We provide details on Nintendo's big game announcements for Nintendo 3DS

Earlier in the week, we showed details of the Wii U titles showcased at E3 this year (for those who missed it, you can read it right here). In this second part, we review the biggest games coming to Nintendo 3DS through early 2016:

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (Q4 2015) - Released in time for the holiday season, this is the third multiplayer Zelda title, after the Game Boy Advance's The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords (which was remade for Nintendo DSiWare) and the Nintendo GameCube's The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. Unlike those titles, in which the players competed to see who could earn the most Rupees, this is a true co-operative experience, with players sharing a Heart total and working together to clear the game's many dungeons. A brand-new Totem mechanic allows the three Links to stack on top of one another in order to solve puzzles and defeat challenging foes.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (2016) - This is the second title in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series to be released on the Nintendo 3DS, and it returns to the series' roots, with over 720 Pokémon to meet and battle during the journey. The player is transformed into one of over 20 different Pokémon, and enters into a world solely inhabited by the loveable creatures with no memory of their previous existence as a human. This newest entry promises plenty of encounters with Legendary Pokémon, including Reshiram and the Eon twins Latias and Latios. It will be released in Japan just in time for the holiday season, but those in the west need to wait a little bit longer, with an expected release in 2016.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (Summer/Autumn 2016) - True to its title, the latest Animal Crossing game focuses solely on the home design aspect of the franchise, allowing you to design homes for hundreds of animal residents. The game makes use of the new Animal Crossing amiibo figures and Cards to scan new residents into the game, and each boxed copy comes with one amiibo Card to get you started. A bundle will be released which includes an NFC Reader/Writer accessory, for those who don't own a New Nintendo 3DS console, so they can enjoy the full features of the game. It will be released in July 2015 in Japan, and spring 2015 in other parts of the world.

YO-KAI WATCH (2016) - The smash-hit game series finally leaves Japan's borders and treats people in other regions to a game with hundreds of spirits called Yo-kai. The player is able to use a device known as the Yo-kai Watch to locate and befriend these creatures, which can then be used to battle other Yo-kai. It will be released in 2016.

Fire Emblem Fates (2016) - Known in Japan as Fire Emblem If, this hotly-anticipated title features a strong theme of choice. The player character is born into one kingdom, but raised by another one, and must eventually choose a side: the land that birthed him, or the one which raised him. Fire Emblem Fates will be released in Japan in late 2015, and the rest of the globe in 2016.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam (Spring 2016) - Known in Europe and Oceania as Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros., worlds collide as the universes of the Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario series overlap, and Mario, Luigi and Paper Mario must embark on a quest to save their worlds. The battle mechanics are a blend of features from both series, making this the ultimate package for Mario RPG fans. It is expected to launch in Spring 2016.

Hyrule Warriors: Legends (Early 2016) - This portable version of the smash-hit Wii U title includes new features which make organising units on-the-fly much easier. Story elements and characters from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker are included, including the swashbuckling pirate captain, Tetra. This title will launch for Nintendo 3DS in early 2016.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force (2016) - For the first time in the Metroid Prime series, up to four players can connect online and work together to complete co-op missions. A bonus game mode, Metroid Prime: Blast Ball, is a futuristic sports game which pits two teams of three players against each other. This title is expected to launch in 2016.

Well, there you have it. A massive line-up of games for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS to see us through into early 2016. So which titles are your favourites? Is there anything you would have preferred to see, or are you delighted with the surprise announcements that Nintendo provided? Be sure to leave a comment below.
