Portable Nintendo software for the rest of 2012 Images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTevQYW0QXCZ-FmuN_Y7lJtQwnPwnmrEq25WOIgTJelxs5TqALy9g

Nintendo release the lineup of portable games from DS, 3DS, and the Nintendo eShop releasing throughout the rest of 2012

First-Party 3DS retail

Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone! (Oct. 1)
Crosswords Plus (Oct. 1)
Style Savvy: Trendsetters (Oct. 22)
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (Oct. 28)
Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! (Nov. 5)
Paper Mario: Sticker Star (Nov. 11)

New trailer for Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

Third-Party 3DS retail
(note: just the worthy selection added)

Unchained Blades (Summer)
Code of Princess (Oct. 9)
Skylanders Giants (Oct. 21)
Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (Oct. 23)
Angry Birds Trilogy (October)
Wreck It Ralph (October)
Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion (Nov. 18)
Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! (Q 3)
LEGO The Lord of the Rings (Q3)
Spy Hunter (Q3)
Scribblenauts Unlimited (Q4)

Unfortunately, both Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate are not listed for 2012 release. Sarcastically speaking, it's because Nintendo can make room for Crosswords Plus and Style Savvy: Trendsetters. Note that Unchained Blades is listed as a retail release, that might have been a mistake.

First-Party eShop exclusives

Pokémon Dream Radar (Oct. 7)
Sparkle Snapshots 3D (Oct. 18)
Pokédex 3D Pro [Nov. 8]
Fluidity: Spin Cycle (Q4)
Wario Land II (Q4 Virtual Console)
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (Q4 Virtual Console)

Third-Party eShop exclusives

Fractured Soul (Q3)
SpeedX 3D (Q4)
Gradius (Q4 Virtual Console)
Mystical Ninja starring Goemon (Q3 virtual Console)
Cave Story (Q3)
NightSky (Q4)
Spirit Hunters Inc. (Q4)
Johnny Impossible (Q3)
Unchained Blades (Q3)

Those four upcoming Virtual Console release better not be the only remaining Virtual Console release for 2012. Due to the disheartened minimum selections, digital retail might be use as filler.

First- Party DS retail

Pokémon Black Version 2 (Oct. 7)
Pokémon White Version 2 (Oct. 7)

Third-Party DS retail
Not worth listing them in my opinion

Good all in all, but the DS is pretty much done with worthwhile releases after Pokémon Black and White 2.

Hey! What about Mirror of Fate!? Neutral

3ds is line up is looking good

Lineup looks really good, just wish the animal crossing game would come out sooner (Spring 2013 seems like forever)... And I also completely agree with you Clαππαd. I doubt any more "good" games will be released for the ds after Black/White 2, which are really good games by the way (I played the Japanese version).

The eshop looks like it's going into a slump this year with far fewer games than last year.

The retail 3DS lineup is looking really good. |D

Fantastic line-up. Looking forward to NEW Art Academy! Smile

I'm not disappointed at the eShop fall lineup, just was expecting more purchases that's all.

can't wait for Fluidity: Spin Cycle and Unchained Blades
August 14th 2012, 10:28 pmsdw4527
Luigi's Mansion 2 has been delayed until the first part of 2013.
August 17th 2012, 1:11 pmGold_Miner
That's a short list of games. Surprised

I hope there's going to be more than that. Prinny

From the eShop list, SpeedX 3D is no longer in Q4, will be release on August 30.

This brings hope that escapeVektor may still be release for this year.
