Nintendo 3DS Galore! More Luigi Than Mario, Donkey Kong Returns (Again) And Animal Crossing

Nintendo have gone all out to prove just how worthy the Nintendo 3DS is as a games console by releases loads of great trailers for a whole load of exciting games.

This all comes from the latest 3DS focused Nintendo Direct, their way of giving us regular updates on all things Nintendo. What’s probably going to excite most people is a huge, 45 minute long Animal Crossing Direct too which gives a great look at the game which is confirmed for release on 14 June.

Other release dates for some other big hitters were also confirmed, such as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate (8 March), Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate (22 March), Luigi’s Mansion 2 (28 March) and Fire Emblem: Awakening (19 April). You can watch videos for some of these games below.

The biggest surprise was probably the new Mario & Luigi RPG (taking place in Luigi’s dreams no less) due for release on 3DS this summer, plus a new installment of the popular Mario Golf series is in the works.

Some other bits of news include a rebuilt version of Wii title Donkey Kong Country Returns for the 3DS, downloadable title Mario and Donkey Kong (see video below) and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate bundles for both the Wii U and 3DS.
