Nintendo dates 2012 3DS, Wii, DS software line-up

Luigi's Mansion 2! Kid Icarus! Pandora's Tower!

Nintendo has revealed a list of first and third-party games coming to its platforms early next year.

Featured in the release schedule are 3DS highlights such as Resident Evil Revelations, which launches on 27th January alongside the Circle Pad Pro add-on.

Kid Icarus: Uprising follows in March, while Mario Tennis, Luigi's Mansion 2 and the fifth Professor Layton game get vague "2012" release windows.

But what of Paper Mario, Animal Crossing or Monster Hunter Tri G? Nintendo gives no mention of these whatsoever.

DS owners meanwhile can enjoy footy RPG sequel Inazuma Eleven 2, which unexpectedly receives a European passport.

Wii gamers get acclaimed Mistwalker role-player The Last Story on 24th February, with Nintendo-published Pandora's Tower coming in Q2.

There's also Boom Street, a bizarre mash-up of Mario Party, Monopoly and Dragon Quest, as well as an actual new Mario Party and PokÚPark 2.
