launch dates for several upcoming games, including packaged games that will be available in stores as well as downloadable games and applications that consumers can purchase digitally via the Nintendo eShop.
Upcoming games and software for Nintendo 3DS include new instalments in several of Nintendo’s fan-favorite franchises as well as great games from third-party partners. Newly dated games on the way include the following (details subject to change):
- Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone! (Oct. 1) – Users of any artistic skill level can learn painting and drawing techniques that can be applied to real-life art projects, with optional, additional lessons available for purchase.* The game also lets users share and download certain game content via SpotPass.*

- Sparkle Snapshots 3D (Oct. 18) – Launching exclusively in the Nintendo eShop*, this downloadable game is a fun photography application that lets you personalize your 2D photos by adding 3D layers of stickers, ribbons, pens and other effects. Users can then share creations wirelessly with friends or transfer them to an SD card and email them.
- Skylanders Giants from Activision Publishing, Inc. (Oct. 21) – Fans can look forward to more than 20 new inter-action figures to collect, including Giants that are twice the size of regular Skylanders and new LightCore Skylanders that light up both in the game and in real life when they are placed on the Portal of Power.

While this is brilliant news, I’m still waiting for the new Animal Crossing’s release date!
Nintendo said 2013…
2013 isn’t a release date. 4th February 2013 is an example of a release date.
People always complain they want information on Animal Crossing. It doesn’t matter if Nintendo shares the coolest news about their hottest games coming out at the end of the year, people will always be asking for Animal Crossing. And the moment Nintendo talks about Animal Crossing, people will start saying “that’s nice, but what about Smash Bros?”. The moment Nintendo talks about that, people won’t say “that looks fun”. They’ll say “yeah, whatever. So what about Zelda?”.
im not surprise, because people bitch about yellow line i know they will say what U said.
Yeah, but I’m not that kind of person. I don’t want and want and want. I’m currently hyped for the Wii U and when I get one, I won’t care for anything else for a while. But the new Animal Crossing was revealed well over a year ago and we’re still no closer to it being released.
Nice! I’ve been waiting for Paper Mario news.
I don’t care much about Animal Crossing, but this?
This, I cared about.
Now I know how long I have to save up for it.^_^
Took the words right out of my mouth! Been waiting sooo long for this!
And Animal Crossing!!?
